What is the GMAT®?
The GMAT® is the Graduate Management Admission Test, a standardized computer adaptive test. Like all aptitude tests, it must choose a medium in which to measure ‘academic ability’. The GMAT® has chosen Math and English to do so by testing quantitative and verbal reasoning skills.
The GMAT® is used primarily for post-graduate program admission to Business Schools/universities/colleges, and, in particular, MBA programs.
What is a computer adaptive test?
CAT means the level of difficulty of each Quantitative or Verbal question is determined by whether the previous question was answered correctly or not. It also means you cannot skip questions and go back to them later on. You are obliged to answer each question before being able to move on. There is always one (and only one) correct answer for each question.
Why take the GMAT®?
The test is taken by prospective candidates of all ages from all over the world and it is used primarily for admission into Business Schools/universities/colleges. Since applicants come from varying backgrounds standardized tests provide admission officers with a common measure to compare the candidates' qualifications. Besides admission on higher education programs, the Schools may use the GMAT scores when evaluating Tuittion waiver/ Scholarship applications.
