You start your GMAT by writing a short essay about a specific topic given to you. This section tests your ability to clearly express your arguments and lines of thought. We advise you to structure your essay in five paragraphs: start with a short intro, then make three points or arguments, and close your essay with a conclusion or weighting of your arguments. Most universities do not pay particular attention to this section.
