The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC)
WHAT'S ON THE GMAT?
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) is designed to help graduate schools of business assess the qualifications of applicants for advanced study in business and management.
GMAT scores are used by nearly 2,400+ graduate management schools for 7700+ programs across 110+ countries throughout the world. The idea is to have a test that measures skills acquired in (A) Verbal Reasoning, (B) Quantitative Ability, and (C) Data Insights over a period of time.

Overview of the Verbal Reasoning Measure
There are two types of questions in the Verbal Section: Reading Comprehension and Critical Reasoning. Reading Comprehension and Critical Reasoning questions have sub-types that are designed to test specific verbal skills.
Measures your ability to understand words and statements, understand logical relationships between significant points, draw inferences, and follow the development of quantitative concepts. Specifically, the following reading skills will be tested: main idea, supporting idea, inference, application, logical structure, and style.
Each Reading Comprehension passage comes with questions that ask you to interpret material, draw inferences or apply to a further context. The passages discuss topics including social sciences and humanities, physical and biological sciences, or a business-related field.
Measures your ability to make arguments, evaluate arguments, and formulate or evaluate a plan of action.
Critical Reasoning questions are based on a short reading passage, usually fewer than 100 words. Typically, the short text comes with a question that asks you which of the five answer options strengthens or weakens an argument, tells why the argument is flawed, or strongly supports or damages the argument.
Overview of the Quantitative Reasoning Measure
There is Problem Solving questions that come in this section which require some knowledge of arithmetic, elementary algebra and commonly known concepts of number system. Rest assured that the difficulty of the questions stems from the logic and analytical skills required, not the underlying math skills. Note that you cannot use a calculator while working on the Quantitative section.
Measures your ability to analyse a quantitative problem, recognize which data is relevant, and determine at what point there are enough data to solve the problem.
You will be given a problem that consists of a question and two statements. Using the data in the statements, plus your knowledge of math and everyday facts, you decide whether you have enough data in the statement to answer the question asked.
Overview of the Data Insights Measure
There are five types of questions in the Data Insights—Multi-Source Reasoning, Table Analysis, Graphics Interpretation, Two-Part Analysis, and Data Sufficiency. The questions involve both quantitative and verbal reasoning, either separately or in combination. There are two special features of this section: many questions require more than one response, and you will be able to use an online calculator with basic functions to answer the questions. Because the questions are designed to test your ability to integrate data to solve complex problems, you must answer all responses to a question correctly; no partial credit will be given.
