GMAT volume edged higher during the first ten months of 2005 when compared with the same period in 2004. Even domestic volume, which has been down slightly when compared to last year, moved ever so slightly into positive territory. Comparing the first ten months of 2004 to the first 10 months of 2005:
- GMAT volume increased 3.02% internationally.
- Outside the US, testing volume increased 9.33%.
- Inside the US, testing volume inched up 0.16%.
These numbers reveal a trend in GMAT volume, which hit bottom last year. Since GMAT volume is a strong indicator of application volume, you can also see where application numbers are going in the future: up.
