GMAT is a prerequisite for graduate management courses abroad. 2,400 institutions in 110 countries, including India, accept GMAT scores. 

 

If you’re also planning to study for an MBA abroad and want to appear on the GMAT in 2024, this blog is for you. On this page, you will find the city-wise GMAT exam dates in India for 2024. 

What is the GMAT exam?

GMAT, short for the Graduate Management Admission Test, is a standardized test required to pursue a graduate program in management abroad. Many Indian business schools also accept GMAT scores for admission. 

 

The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) is the conducting authority of the exam. This 3 hours and 7 minutes long test comprises 4 parts: 

 

  1. Quantitative Reasoning (QR) 
  2. Verbal Reasoning (VR)
  3. Integrated Reasoning (IR)
  4. Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA)

 

Here’s a clear breakdown of the scoring system:

 

  • Main GMAT Score (200-800): This score combines your performance in the Quantitative and Verbal sections. Most test-takers score between 400 and 600.

 

  • Section Scores: The GMAT has separate scores for Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) and Integrated Reasoning (IR). These do not impact your main score but are important individually:

 

  • AWA: Scored on a scale of 0-6.
  • IR: Scored on a scale of 1-8.

 

  • Percentile Rankings: Your main score also comes with a percentile ranking, indicating how you performed relative to other test-takers. For example, a score of 700 is around the 89th percentile.

 

To increase your chances of getting into Ivy League or top business schools, aim for a score between 690 and 700.
