## The SBC GMAT Files

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a computer-adaptive standardized test in mathematics and English that is used by graduate business school admissions committees. The exam is intended to measure verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills that the candidate has developed over a long period of time in his or her education and work.

Scores are valid for five years from the date the test taker sits for the exam. The maximum score that can be achieved on the exam is 800. Over the three years ending in March 2011, the average score was 540.4.

The GMAT exam is administered year-round and on demand at test centers around the world. If you’re interested in scheduling an appointment to take the exam, the first step is to register for the test at MBA.com.
