The Graduate Management Admission Test

Introduction :

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a standardized test which has been widely used as part of the assessment process for admission to MBA programs in Business Schools for many years. Initially used in admissions by 54 schools, the GMAT® is now used by more than 1,500 schools and 1,800 programs.

The GMAT® measures basic verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills that you have developed over a long period of time in your education and work.

The GMAT® exam was created to measure the academic abilities needed to succeed in graduate management education. Over the 50 years of its use, the GMAT® has been repeatedly studied, tested, and modified to ensure that it continues to help predict performance in the first year or midway through a graduate management program.
