What is the GMAT?

The GMAT is a standardized test that is offered on computer only (although a paper-based test is offered a few times a year in certain regions). The test measures your verbal, quantitative and analytical writing skills. As such, it contains 3 sections, one per topic. The GMAT does not measure anything about your business theory knowledge, job skills, etc.

The format of the GMAT is as follows:

Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) - You have to face 2 writing tasks.

Quantitative Section - This section contains 37 multiple choice questions of two types (which are intermingled with each other on the actual test).

Verbal Section - 41 multiple choice questions of 3 different types: A. Reading Comprehension, B. Critical Reasoning, and C. Sentence Correction.

All information, lessons, and tests, as well as active GMAT experts are available to answer your questions through community Discussions. All this is available freely to members of the LearnHub GMAT Preparation community. So, why not:

Just a short note to inform students that not all universities require a GMAT in order to do an MBA. The University of Leicester in the UK for example. This doesnt't mean that it is not a good university, by the way. I am sure there are more out there who also don't have it as one of their requirements.

That's interesting! I didn't know there were schools that didn't require the GMAT… nearly every one I'd come across did.
