B-school Gmat Evaluation

Gmat Evaluation

The first step in the evaluation process ignores all but your combined Quantitative/Verbal score—the one on the 200–800 scale. It’s this score, along with your GPA, that B-schools generally use to evaluate applicants during their initial screening. In other words, if your GPA and combined GMAT test score, considered together by whatever formula the school uses, falls below a certain level, the school rejects your application without considering other factors—such as your GMAT test Analytical Writing score, letters of recommendation, personal statement(s), and work experience.

Once you’re past the first cut, the school will take a closer look at your GMAT Analytical Writing score. If you’ve scored very high in GMAT Analytical Writing—perhaps 5 or 6—the admissions committee might rank you higher among its remaining applicants despite a relatively low GMAT Verbal score. (This is where the individual Verbal score can become a factor in the admissions process.) In reality, though, applicants with lower GMAT test Verbal scores typically score poorly on the Analytical Writing as well. What’s more, in this case an outstanding personal statement would not accomplish much toward redeeming your application, because too many applicants obtain help in writing their personal statements. In other words, the personal statement is not a reliable indicator of your writing abilityin gmat , or you verbal skills generally.

GMAT Test - Your Performance

Accompanying each of the four scaled scores on your official GMAT test score report will be a percentile score, or ranking, which indicates the percentage of test-takers scoring lower than you. For example, a percentile ranking of 65% in gmat test indicates that out of every 100 test-takers 65 scored lower than you, while 34 scored higher than you. Percentile rankings are based on the entire GMAT test -taking population during the three most recent years.

Percentile rankings are solely for your information—to help you assess your relative performance. They aren’t reported to the B-schools. Even if they were, the schools would ignore them, because each B-school is interested in ranking you among only its applicants, not among all GMAT test-takers.

The overall performance of the GMAT test population has been improving gradually over the last several years. The reason for this trend has to do with the fact that the MBA degree has become increasingly popular, and that as a result the B-schools have become increasingly selective in admitting new students. The end result is that a given GMAT score doesn’t get you as far as it used to in B-school admissions. Thus test-takers are taking the GMAT test score more seriously than ever before; they’re studying harder, and therefore scoring higher.

whats in a gmat??

So that’s what GMAT is all about.

Four and a half hours of testing in front of a monitor. I am sure many of you are used to this situation, but what if there are brain-scratching questions in front of you instead of the social networking sites like orkut where you talk endlessly . And every second counts.

GMAT Facts

A MAX GMAT SCORE: Maximum score is 800, which is calculated after the actual score is computed.
B MORE Harder is your answer, the more question become harder: The GMAT follows Computer Adaptive Testing ( CAT ). The better you do, the harder the questions will become till you make a mistake. But you get more credit for answering harder questions.
C IMMEDIATE RESULT: Since the GMAT is taken on the computer, the scores of each section (except AWA) are almost immediately available.
D TAKES TIME: The Analytical Writing Assessment section is scored separately on scale of 1-6, with 6 being the best. You get this score only after 2-3 wks.
E Practice makes man perfect in gmat: Tried and tested methods in standard books can significantly improve your GMAT scores

Each of the scores above is also accompanied by percentile rank. The percentile rank highlights what proportion of test takers scored lower than you on the test. The higher the percentile rank, the better you did. For example, if you received a percentile rank of 85, you did better than 85 percent of test takers.

When to take the test: You must first decide on an ideal date for your GMAT. In addition to personal convenience factors you must decide on a test date depending on the application deadlines of schools to which you wish to apply and the time you require to be fully prepared to score well on the GMAT test. It can take up to a month for official score reports to reach the business schools and most schools expect official reports to reach them before their application deadlines. Most applicants prefer to take the gmat test about two to three months before the school's application deadline so that the time between the test date and application deadlines is enough to complete the application forms, write essays and arrange original documents and recommendation letters for multiple schools. Based on this, decide on an ideal test date for you.

Registering for the gmat test: After deciding on a date at your end, you must immediately check for availability of testing space at a location of your choice. This can be checked online by going to the official site of Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). The seat availability can change quickly. If you are sure about the date and if it's available, you should register immediately. You would need to pay the required fee of US$250 by credit card.

If you are an international applicant and do not wish to pay by credit card, you can register at the Regional Registration Centers (RRC) of GMAC in your area for gmat.
