The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) today announced trimming of GMAT exam time by 30 minutes to 3.5 hours beginning April 16 worldwide.
In a statement, GMAC said, the quality of the exam remains unchanged in terms of reliability, validity, security and integrity.
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) scores before and after this change will be the same and comparable across time.
The GMAT exam is required for admissions in business schools and nine out of 10 new MBA enrollments globally are made using a GMAT score.
The GMAC is a global non-profit association of 223 graduate business schools. It owns and administers the GMAT exam, used by more than 7,000 graduate programs worldwide.
