The GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) is a 3½-hour (4 hours with breaks) standardized exam designed to predict how test takers will perform academically in graduate management programs such as MBA programs. GMAT scores are used by graduate business schools to make admission decisions. The GMAT exam has four sections– Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative, and Verbal. The maximum scaled score for the test is 800: verbal and quantitative sections are each worth 800 points. The final score is an average of these two scores.
