The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a computer adaptive test (CAT) designed to assess analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in written English for admission to a graduate management program, such as an MBA program. It necessitates knowledge of specific grammar as well as knowledge of specific algebra, geometry, and arithmetic. The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), the test's owner, claims that the GMAT assesses analytical writing and problem-solving abilities while also addressing data sufficiency, logic, and critical reasoning skills that it believes are critical to real-world business and management success. It is permitted to take it up to five times per year, but no more than eight times in total. At least 16 days must pass between attempts.
