Welcome to our organization
The Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®) is a standardized test conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council of the Educational Testing Service, ETS, US. The scores of these tests are used as one of the most important parameters by US Universities and top US B Schools in their selection process. The GMAT comprises four sections. Each of the four sections is separately timed.
The first two sections of the GMAT test are collectively known as the Analytical Writing Assessment Section (GMAT AWA Section). The next two sections in the GMAT test are objective type sections, one of which is the Quantitative section and the other is the Verbal section.
Section 1 - Analysis of an Issue (30 min)
The first section in GMAT-CAT is an analytical writing task and has to be completed in the first 30 minutes. In this section, the candidate is expected to analyse an issue, take a position and support it using relevant reasons and examples from his or her own experience, observation, or reading.
Section 2 - Analysis of an Argument (30 min)
The second section in GMAT-CAT is also an assesment of analytical writing skills and is to be completed during the next 30 minutes. In this task, the candidate has to analyse how logically persuasive the argument presented in the question is?
Section 3 - Quantitative Section (75 min) - 37 questions
This section (Quantitative) consists of multiple-choice questions delivered in a computer-adaptive format. Questions in this sections are dynamically selected as you take the test. Therefore, your test will be unique, and the multiple-choice questions will adjust to your ability level. A total of 37 questions are served in this section and comprise two types of questions within this section viz., Problem Solving and Data Sufficiency.
Section 4 - Verbal Section (75 min) - 41 questions
The last section in GMAT - CAT is the Verbal section. This one is also a multiple-choice section delivered in a computer-adaptive format. There are three types of questions in this section viz., Reading Comprehension, Sentence Correction and Critical Reasoning.
At the end of the GMAT test, you will be given an unofficial score for the third and fourth section (i.e. the multiple choice Quantitative and Verbal sections). The official GMAT scores that include your performance in the Analytical Writing Assessment will be sent by mail to you a few weeks after you have taken the GMAT test.
The scores in the quant section and the verbal section of the GMAT test are cumulatively graded and represented on a scale of 200 to 800. Your performance in the GMAT AWA sections are rated on a scale of 1 to 6.
The Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®) is a standardized test that helps B Schools evaluate calibre of candidates who apply for higher studies in business and management. Business schools employ the GMAT test as one of the parameters for judging future academic performances of applicants in an MBA or in other graduate management programs.
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) comprises four sections. Each of the four sections is individually timed. The first two sections comprise a written analysis task. The next two sections (Quantitative and Verbal) consist of multiple-choice questions delivered in a computer-adaptive format. The GMAT measures basic verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills that you have developed in the course of your education and work.
The mechanics behind GMAT - CAT
The multiple-choice questions of the GMAT test is drawn from a large pool ranging from a low to moderate to high level of difficulty. Each section of the test starts with a question of moderate difficulty. If you answer that question correctly, the computer will throw a harder question next. If you answer the first question incorrectly, the second one will be easier. This process will continue until you complete the section. At the end of the section, the GMAT-CAT software will have an accurate assessment of your ability in that subject area.
In a computer-adaptive test, only one question is presented at a time. As the GMAT test adapts to your performance in the previous question(s), it does not allow you to skip, return to, or change your responses to previous questions. It is therefore, extremely important to double check before confirming your choice for any question.
