The GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) is a computer–adaptive test (CAT) required by most business schools. If you want to get accepted to a competitive school, your GMAT score is very important. However, GMAT scores vary in importance at different schools.
In addition to your GMAT score, schools consider your duration of work experience and the caliber of that experience (again, especially for more competitive programs), undergraduate GPA, letters of recommendation, interview, and essays. Be sure to contact the specific programs to which you are applying in order to determine their unique requirements.
What specifically does the GMAT test?
The GMAT is comprised of 3 sections: an Analytical Writing Section, a Quantitative Section, and a Verbal Section. See more information about each section..
How is the GMAT scored?
A GMAT score is made up of several different numbers, each of which covers a part of your performance on the GMAT. The most familiar number is the overall, or composite, GMAT score. This number ranges from 200 to 800 in 10-point increments and is determined from a combination of your scores on the Quantitative and Verbal Sections of the test. Business schools tend to focus on your composite GMAT score.
