The GMAT exam is a computer-based adaptive test that assesses candidates' analytical, quantitative, verbal, and reading writing in standard written English. This test is taken for admission to a graduate program in management such as MBA and Master of Finance related courses at top business schools around the world. Since April 16, 2018, the Graduate Management Admission Council has shortened the GMAT exam by 30 minutes. Now the exam is 3 hours and 30 minutes, including instructions and breaks.
