These improvements to the exam are made possible by a new partnership between the Graduate Management Admission Council(R) (GMAC(R))—owner of the GMAT—and a pair of companies renowned for delivering and developing top-notch academic assessments, Pearson VUE and ACT, Inc., respectively.

The integrity of the GMAT is critical to business schools,” said Bob Swieringa, dean of Cornell University´s Johnson Graduate School of Management and former chair of the GMAC board of directors. “It´s the best objective tool we have for predicting how well a student will perform. We want to know—and students want to know—that every applicant´s GMAT score truly reflects his or her ability to succeed.”

The GMAT itself is not changing. People will continue to tackle an individually tailored series of questions designed to gauge their math and verbal ability levels—and forecast their academic performance in business school. The standardized test builds on more than 50 years of research and experience to ensure that each person´s score is comparable to every other person´s score, regardless of their background.
