The GMAT or the Graduation Management Admission test is a 210 minute standardized exam conducted several times a year to facilitate admissions to graduate level MBA programmes around the world. The GMAT test scores are the most widely accepted test scores for admission into business schools, world over. 9 out of 10 admissions, globally, are done using the GMAT score.
The GMAT is developed by the GMAC (Graduate Management Admission Council), a global non-profit council of business schools, who determine what kinds of skills an MBA student requires and how best to test those skills through a test. However, the actual test questions are developed by another organization which also administers the test and reports the scores to
the schools, at the behest of the GMAC.
The GMAT is currently administered primarily through the computer, except in some remote locations. The GMAT tries to measure 4 key abilities: analytical writing, quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning, and integrated reasoning.
