GMAT Information

 

Many advanced degrees require a GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) or a GRE (Graduate Record Exam) for admission consideration. 

These standardized assessments help assess the qualifications of applicants for advanced study; schools use the test as a predictor of academic performance in graduate level programs.  Scores are valid for five years.
