Managed by the GMAC (Graduate Management Admission Council) Graduate Management Aptitude Test, a computer adaptive test, is required for an admission into an MBA Program, PhD and other management related programs abroad, and majority of the executive MBA programs (programs that require some work experience) in India. The GMAT score is generally valid for 5 years but a fresh score demand after every 3 years can be insisted by premier colleges.
Important Dates for GMAT 2018
The GMAT is available year-round and on demand, which offers test takers greater flexibility in scheduling. One can also re-schedule their exam date before 7 calendar days to the test. It is important to note that the GMAT can only be given once in a month and not more than 5 times in a year and if multiple tests are taken, B-schools take the best of the scores of all tests taken in the last 5 years. The advantage of taking a GMAT is that scores can be cancelled before they are viewed, if a candidate thinks he did not have a great exam.
The GMAT consists of four main sections – Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative and Verbal.
1. AWA– 1 topic on analysis of argument which is to be completed in 30 minutes.
2. Integrated Reasoning – 12 questions from multi-source reasoning, graphical interpretation, two-part analysis and table analysis to be completed in 30 minutes.
3. Quantitative – 31 questions on data sufficiency and problem-solving to be completed in 62 minutes.
4. Verbal – 36 questions on reading comprehension, sentence correction and critical reasoning to be completed in 65 minutes.
The total time for the examination is 3 hours 7 minutes plus optional breaks of 8 minutes before the third and fourth sections, and some initial time for biometric credentials verification. So the candidate should be prepared for a three and a half hour appointment.

An average academic career, 7 years in Merchant Navy, my minimum expectation from Endeavor was that I would be given the best I deserved. So crucial was Endeavor to my MBA aspirations that I made it to Kellogg, Michigan Ross and TAMU for Fall 2014 with handsome scholarships. These guys rock!
Ravi ManiarGMAT Score 740/800
Due to my gruelling work schedule, my greatest concern was, how will I manage GMAT® prep without compromising my work commitments. The planning at Endeavor, right from prep to applications is the biggest reason I have admits from ISB, Boston and UNC.
Varun SinhaGMAT Score 740/800
When I first came to Endeavor and asked if I could make it to ISB with just above 2 years of experience, their response convinced me this was the right place. I am one of the youngest in ISB PGP 2014, only because through each step, right from GMAT® to interview, Endeavor was right there.

A high score on GMAT® typically requires extremely good Verbal Skills. And the verbal preparation at Endeavor was both, comprehensive and in-depth. I scored above expectations, thanks to a much better verbal reasoning score.
Soham BadhekaGMAT Score 770/800
Coming from an NIT, the only difficulty for me would have been the adaptive nature of the test. But thorough practice at Endeavor, with diligent analysis, helped me play to my strengths and score to my best level on the GMAT®.
