Because of the closure of GMAT test centers throughout the world for ongoing corona pandemic, GMAC, the board that conducts GMAT, has announced that professionals and students who plan to take admission in top B-schools can avail the GMAT online test from their homes from April 20, 2020.
This new interim online GMAT test is designed to furnish students with an opportunity to meet upcoming B-school application deadlines.
The new online GMAT test will have only 3 parts. Quantitative, Verbal and Integrated Reasoning sections (omitting the Analytical Writing Assessment section)
Total testing time is 2 hours and 37 mins (Its 30 mins less than the actual testing time)
Like GMAT administered at Test centers, this online test will also have the same type and number of questions in each section, with the same time for completion, and use the same scoring algorithm.
With critical security practices and protocols in place, the GMAT Online test maintains the rigorous testing standards matching those of GMAT tests delivered at testing centers.
Furthermore, GMAC is also striving to implement relevant online tools for test-takers with disabilities that meet specific eligibility criteria.
