The Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®) exam is a computer-adaptive assessment with proven validity in predicting success in the first year of graduate management education. More than 5,900 programs like yours use it as a consistent, objective way to compare aspiring students worldwide—no matter what their education, age, gender, or citizenship—and to evaluate whether they are prepared for the rigors of a graduate management program. The exam assesses higher-order reasoning skills: Verbal, Quantitative, Analytical Writing, and Integrated Reasoning.
Why Use GMAT Exam Scores
The two main reasons for using the GMAT exam in admissions are:
- Reliability and validity: The GMAT exam is a reliable, valid measure of skills found to be important in graduate management study. In repeat research studies, GMAT scores have been found to be an accurate predictor of academic success in the first year of an MBA or other graduate management program.
- Standard measurement: Unlike grade point averages (GPA)—which vary in meaning according to the grading standards of each school—GMAT scores provide the same standard for evaluating all test takers. That's why you can feel confident making direct comparisons among applicants' GMAT scores.
