GMAT Test Information

The GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) is a standardized test taken by students who are applying to postgraduate business management courses in the US and in some other parts of the world. The GMAT is a test of verbal and mathematical reasoning skills, analytical writing and integrated reasoning, and is designed to identify candidates most likely to succeed in graduate business school.

The GMAT is owned by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). Admissions committees at graduate business schools use the scores along with undergraduate records, work experience, recommendations and other relevant criteria in evaluating candidates for admission to MBA and other business-related courses. For some courses GMAT is a prerequisite; for others it may be recommended or not required. Always check the requirements of individual institutions before applying.

The GMAT is currently a computer-based test offered at centers in the US and in many other countries. Since 2006, the GMAC has given the test question and software development to ACT Inc, and has given Pearson Vue the responsibility for delivery of the test at test centers. The latest version of the test includes an integrated reasoning section.
