What is GMAT?





GMAT stands for Graduate Management Admission Test and its acronym is literal. GMAT is from the GMAC™ organization and, although it is originally of American origin, it has spread throughout the world and is requested by university students and professionals who want to apply for a Master's, MBA and EMBA to be admitted to the best universities and international business schools and also, as a differentiating element to add the result to your CV.

Due to the difficulty and characteristics of GMAT compared to other types of exams, the preparation of GMAT has to be addressed about 6 months before submitting the application to a Postgraduate. It does not measure your knowledge in the evaluated areas, it is an exam that assesses the analytical capacity of the examinees to solve a question in record time. In order to obtain a score equivalent to 650/70, the average preparation time is usually 3 months.

GMAT is a standard, adaptive test that evaluates the capacity of the examinee in Argumentation, Language, Mathematics and Integrated Reasoning from different points of view such as: ability to argue about a fact, critical reasoning, solution of mathematical problems, analysis of sufficiency of data and reading comprehension to analyze the message that the author conveys to us. The exam aims to measure the skills you consider necessary to be successful at the professional level to which you aspire to access.

In GMAT there is no concept of passing or failing, the minimum score is 200 and the maximum is 800 points, but each university or business school has "cut-off marks" that are reflected on their respective websites in the "requirements" section. of admission". That average GMAT score helps them know what score you must get to have a certain chance of being admitted. There are always exceptions, but the GMAT score is a very important factor to consider throughout the application process.

GMAT adaptive test with variable difficulty:

GMAT has many variables that, in general, we have not known in another type of test, except for GRE: it is done on a computer and one of the most outstanding characteristics is that it is an adaptive test. What does that mean? That the difficulty of the exam varies throughout the questions, depending on the answer you give, the level of the following ones changes and it ends up adapting to your level.

For complete preparation, it is necessary to do training with adaptive tests of GMAT, in real time.
