The scores provide common measures for comparing the qualifications of applicants and aid in evaluating grades and recommendations.



WHO CREATES THE GMAT TEST?

Who Accepts It?


Any accredited graduate business school (MBA program), or business administration department or division within a school, may require or recommend that its applicants take the GMAT.

WHAT IS THE COMPUTER ADAPTIVE FORMAT?

Each of the first two sections consists of an analytical writing task; the remaining two sections (Quantitative and Verbal) consist of multiple-choice questions delivered in a computer-adaptive format. Questions in these sections are dynamically selected as you take the test; the multiple-choice questions will adjust to your ability level, and your test will be unique.


WHAT IS THE TESTING TIME?

Total testing time for the GMAT is up to 4 hours (including optional breaks).


HOW SCORES ARE DETERMINED?

Your score is determined by:

- the number of questions you answer,

- whether you answer the questions correctly or incorrectly, and

- the level of difficulty and other statistical characteristics of each question.

The questions in an adaptive test are weighted according to their difficulty and other statistical properties, not according to their position in the test.


HOW SCORES ARE REPORTED?

Total GMAT scores range from 200 to 800. Two-thirds of test takers score between 400 and 600. GMAT scores are valid for 5 years.

The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) score is an average of the ratings given to the Analysis of an Issue and the Analysis of an Argument sections. Each response is given two independent ratings. Once both essays have been scored, the scores are averaged to provide an overall score. Scores for the AWA range from 0 to 6 in half-point intervals.

If you chose to receive your Official Score Report online, you will generally receive an email within 20 calendar days of testing,


WHAT TO BRING ON THE TEST DAY?

You must bring valid identification and your admission ticket on test day. You cannot take a test without them.

Valid official ID with your name, signature and photograph must have:


  1. the same name you used when you registered;

  2. your entire first/given name and entire last/family name;

  3. a clear, recent photo;

  4. The names of the GMAT programs to which you would like to send your GMAT scores.
