- Integrated Reasoning section; this aims to measure how well you can integrate data to solve complex problems by testing your ability to evaluate relevant information, synthesize information presented in graphics and numbers, organize information in solving multiple interrelated problems, etc
- Quantitative section; this measures problem solving skills by using basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra and data analysis.
