The Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®) is required by most MBA graduate programs. It includes analytical writing, quantitative, and verbal questions using a computer-adaptive format-the test adjusts to your individual ability level. Questions are chosen from a very large pool of test questions categorized by content and difficulty. Only one question at a time is presented to you on the screen. The first question is always of middle difficulty. The selection of each question thereafter is determined by your responses to all previous questions. In other words, the adaptive test adjusts to your ability level-you will get few questions that are too easy or too difficult for you. You must answer each question and may not return to or change your answer to any previous question. If you answer a question incorrectly by mistake-or correctly by lucky guess-you answer to subsequent questions will lead you back to questions that are at the appropriate level of difficulty for you.
Every test contains trial multiple-choice questions needed for pre-testing for future use.
These questions, however, are not identified and appear in varying locations within the test. You should therefore do your best on all questions. Answers to trial questions are not counted in the scoring of your test.
The verbal and quantitative scores range from 0 to 60, although scores below 10 and above 46 are rare. These scores are on a fixed scale and can be compared across any GMAT administration. The verbal and quantitative scores measure different constructs and are not comparable to each other. Total GMAT scores range from 200 to 800.
The analytical writing score is an average of the ratings given to both writing tasks. Each response is given two independent ratings. Once both essays have been scored, the scores are averaged to provide an overall score. These average scores can range from 0 to 6 in half point intervals. Writing scores are computed separately from the scores for the multiple-choice sections of the test and have no effect on the verbal, quantitative, or total scores.
VALIDITY OF SCORES: 5 YEARS
The Fulfright Program aims to bring a little more knowledge, a little more reason, and a little more compassion into world affairs and thereby to increase the chance that nations will learn at last to live in peace and friendship.
