The GMAT is short for Graduate Management Admission Test and is a computer-based, standardized test that is used as the criterion for admission for a wide range of international business schools. Over 5,400 programs of over 1,500 universities across 83 countries worldwide rely on GMAT as the standard selection criteria.
The score attained in GMAT depends on the number of questions answered, the accuracy of the answers, and also the difficulty level of the questions. The GMAT test has introduced into it the integrated reasoning section to rate the student’s skills in data evaluation.
Potential questions that may appear in GMAT range from low level of difficulty to a high level. For each section of the test, the questions begin with a moderate level of difficulty. On being provided the right answer, the computer will give students harder questions. In case the answer is inaccurate, the next one that follows will be easier than the one attempted. This is an ongoing process, which continues until the completion of the section. This is how a student’s abilities in that subject area are assessed.
The main range of graduate management programs that Business Schools
use GMAT as the entry criteria for are MBA, Master of Finance, and Master of Accountancy. As per a recent survey done by Kaplan Test Prep, the GMAT is the first choice for those looking to study MBA despite the growing acceptability of the GRE scores in business schools.
