The Graduate Management Admissions Council or GMAC (conducting body of the management entrance exam) has introduced changes in the conduction of the Graduate Management Admission Test, popularly known as GMAT, so that it becomes more student friendly.
List of changes introduced by GMAC and how they are helpful:
- Cancelled scores of GMAT can be restored within a 60-day window.
- Candidates can get to know the mistakes they have committed by checking the Enhanced Score Report (ESR).
- ESR will depict the entire breakup of each section of GMAT, ensuring complete insights for the student to comprehend as to what went wrong.
- ESR insights will help candidates evaluate their weaknesses so that they can prepare well if they plan to give it another shot.
Earlier, despite being eligible for admission in a particular university, the candidates had to re-appear for the test and pay the fees all over again. A gap of 30 days was also required for the student to appear for GMAT again. Not only this, if the student re-appeared for the test, the final report that is generated mentioned the same. This led to a negative impression among individual B-school admission bodies, thereby affecting the candidature of the applicant.
Now the students can retake the test without worrying about the negative impact it will have on the administrator of MBA applications, leaving them more confident.
GMAT is a ticket to admissions to premier business schools (B-schools) not only in India but also abroad. One of the prerequisites for MBA admissions is a good GMAT score that can help an aspirant bag a seat in the top b-schools worldwide.
