Evaluate your fitment For GMAT Focus Edition

Frequently asked questions

Why did GMAC create a new version of the GMAT?

The new GMAT Focus Edition was designed to be more test-taker-friendly, shorter in duration, and to focus on skills relevant to business school admissions. It also aims to compete with the GRE, which has been gaining popularity among MBA applicants.

Can test-takers change their answers in the GMAT Focus Edition?

Yes, test-takers can bookmark and change the answers to up to 3 questions per section in the GMAT Focus Edition. This is in contrast to the traditional GMAT where answers cannot be changed once submitted.

How is the scoring system different in the GMAT Focus Edition?

The GMAT Focus Edition introduces a new score scale ranging from 205 to 805, with each score ending in a 5, unlike the traditional GMAT’s 200-800 range. Additionally, all three sections (Quantitative, Verbal, and Data Insights) contribute equally to the total score in the GMAT Focus Edition.

What are the changes in question types in the GMAT Focus Edition?

The GMAT Focus Edition excludes Geometry and Sentence Correction questions, incorporates Data Sufficiency into the Data Insights section, and focuses on Critical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension in the Verbal Reasoning section.

How long is the GMAT Focus Edition compared to the traditional GMAT?

The GMAT Focus Edition is significantly shorter, with a total testing time of about 2 hours and 15 minutes, compared to the traditional GMAT which lasts a little over 3 hours.

Are old GMAT scores still valid with the introduction of the GMAT Focus Edition?

Yes, old GMAT scores will remain valid for 5 years, and the new GMAT Focus Edition will be gradually accepted by more business schools over time.

How does the GMAT Focus Edition's Data Insights section differ from the traditional GMAT's Integrated Reasoning section?

The Data Insights section in the GMAT Focus Edition focuses on analyzing data and interpreting charts, graphs, and tables, while the Integrated Reasoning section in the traditional GMAT includes questions that require multiple skills like quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning, and graphical interpretation.

Is the GMAT Focus Edition more challenging than the traditional GMAT?

The GMAT Focus Edition may be considered more challenging for some test-takers due to its focus on critical thinking and data analysis, while the traditional GMAT may be more challenging for others due to its longer duration and broader range of question types.

How often can I take the GMAT Focus Edition compared to the traditional GMAT?

Just like the traditional GMAT, the GMAT Focus Edition can be taken up to 5 times within 12 months, with a minimum of 16 days between each attempt.

Can I use the same GMAT prep materials for the GMAT Focus Edition as for the traditional GMAT?

While some GMAT prep materials may still be relevant for the GMAT Focus Edition, it’s recommended to use prep materials specifically designed for the GMAT Focus Edition to ensure familiarity with the new format and question types.

Do all business schools accept the GMAT Focus Edition?

While the GMAT Focus Edition is gradually being accepted by more business schools, it’s important to check with the specific schools you’re interested in to ensure they accept the new format.

How does the GMAT Focus Edition's test-taker-friendly format benefit students?

The GMAT Focus Edition’s shorter duration and flexibility to change answers may benefit students by reducing test anxiety and providing a more comfortable testing experience.

How does the GMAT Focus Edition's focus on data analysis align with the business school curriculum?

The GMAT Focus Edition’s emphasis on data analysis and critical thinking aligns with the skills needed for success in business school and in the workplace.

Can I still use the same practice tests for the GMAT Focus Edition as for the traditional GMAT?

While some practice tests may still be relevant for the GMAT Focus Edition, it’s recommended to use practice tests specifically designed for the new format to ensure familiarity with the new question types and scoring system.

How does the GMAT Focus Edition's new Data Insights section measure analytical skills?

The GMAT Focus Edition’s Data Insights section measures analytical skills by presenting test-takers with data in various formats and requiring them to interpret and analyze the information.

How does the GMAT Focus Edition's new format align with the changing needs of business schools?

The GMAT Focus Edition’s new format aligns with the changing needs of business schools by emphasizing critical thinking and data analysis skills, which are increasingly important in the business world.

How does the GMAT Focus Edition's new format affect the cost of the exam?

The GMAT Focus Edition’s new format does not significantly affect the cost of the exam, as the registration fee remains the same as for the traditional GMAT.

Is a mini GMAT available?

There is no test called the “mini GMAT” as such. However, some people do refer to the Executive Assessment (EA) as the “mini GMAT” since it is a shorter test compared to the GMAT. However, the EA scores can only be used by candidates who have several years of work experience and a great deal of seniority and want to apply to Executive MBA programs. This test cannot be used as a replacement for the GMAT Focus Edition Test.
