GMAT gets 300 more questions
Globally, lakhs of students take GMAT every year for admission to over 1,900 B-schools across the world including a few management schools in India. Nearly 20,000 students take the exam in India.
In the new format, in the sentence-correction section, there is an increased emphasis on pronoun and modifier rules, while there is reduced focus on comparisons and idioms-related questions. Similarly, in the reading comprehension questions, the Graduate Management Admission Council - the global authority to prepare the test papers - has created a balance between short and long passages. Two biology passages have been replaced with one social science passage and one business-related passage.
While the number of inference questions has increased significantly, general and specific questions have remained the same. "Roman numeral questions have been removed, indicating GMAT may move away from these. The GMAC spends millions of dollars on research to ensure that only the best students get into these B-schools and that they are well-rounded, not just bookish or just good in language," said Rashmi Gowda, GMAT analyst and head of CSquare Learnings, a leading GMAT prep institute.
In the critical reasoning section, 50 old questions have been replaced with 50 new ones. There has been a decrease of 19 questions in the problem-solving section.
