The Graduate Management Admission Test is changing. The GMAT will become a shorter test in which some "non-essential items" will be eliminated with the addition of "data insights" along with the quantitative and verbal reasoning parts. The TOI report states that the revisions will include the elimination of the "analytical writing assessment" portion and the addition of "data insights.”
The GMAT exam is a computer adaptive test that focuses on reading, writing, speaking, and analytical skills in written English. The exam serves as a barometer for acceptance into the best business schools in the world. The GMAT scores are accepted for admission to business education at various levels by over 7,700 programmes in 2,400 institutions and colleges. GMAT scores are accepted by more than 170 schools and institutions in India to assess eligibility.
Joy Jones, Chief Executive Officer, GMAC, further stated that questions on data insights would be based on some of our earlier writing on integrated reasoning and data sufficiency. He said that each section of the exam will be made more concise while maintaining the integrity of the performance that business schools expect from the candidates.
