All officially accredited business schools require Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) scores for their applications, so if you want to go to B-school, then there are a few things you should know about how to register for it. The following guide provides a number of links to useful pages on the Official GMAT website, as well as general information regarding test dates and score reports.
Fortunately, there are a number of GMAT test centers available for the computer-based exam, and each of these has a number of scheduled appointments available every day. As a result, it is usually easy to find a center and time to accommodate your schedule.
GMAT Cheat Sheet – What to say when people ask you about the test
- There are three different sections, including an Analytical Writing Assessment (2 essays: analysis of an argument and analysis of an issue), Quantitative Section (37 questions in 75 minutes), and Verbal Section 41 questions, inclusive of reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence correction).
- The computer-based exam adapts to the skill level of the test-taker, which means that if you get a problem wrong, then the following questions will be easier, but they won’t be worth as many points.
- Score reports for the three multiple-choice sections are available before you leave the test center. (The Official Score Report, including the writing assessment, can be found online approximately 20 days afterward. You will be sent an email with a link that will access your scores on the GMAC website.)
