GMAT vs GRE
GMAT vs GRE Scores for MBA Programs
Admissions trends are showing that business schools are looking for applicants with more than just a business background, and that means that the GMAT is not the only test in the game anymore. Since the GMAT and the GRE are completely different tests, comparing scores on the two is like comparing apples to oranges. ETS (the folks who administer the GRE) and GMAC (the folks who administer the GMAT) both use comparison tools to put student s scores into perspective, but many MBA programs use the ETS comparison tool as a benchmark. To get the most out of your score and your application, you should research your chosen schools to see what score ranges they require for admission. Use our business school search to research the MBA programs on your list.
Is one test easier?
In general, the GMAT suits those who have strong quantitative and analytical skills, who also excel at interpreting data presented in charts, tables, and text to solve complex problems. The GRE math section tends to be more straightforward and, unlike the GMAT, includes a calculator for all quantitative problems. Strong editors may gravitate to the GMAT s verbal section while test-takers with strong vocabularies may prefer the GRE. Both tests have their oddball question types Quantitative Comparison on the GRE and Data Sufficiency on the GMAT that will take some prep to get used to.
