GMAT ( Graduate Management Admission Test)
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is used by many graduate schools of business and management as a criterion when considering applications for admission to the school’s graduate programmes.
The GMAT measures verbal, mathematical, analytical writing and reasoning skills of students. The GMAT is a four-hour computer-adaptive test. Your performance on previous questions determines which question you’ll be asked next. Questions that appear early in the exam impact your score more than those appearing at the end of the exam.
The Analytical Writing Section has one essay which asks students to “analyse and critique the argument.”
The Verbal Section consists of sentence correction questions, reading comprehension, and critical reasoning exercises.
The Quantitative Section tests high-school level math. The students are required to be familiar with arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis.
