About GMAT
 


GMAT, standing for the Graduate Management Admission Test, is a standardized test one has to prepare for by the management aspirants to get enrolled in foreign business schools.

It rather follows advanced software technology, i.e. the computer, for answering of the questions. In this four hour paper, one has to score a minimum of 500-600 out of a total of 800 marks to see the green light. Considered as the first major hurdle, GMAT test is just the first out of the several parameters to be met by the applicant for getting an entry into world-famous B-schools.
