The Key Differences between GRE and GMAT

Recommended Posts

GMAT stands for Graduate Management Admission Test, which is used to measure a candidate’s ability for certain analytical, writing, verbal, quantitative, and reading skills in English which are required for an admission in a graduate management program such as MBA and it is presented in a Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) format. The students are tested based on their knowledge of specific grammar and algebra, geometry, and arithmetic. The owner of GMAT exams is the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). GMAC maintains that a student appearing for a GMAT exam is assessed for problem-solving skills, analytical writing, data sufficiency, logic, and critical reasoning skills that are crucial for achieving real-world business and management success. Indian students can acquire the training required from GMAT institutes in Bangalore so that they can get into their dream management university.

There are more than 2300 graduate business schools that offer 7000 programs and accept GMAT as a deciding factor for admission. GMAT is used for admission in MBA, Master of Accountancy, Master of Finance and other programs. Students that have applied for GMAT or GRE are treated as equals during their admission process in graduate business schools. However, there are certain differences between GRE and GMAT tests which must be carefully addressed by students before they opt for the exams.

1.                School preference -
It has been observed that there are some business schools that have a strong preference for GMAT and MBA aspirants must detect if these business schools are a part of their ‘dream-schools’ list. There are some institutes such as the Stanford Graduate School of Business that assigns equal weight to GRE and GMAT.
Students in India can opt for online GMAT training so that they can get into business schools of their choice. Most universities encourage students to take up an exam that is best-suited to highlight their abilities in a graduate management degree program.

2.                Skills in Mathematics -
It has been observed by experts that the quantitative reasoning questions in GMAT are more difficult than those in GRE. This can be used by students who are good at mathematics to their advantage so that they can demonstrate those skills. It is possible that a business program that ascertains maths skills may value a GMAT score than a GRE score. It is seen that those who prefer logic over geometry can opt for GMAT because GMAT contains more logical questions than GRE.

3.                Language skills -
GRE has more arduous words and sentences than GMAT. Students that are non-native English speakers can have a tough time in GRE. GRE sets a higher bar for vocabulary than GMAT, and this can be used by students as a deciding factor between the two tests.

Career goals -
Management consulting firms and investment banking firms that hire MBA applicants require a copy of their GMAT scores. This should be kept in mind while selecting the test. It is observed that those students that were admitted to business schools on the basis of their GRE score had to take up GMAT in order to apply for full-time consulting jobs.
