The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) made an official announcement regarding the set of changes being introduced in the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) 2015. The official website made the declaration on July 19.
The announcement laid down new rules under which the GMAT aspirants will now be permitted to appear for the re-test after a mere 16-day gap rather than the earlier 31-day retake period. This feature will let the students retake the test within a shorter time span to accommodate their schedules and study pattern in a much better way.
The candidates will also be allowed to view an ‘Official Score Report’ using their Date of Birth and will also not have their cancelled scores mentioned in the report cards. A feature called ‘Score Preview’ will allow the test-takers to preview the unofficial scores, before they can decide to report or cancel them.
All score cancellations that have been made before July 19 will not feature in score reports sent to institutes. However, score reports which have already been sent to institutes cannot be modified. For those candidates, a period of 60 days would be granted to reinstate a cancelled score.
The changes are being introduced as control and confidence building measures and are based on feedback from the candidates.
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) exam is a computer based evaluation that judges your verbal, mathematical, integrated reasoning, and analytical writing skills. The exam comprises of four sections which includes analytical writing assessment, integrated reasoning, quantitative and verbal.
