The Graduate Management Admission Test is a Computer-Adaptive standardized test in mathematics and the English language for measuring aptitude to succeed academically in graduate business studies. Business schools commonly use the test as one of many selection criteria for admission into graduate business administration programs (e.g. MBA, Master of Accountancy, etc.) principally in the United States, but also in other English-speaking countries. It is delivered via computer at various locations around the world. In those international locations where an extensive network of computers has not yet been established, the GMAT is offered either at temporary computer-based testing centers on a limited schedule or as a paper-based test (given once or twice a year) at local testing centers
GRE or Graduate Record Examination: It stands for Graduate Record Examination but stands out as a golden chance for the students, to display their academic talent, in order to seek admissions in the business schools and universities offering graduate level courses. Thus, the universities of the western countries or the English speaking nations, such as the USA, Canada and the UK, lay emphasis on such exams, in order to gauge the academic capability of a candidate in regard to the English language as well as the subject of mathematics and hence the exam is typically meant for the students hailing from Asian countries. In other (and more specific) words, a concentrated attempt is made to record the level of aspiring students in the context of verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills, that the students are expected to have acquired over the period of their educational life, in their native countries.
SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test and Scholastic Assessment Test): Preparing and thinking of SAT will always be a major step forward towards realization of one’s glorious career. This is chiefly and rightly because of the fact that the reputed business schools and universities of towering acclaim rely upon the earnest SAT Examination, while considering the admission requests, to various graduate degree programs for the global students. Hence, in case of our country India, as we are also an emerging society and have been blessed with a promising economy, there is a need for a growing need for an acclaimed management talent that is at par with global standards. This is so as the flourishing companies in India long for well-updated management skills, in order to place management students in various key organizational positions.
