What is GMAT?

GMAT Prep Course :
For management studies in the world’s popular universities, a core requirement is The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). The GMAT prepares students for studying in these world-class universities by accessing each student’s potential and capability to pursue management education at global management schools. The GMAT score demonstrates the academic potential for success by measuring higher-order analytical skills encompassing several types of reasoning, preparing students to think critically and logically within the stipulated time. The GMAT is not an IQ test, nor is it a test of business knowledge, English vocabulary, or advanced computational skills, as these are expected to be developed during university education. The GMAT is rather meant to assess skills never explored during school or undergraduate education, but which are necessary in the context of the working world. The GMAT scores are accepted by more than 5,000 management institutions across the world!!
