Using GMAT for MBA Admissions 2024

Most importantly, the GMAT score is only valid for 5 years. And because application dates for various colleges vary, it is best to check for the specific universities you are applying to and then schedule your exam.

 

A high GMAT score will give a candidate an advantage in their application; nevertheless, the GMAT is not the only requirement for admission to a top MBA programme. B-Schools seek a balanced profile that includes professional experience, leadership capabilities, managerial ability, etc. In addition to a GMAT score, B-Schools demand other application documents such as a statement of purpose, letters of recommendation, entrance essays, and so on. As a result, an MBA candidate must concentrate on all aspects of his or her application.
