GMAT
back
The globally standardized Graduate Management Admission Test is an aptitude test in the English language, designed by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and offered world-wide on behalf of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). The GMAT is a test required by almost all business schools. Practically speaking, the GMAT is therefore likely to be the most important deciding factor for business school admission. Two 30-minute essays and multiple choice questions are employed to test the aptitude for academic study. Strong nerves and the ability to cope with pressure are also put to the test. Enormous time pressure reigns for four hours, in which the language, mathematics and written parts of the test are alternated. The test concentrates on the candidate's abilities at solving logical problems. Depending on business school, the score generally needed is between 550 and 650 points. Top business schools will even expect 680 or more points. The top score that can be attained is 800 points.

You may take the GMAT as often as you like, but test fees will be charged each time. Test results are saved for five years and the last three GMAT scores are sent to business schools. It may happen that a business school gives preference to a person who gets a good score the first time over a large number of other applicants with comparable GMAT scores. In principle, due to the average score to be published, business schools are happy to get any candidate with the desired score; Admission offices will not care how many attempts were needed. However, it is still advisable to prepare the best you can, so you can get the score you want on the first try.
 
The test fee is US$250.
