GMAT or Graduate Management Admission Test is a skill and performance-based test that is taken by those aspiring to study in the top B schools. GMAT scores are not just accepted in the leading business schools in India, but also for MS and MBA courses offered overseas. Every year, approximately 3 lakh students take up the GMAT exam for admission to 7,000 programs in around 2300 business schools around the world. The staggering numbers are just an indicator of the level of competition that students have to face in order to clear this competitive exam and get admission in a business school of their choice.

The question paper pattern of the GMAT exam includes four sections – analytical writing, integrated reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and verbal reasoning. This three and a half hour exam evaluates a candidate’s capabilities in critical thinking, communication, data analytics, quantitative reasoning and verbal reasoning.

The next section will elaborate on how our GMAT prep tests can help enhance the students’ performance.

GMAT Prep Tests to Enhance Student Performance

Preparing for a GMAT examination is no easy deal. But one thing that successful students know is that the key to performing well in this competitive exam doesn’t depend on just learning the core concepts, but also in knowing how to take up the test. Educational and training institutes can help students prepare for the GMAT exam by giving them mock tests. MeritTrac GMAT prep software can help design and deploy GMAT mock tests.

GMAT Prep or mock tests are designed just like the competitive exam so that students will have a better idea of what to expect when they take up the exam. Also, these preparatory tests will help students build the right strategy to take up the exam. By analysing their performance in the mock tests, students can find their strengths and weakness and prepare for the GMAT exam accordingly.

One of the biggest challenges of taking up the competitive exam is making the optimum use of the examination time. In most cases, students tend to linger over certain questions and sections, trying to get it right so that they lose a lot of time over it. Then, they will rush through the remaining sections of the exam. This haphazard manner of attending the exam will not give the expected results. When aspirants take up multiple mock tests, they will have an idea of how much time to allocate for each section of the question paper. It will allow them to expertly manage their time when they take up the competitive exam.

Students can be encouraged to take up prep tests once they have completed a first-level of learning of all the topics and concepts that will be covered in the GMAT exam. With each prep test, the students take up; they can identify their learning gaps and fine-tune their exam preparation.
