About GMAT

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is an adaptive computer-based examination administered by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). It is used as a method for assessing application to business and/or management programmes, and is accepted by more than 2,100 institutions and universities around the world. The GMAT assesses an individual’s problem-solving abilities, reading and verbal reasoning skills, and analytical writing competency in written English-- all of which are essential not only for securing admission to their desired graduate management programmes, but also to achieving success in the field of business. While the GRE General Test remains popular for applicants to graduate programmes, the GMAT is considered a better assessment of one’s aptitude for business, and therefore is a more reliable measure of an applicant’s capability. This makes the GMAT an essential aspect of your application to MBA and MiM programmes, and necessitates a focused plan for preparation.  

Who Can Take the GMAT?

However, considering that the GMAT is usually a part of one’s application to graduate-level management programmes, you must ensure that you meet the criteria set by the institutions and/or programmes that you are applying to. For most programmes, applicants are expected to have graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in any stream. Some programmes might also require applicants to possess a certain amount of work experience. You must ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements for the programme when you shortlist the institutions you desire to apply to. The GMAT can be attempted up to five times in a 12-month time frame, with a gap of at least 16 days from the previous attempt, and eight times in total in an applicant’s lifetime.

  2. Are GMAT scores valid in India?
