The GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) is a standardized exam designed to predict how test takers will perform academically in MBA (Masters in Business Administration) programs. GMAT scores are used by graduate business schools to make admission decisions. The GMAT is developed by GMAC (Graduate Management Admission Council), which determines what kinds of skills the GMAT should measure — and how it should measure them. Another organization actually develops the test questions, administers the test, and reports test scores to the schools — all at the behest of GMAC.
What is on the GMAT and how long is it?
The GMAT™ Exam Has Four Sections and is computer-delivered:
Analytical Writing Assessment—measures your ability to think critically and to communicate your ideas (30 minutes, 1 question);
