It is of the acronym Graduate Management Admission Test. It is a computer adaptive test (CAT) which assesses a person’s analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in standard written English in preparation for being admitted into a graduate management program, such as an MBA. More than 5,900 programs offered by more than 2,100 universities and institutions use the GMAT test as part of the selection criteria for their programs site. Business schools use the test as a criterion for admission into a wide range of graduate management programs, including MBA, Master of Accountancy, and Master of Finance programs.


The GMAT test is computer adaptive, meaning that instead of determining your score using a fixed set of questions, the exam provides you with questions of variable difficulty based on your answers to previous questions. GMAT test questions are not pre-set in advance. The GMAT begins with a question of average difficulty and if you answer it correctly, you will receive a slightly harder second question. If you answer it wrong, you will receive a slightly easier second question. Your third question, in turn, is based on your response to the second question, and so on. In this way, the GMAT test zeroes in on your ability level and assigns you a corresponding score. Because your real-time performance on the exam is essential to a final computation of your score, the way you take the GMAT test will differ greatly from your experience with other exams.


The GMAT test started in 1953 and administered by Graduate Management Admission Council with standardized test centers in 112 countries around the world.The GMAT test score is accepted by thousands of graduate and business schools as well as departments and divisions within these schools in USA and other countries.


The GMAT test consists of four sections: Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative and Verbal Section. Total testing time is three and a half hours, but test takers should plan for a total time of approximately four hours, with breaks. Test takers have 30 minutes for the Analytical Writing Assessment and another 30 minutes to work through 12 questions, which often have multiple parts on the Integrated Reasoning section and are given 75 minutes to work through 37 questions in the Quantitative section and another 75 minutes to get through 41 questions in the Verbal section.

  • Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) – Test takers now have to write only 1 essay – Analysis of an Argument.
  • Integrated Reasoning Section – includes the following items: – Multi -Source Reasoning, Graphics Interpretation, Two–Part Analysis and Table analysis. Test takers will see at least questions based on each item.
  • The Quantitative Section – includes problem solving and data sufficiency based on algebra, geometry and arithmetic.
  • The Verbal Section – Includes Reading Comprehension, Critical Reasoning and Sentence Correction questions.
