GMAT Preparation Course

What is GMAT?
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a computer-adaptive test (CAT) designed to provide a common yardstick by which business school admissions committees can measure applicants and their ability to succeed in their graduate programs, such as a MBA. On test day, you have three and a half hours to complete the four sections of the GMAT exam – Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative, and Verbal.

Who should take the GMAT?
The GMAT exam will help you stand out during the admissions process. The GMAT exam is the most widely used and trusted indicator of academic success in MBA and other graduate business degree programs. In fact, most of the MBA admissions decisions are made using a GMAT score. So if you’re serious about business school, take the GMAT exam.

The GMAT Exam at a Glance

The GMAT exam is a computer-adaptive test designed to provide a common yardstick by which business school admissions committees can measure applicants and their ability to succeed in their MBA programs.

The GMAT test consists of four sections, and you'll receive a separate score for each. The Quantitative and Verbal sections contribute to the most important score, called the Total Score, which is on a range from 200 to 800.

Effective from 16 April 2018, the Quantitative and Verbal sections will have fewer questions. New test time and format is as below:

Section Time / Format
Analytical Writing Assessment 30 mins for 1 essay
Integrated Reasoning 30 mins for 12 questions
Quantitative 62 mins for 31 questions
Verbal 65 mins for 36 questions

What is Computer Adaptive Test?

The GMAT computer adaptive test (CAT) is more than just a computerized version of a paper-and-pencil test. On the GMAT, the CAT actually adapts to your performance as you're taking the test. Understanding how the CAT works and knowing a few strategies specific to this particular format can have a direct, positive impact on your score.

When you begin the GMAT, the computer assumes you have an average score and gives you a question of medium difficulty. As you get answers correct, the computer serves up more difficult questions and increases its estimate of your ability. And vice versa, as you answer incorrectly, the computer serves up easier questions and decreases its estimate of your ability. Your score is determined by an algorithm that calculates your ability level based not just on what you got right or wrong; but also on the difficulty level of the questions you answered.

You only have one shot...
Because each answer directly affects the next question, the CAT does not allow you to go back to questions you've already answered. On the GMAT CAT, you see only one question at a time. You won't see the next question until you've provided an answer to the one in front of you. Once you've confirmed your answer, that's it.

If you don't know, guess
Since you can't revisit previous questions, if you don't know an answer, guess. Try to guess strategically by eliminating wrong answer choices, etc. But since there is a penalty for each unanswered question, it's even better to guess randomly than leave a question unanswered.
