Graduate Management Admission Test(GMAT)

Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a standardized test,primarily intended to aid the graduate schools of business for assessing the candidates for study. GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) is developed and administered by the US-based "Educational Testing Service" (ETS) under the direction of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), a non-profit organization.

The test is a pre-requisite for admission in most of the business schools in US, Canada and other parts of the world too. The scores of the GMAT test are taken into consideration by national business schools too.

Eligibility:Anyone and everyone are eligible for taking the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test). There is no minimum educational qualification requirement for taking the test. The test results are deemed to be valid by the universities for five years.

If a candidate`s age is below 18 years, then he/she has to send a written form to "GMAT Customer Services"of his/her region signed by parents or local guardian. This form authorizes such candidates to take the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) exam and states that the applicant and parent or legal guardian agrees to adhere to all the terms and conditions specified by the GMAC (Graduate Management Admission Committee).

Contents of the test:

The GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) examination consists of three main parts
  • Analytical Writing Assessment:

    The analytical writing section require one to write two essays (each of 30 minutes). In the first part the candidate needs to analyze an issue that is given to them. The second part is an analysis of an Argument, in which a given argument has to be critically analyzed and evaluated. This section deals with the `Analytical` skills of the applicant rather than his/her writing skills.

  • Quantitative section:

    The 37 questions in this section comprise two kinds of questions: Problem Solving (PS) and Data Sufficiency (DS). While the Problem Solving question requires one to solve a mathematical problem directly and choose the right answer, the Data Sufficiency is of a trickier variety.
    This section tests the level of Mathematics which is comparable with the level of Class 10 exams, with questions on Number Systems, Percentages, Fractions and Decimals, Algebra (including Quadratic Equations), Geometry (including Basic Coordinate Geometry), Ratio & Proportion, Area & Volume of 2-D and 3-D diagrams, Probability etc.

  • Verbal section:

    The verbal section in GMAT requires the basic skills of correct English coupled with reasoning and analysis. There are three types of questions asked in this section- Sentence Correction (SC), Critical Reasoning (CR) and Reading Comprehension (RC). The three types are intermingled.
