GMAT Test Information
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a standardized admission test used primarily by business schools as a factor in the admissions process for MBA programs. Many business schools use GMAT scores as an admission criteria for various graduate management programs, including: MBA, Master of Finance, and Master of Accountancy. Although many programs now accept a GRE score, the GMAT continues to be the prevalent standardized admissions test used by top business schools.
The current format of the GMAT contains four separately administered sections:
Analytical Writing - 30 minute time limit.
Integrated Reasoning - Contains 12 questions with a 30 minute time limit.
Quantitative - Contains 37 questions with a 75 minute time limit.
Verbal - Contains 41 questions with a 75 minute time limit.
GMAT scores range from 200 to 800. Scores are given in 10 point increments with recent average scores of 540. Most business schools place increasing emphasis on the combined verbal and quantitative score because this score gets reported in their class profiles of the students that were admitted into their business programs.
