    GMAT is a standardized test and like all standardized tests, it tests how well you take the test. Graduate Management Admission Test or GMAT is a computer adaptive test or CAT, where the syllabus assesses certain analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in written English for use in admission to a graduate management program, such as an MBA program of various B-schools in the world. It requires knowledge of certain specific grammar and knowledge of certain specific algebra, geometry, and arithmetic. The GMAT is a top grade test which not only assesses analytical writing and problem-solving abilities, but also addresses data sufficiency, logic, and critical reasoning skills which beliefs to be necessary to real-world business and management success. One can appear the test up to five times a year but not more than 8 times in total. Attempts must be at least 16 days apart.

    The GMAT exam consists of four sections:

    As per the GMAC; globally 9 out of 10 MBA enrolments are made through GMAT Score. Further, 2,300 + schools accept GMAT Scores for giving admission. Also, there are 650 testing centers in 114 countries that administer the GMAT Exam. GMAT scores play an important role in MBA admissions in Top Management School. To get admission in a top-ranking Business school in India and abroad, the entry criteria is much tougher. Here, the average GMAT scores play an important role in the selection in the top MBA programs. It is the main parameter than any other parameter in the overall MBA application.

    GMAT Cut-Off

    Most of the business institutions in India and abroad accept the qualifying marks of GMAT. GMAT Cut-Off is the minimum mark that candidates must score in order to take admission in top-ranked B-Schools. Every participating institution has set a level of minimum marks that must be scored by the candidates coming for admission.

    The cut-off for GMAT is released by various institutions after the declaration of the GMAT SCORES. The admission process will include the selection process other than the GMAT score, past academic records along with professional qualification. Candidates’ performance in the interview, MBA Essays, and the letter of recommendation also affect the scope of admission in a reputed B-School of India or abroad. Therefore, candidates appearing for GMAT are advised to work hard for it as the level of competition is very high. Candidates can plan their GMAT preparation and start preparing for this tough competitive examination.

    Factors Determining GMAT Cut-Off for an institution

    The usual bracket of Institutional Cut-Off ranges above 650 for both national and international colleges. The cut-off marks determined by an institution are based on various factors. These factors are calculated and sum up to finalize the cut-off marks for the candidates. Keeping these determining factors in mind candidates must strive harder to crack the examination so that they may get enlisted in the cut-off list. Following are the factors determining GMAT Cut-Off:

    • Total number of candidates appearing for GMAT
    • Total number of seats available
    • The difficulty level of the examination
    • Total number of candidates qualifying the GMAT

    HOW THE GMAT SCORE is calculated

    GMAT provides two ways to arrive with the scores: Scaled Total and section-wise scores. But For Management colleges, these scores are of little value unless they can go through a comparative scale. By calculating the scores in percentile, GMAT is able to solve the problem.

    GMAT has four sections:- Analytical writings, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative and Verbal Tests. There will be no impact on the result of the Analytical writing/integrated reasoning section on the scaled score. The total score is measured from a scale ranging from 200 to 800. Each section is measured separately on a scale ranging from 0-60.

    So Total Score=200 to 800 and Quantitative Test Score is 0 -60, Verbal test is 0-60.

    To evaluate the percentile, GMAC has taken the last three years' test data of GMAT. The validity of GMAT data is for 5 years, so when there is a more competitive group in one year than percentile change can happen.

    For example, one took the GMAT in 2013. The score is valid for 2018. Now let us assume that in 2017 GMAT test taker was exceptional with the average test taker scoring 30 above the all-time average. The percentile score will change with the result of the 2017 test data. If the candidate applies for 2017-2018, the GMAT percentile data will have an impact on the MBA admission.

    Gmat Score Range

    Here are the minimum and maximum score range of each section, along with a mean average:

    SectionScore RangeMean Scores*
    Analytical Writing Assessment0-64.5
    Integrated Reasoning1-84
    Verbal0-6027
    Quantitative0-6038
