Why the GMAT

There are a few reasons why the GMAT is an important part of the admission process:

  • The GMAT exam helps business schools assess candidates fairly and predicts their success in the classroom.
  • The exam is a scientifically-proven and valid predictor of your academic performance, which means the better you do on the GMAT, the better you should do on your business management coursework.

Succeeding on the GMAT provides you with the confidence that you have the right skills and aptitude to succeed in your programme, and more importantly, that your peers studying alongside you can perform at a standard equal to your own.
