The scoring of the test  of the gmat is not done is the traditional way.in traditional multiple choice tests questions are fixed which dont change during exam.But in gmat exam computer choose  next question based on the result of previous question's answer.in a computer-based adaptive test, the computer builds your score as you progress through the test.

When you begin the test, the computer has not assessed your skills and assumed that you are average. Therefore, it gives you a question which is of average difficulty level. Based on your answer, the computer adjusts the initial adjustment and rates you as above- or below- average, and gives you the next question. Then based on your response to the first two questions, the computer gives you a third question and so on till the end of the test. In this way, the computer ‘builds’ your score.IF the examinee answers correctly, the next questions are harder. If the examinee answers incorrectly, the next questions are easier.

For each  of the three section, you receive a sub-score (e.g., you may score a 4 on the AWA, 37 on the verbal section, and 40 on the quantitative section). The combination of your quantitative and verbal scores determine your scaled score, which is given on a scale of 200-800 and is not influenced by the AWA score.
