The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a Standardized test – delivered in English – that measures verbal, mathematical and analytical writing skills. GMAT helps business schools in assessing the potential of applicants for advanced study in business and management. Nearly 900 management institutes all over the world (almost all of them in the US) give admission in the MBA program on the basis of GMAT scores.The GMAT test is developed and administered by the US-based Pearson VUE under the direction of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), a non-profit organization of graduate business schools worldwide. For the conduct of the test, Pearson VUE has appointed testing centers in various countries.Anyone is eligible to appear in GMAT. There are no restrictions based on age or qualifications. The test scores are valid for five years, i.e., most universities accept scores up to five years old.
The GMAT (CAT) Graduate Management Admission Test is a three-and-one-half hour computer adaptive test. There are four sections as shown in above:
The GMAT results comprise four different scores: a total score (which is the combined verbal and quantitative scores), a separate Verbal score, a separate Quantitative score, and an Analytical Writing score. The total score is reported on a scale from 200 to 800. The Verbal and Quantitative Scores are reported on a scale of 0 to 60. For the AWA score, the scale is from 0 to 6. Note that your AWA performance is not reflected in your total GMAT score (on 800). You get to know your total, verbal, and quantitative score immediately after taking the test. Official GMAT score reports, which include the AWA scores, are mailed approximately two weeks after you take the test.
