KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 2 (Bernama) -- Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) confirmed that GMAT Focus Edition has become the only version of the GMAT exam available to prospective test takers worldwide, after three months of successful delivery of the latest edition.
“We have been reassured and encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive feedback we have received from many who have taken the latest edition of GMAT and gained newfound confidence to pursue advanced business education.
“We are confident that business schools will benefit from the uptick of demonstrated interest and commitment from a more expansive and inclusive global applicant pool,” said GMAC Chief Executive Officer, Joy Jones in a statement.
GMAC revealed the GMAT Focus Edition after extensive research efforts involving hundreds of school professionals and in-depth concept testing with thousands of prospective students globally.
The test was revamped last year with a more efficient test taking experience and flexible new features to better support candidates on their journey of business education and career.
With just three 45-minute sections, including the newly developed Data Insights section, it is nearly one hour shorter than the previous version of the GMAT and requires less content to prepare, while the previous version of the GMAT exam is no longer available, its scores continue to be valid for five years.
A global association representing leading business schools, GMAC delivered the updated version of the most widely used business school exam last fall in parallel with the existing GMAT to facilitate candidates’ in-progress preparation and applications for business school.
First launched seven decades ago, the GMAT has been the gold standard by continuously evolving to ensure it maintains its psychometric rigour while remaining a highly relevant indicator of candidate preparedness for graduate business programmes.
