According to the MBA.com website, the GMAT Online exam will be available from April 20, 2020 through June 15, 2020. This online and remotely-proctored exam has been developed to assist candidates working to meet upcoming application deadlines for fall 2020. Registration for the GMAT Online began on April 14, 2020.
Due to the worldwide disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, b-schools have been forced to extend MBA application deadlines. Many schools are relaxing their admissions requirements, which may allow a candidate to attend a program they previously thought was out of their reach.
What can I expect from the GMAT Online?
The GMAT Online will consist of the following sections, in this fixed order:
- Qualitative Reasoning – 31 questions/62 minutes
- Verbal Reasoning – 36 questions/65 minutes
- Integrated Reasoning – 12 questions/30 minutes
There is no Analytical Writing Assessment Section in the online exam. There will be the same type and number of questions, as well as section times as the tests given at testing centers.
The total time for the exam will be approximately 3 hours: 2 hours and 45 minutes for the test and 15 minutes to check in to the online proctored system. There is one optional 5-minute break prior to the IR section.
The same scoring algorithm and score scale will be used for the Section Scores and Total Score as test center-based exams.
Your GMAT Online exam fee offers you 2 opportunities to send your scores to programs:
- During exam registration, you can choose up to 5 programs to send your scores to.
- After you have received your official score via email.
There is no chance to view your unofficial score at the end of the exam.
Your score will be sent to you within 7 business days of completing your exam.
