GMAT scores are used by nearly 1,300 graduate management programs throughout the world, and about 850 schools require GMAT scores from each applicant. At most business schools, GMAT scores count heavily in the admissions process, although their importance is somewhat tempered by the fact that many B-school applicants are older and already have a record of career accomplishment that may counterbalance non-stellar test scores.

The current GMAT test consists of nine separately timed sections, seven containing at least 15 multiple choice questions and two separately timed 30-minute writing tasks. The GMAT measures general verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills that are developed over a long period of time and are associated with success in the first year of study at graduate schools of management.
