All about GMAT

The GMAT test is computer adaptive, meaning that instead of determining your score using a fixed set of questions, the exam provides you with questions of variable difficulty based on your answers to previous questions. GMAT test questions are not pre-set in advance. The GMAT begins with a question of average difficulty and if you answer it correctly, you will receive a slightly harder second question. If you answer it wrong, you will receive a slightly easier second question. Your third question, in turn, is based on your response to the second question, and so on. In this way, the GMAT test zeroes in on your ability level and assigns you a corresponding score. Because your real-time performance on the exam is essential to a final computation of your score, the way you take the GMAT test will differ greatly from your experience with other exams. Specifically:

  • You will see only one question on the screen at a time. You cannot move onto another question until you answer the current one. Once you answer a question, you cannot return to it or review any questions that you have already answered.
  • Correct responses to difficult questions are worth more than correct responses to easy questions. The raw number of correct questions answered is not indicative of your final score.

Despite these variables, the GMAT test will always present you with a fair mix of questions with regards to content areas for a given section. For instance, any test-taker will receive the same rough mix of arithmetic, algebra, and geometry questions on the quant portion of the test.

How to Book a GMAT Slot

GMAT Registration:

Test Center Rules:

As anyone who has taken a real GMAT will attest, the testing center rules are stricter than airport security. Pearson VUE, the company that administers the test for GMAC, imposes these stringent rules in order to prevent test-takers from escaping with copies of questions on the exam to share with others. This is a good time to note that the GMAC has recently taken extraordinary steps to track down students who post current GMAT problems on the internet and who cheat during the exam. For those that need proof, here is a link to a story about the Scoretop scandal. If you are caught cheating, the GMAC will invalidate your test scores. Business schools, upon learning this information, will remove your application for consideration or, if you have already been granted a space in their program, withdraw your acceptance letter. Here are the rules imposed within the testing center:

Testing Tools:

Calculators, protractors, notebooks, and watches are strictly prohibited and may not be taken into the testing room. You may not bring your own scrap paper. Instead, the Test Proctor will provide you with a laminated Test Simulation Booklet and Pen. Keep in mind that the Test Simulation Booklet operates essentially like a dry-erase board. However, rather than being provided with an eraser for your work, if you run out of space, you must draw the attention of the proctor who will provide you with a new booklet for each used booklet you return.

Note About Watches:

A countdown clock is viewable in the test software, so you will be able to see how much time is remaining in the given test section. (You may also choose to hide this clock if you find it distracting.) Personal stopwatches and/or countdown clocks are not permitted.

Breaks & Bathrooms: You are allowed two optional 8-minute breaks according to the following schedule:

  • Analytical Writing Assessment (60 minutes)
  • 8 minute break
  • Quantitative Section (75 mintues)
  • 8 minute break
  • Verbal Section (75 minutes)

Total: 226 minutes (3 hours, 46 minutes) including breaks

While these breaks are labeled as ‘optional’, we cannot stress enough the importance of letting your mind recover from a long section of stressful work. Therefore, take advantage of these breaks! Stretch your legs, get some water, use the restroom. However, make sure your break doesn’t extend past the 10-minute mark, or you may reduce the amount of time you have to solve questions.

Food and Beverages:

Food and beverages are not allowed in the testing room.

Noise and Earplugs:

Please be respectful of your fellow test-takers by being as quiet as possible. Note that there may be some noise as new test takers arrive and are seated by the test proctor. Just as in official GMAT test centers, students do not begin the exam all together, but instead each student is seated in order of arrival. It is important that you get use to some noise, since there are always some distractions at official test-centers. If you would like, you may request earplugs from the test proctor.
