USEFUL TIPS

GMAT ( The Graduate Management Admission Test)
.

Introduction :
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a standardized test which has been widely used as part of the assessment process for admission to MBA programs in Business Schools for many years. Initially used in admissions by 54 schools, the GMAT® is now used by more than 1,500 schools and 1,800 programs.
The GMAT® measures basic verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills that you have developed over a long period of time in your education and work.
The GMAT® exam was created to measure the academic abilities needed to succeed in graduate management education. Over the 50 years of its use, the GMAT® has been repeatedly studied, tested, and modified to ensure that it continues to help predict performance in the first year or midway through a graduate management program.
Format and Timing
The GMAT® consists of three main parts, the Analytical Writing Assessment, the Quantitative section, and the Verbal section. 
Analytical Writing Assessment
You begin the GMAT® with the Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA). The AWA consists of two separate writing tasks—Analysis of an Issue and Analysis of an Argument. You are allowed 30 minutes to complete each one. 
Quantitative Section
Following an optional five-minute break, you begin the Quantitative Section of the GMAT®. This section contains 37 multiple-choice questions of two question types—Data Sufficiency and Problem Solving. You will be allowed a maximum of 75 minutes to complete the entire section.
Verbal Section
After a second optional five-minute break, you begin the Verbal Section of the GMAT®. This section contains 41 multiple choice questions of three question types—Reading Comprehension, Critical Reasoning, and Sentence Correction. You are allowed a maximum of 75 minutes to complete the entire section.

Retake the Test
 
Retest Policy
The Graduate Management Admission Council® has established a retest policy to ensure the validity and security of the GMAT® for all test takers.
You may take the Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®) only once per calendar month and no more than five times within any 12-month period. (If you are eligible to retake the GMAT® and wish to make a test appointment now, see Schedule a GMAT Appointment.)
The retest policy applies even if you cancel or ETS cancels your scores from a test administration within that time period (see Canceling Your Scores). Test scheduling representatives and test center administrators are not authorized to waive or modify the retest policy for any reason.
If you take the GMAT® more often than allowed, your new scores will not be reported and you will forfeit your test fee. You may also be prohibited from future GMAT® testing. The retest policy will be enforced even if a violation is not immediately identified (for example, because of inconsistent registration information) and your test scores are reported. In such cases, your scores will be canceled and your score report recipients will be notified of the cancellation.
Retest Policy Appeals
If you wish to take the GMAT® more than five times within a 12-month period, you must request permission in writing by mail or e-mail. Requests will only be accepted after the fifth test has been taken.
Your written request must contain the following information:

  1. reason for wanting to test more than five times
  2. previous test dates and locations
  3. full (legal) name
  4. mailing address
  5. date of birth (at least month and day)
  6. most recent test appointment number (if known)
  7. daytime telephone number
  8. fax number (if available)
  9. e-mail address (if available)
  10. Social Security or national ID number (optional)

Sending Schools Your New Scores

If you retake the test and want to send your new scores to schools you have previously designated as score recipients, select these schools at the time you retake the GMAT®. Your scores from the three most recent test dates within the last five years will be reported to the institutions you designate as score recipients.

To send your scores to additional schools, you may submit an additional score report request for a fee after you retake the GMAT®. For instructions on submitting a request, see Sending Your Scores to Schools.
