GMAT Training and Preparation


GMAT stands for Graduate Management Admission Test. It is a standardized aptitude test with a pre-defined syllabus and is required for admission to many of the world's leading Business Schools.

The GMAT score is generally accepted as one of the most valid and reliable testing schemes in graduate business schools. The exam is designed to measure the skills students require to succeed in the challenging curriculum. Being a computer-adaptive exam, it is one that assesses the student's verbal, quantitative and analytical writing skills rather than a handwritten test. Being computer-based, the GMAT exam can determine the student's ability by selecting questions based on previous answers. As the student progresses with the exam, the difficulty of questions alters in accordance with the number of correct or incorrect answers given.

It is essential to undergo proper GMAT coaching before you appear for the test. Eloquence Communication offers quality GMAT coaching that ensures students get the best possible preparation. Here are just a few of the reasons why students should choose to prepare for their GMAT with us:

• Vast experience in providing quality test preparation programmes for some of the most common standardized tests worldwide having helped several thousand students every year to successfully achieve their desired test scores.

• Experienced, qualified and professional faculty drawn from some of the most elite institutions in India, all of whom have undergone a rigorous training schedule and are subject to a regular and thorough evaluation process to ensure that their subject knowledge and teaching practices continue to be amongst the best in the industry.

• Flexible and convenient schedules that suit students' needs and requirements with small batch sizes that allow personalized attention to ensure that every individual establishes realistic goals for score improvement, understands the key test concepts and is given comprehensive guidance on effective test taking strategies.

Two highly powerful preparation methods that we adopt are:

• Critical Thinking Strategies: Realising that standardised tests rely on more than just the content, we constantly update and customize our study and reference material, along with practice test papers, to ensure that we address student's specific areas of concern. In addition, the faculty regularly arranges additional workshops or extra-help sessions on particular topics in which the student has underperformed during the mock test.

• Essential Practice: Our collection of practice tests, other than basic content and timed drills, simulate the GMAT. The realistic practice and extensive training, as well as test day tips and exam strategies provided by our expert instructors, enhance the student's confidence in facing the actual exam.

The GMAT consists of four sections:

1. AWA (Analytical Writing Assessment)

2. Integrated Reasoning

3. Quantitative Reasoning

4. Verbal Reasoning

The GMAT can be taken in 94 countries across the world. Appointments are available six days a week all year round. Students can appear for the GMAT once every 16 days and a maximum of five times in one calendar year with scores being valid for up to five years. If a student is fortunate enough to score a perfect 800 in the GMAT he/she cannot take the GMAT again for five years (until after their score expires).

10 key insights into the GMAT:

1. As the student progresses with the exam, the difficulty of questions alters in accordance with the number of correct or incorrect answers given.

2. The GMAT scores rely on the number of questions answered correctly and the difficulty level of those questions.

3. The first question in the multiple-choice section has an 'average level'. If a student answers it correctly, the subsequent ones become more difficult. On the contrary, if the question is answered incorrectly, subsequent questions will become easier. The trend will follow until a question is answered correctly.

4. The student cannot skip or return to a previous question, or change an answer.

5. The student must finish the entire section and a strong penalty is imposed for leaving the test incomplete.

6. The first few questions have a bigger impact on the score range than the last few.

7. The performance in one section is isolated from the other.

8. There are approximately 20 experimental questions in the test.

9. Verbal, Quantitative, Integrated Reasoning and Total scores will appear immediately after taking the test.

10. The official report is received within two weeks (with essay grades).
