Preparing for the GMAT
Applying to business school or graduate school may be one of the most important decisions - and investments - you make in your life. To get into your top choice school, you need to score as highly as possible on the GMAT.
The GMAT is a competitive test with high stakes. You should definitely prepare thoroughly – it is not enough to turn up on test day and hope for the best! It is also not enough for the vast majority of people to simply skim a GMAT book over a weekend.
The MBA admissions process is very competitive
The average acceptance rate at the leading business schools is between 5% and 19%. A high GMAT score is one way to stand out from the crowd and increase your chances of acceptance. With the average score at top U.S. schools above 700 (or the 90th percentile), you must perform extremely well on the test in order to remain competitive and submit a winning application.
The GMAT is still under your control - unlike other aspects!
Of all the components of your MBA applications, many will already be set in stone - e.g. your undergraduate scores, work history, etc. The GMAT, on the other hand, is one of the few admissions factors that you can STILL CHANGE at this point - so be sure to spend sufficient time and effort in maximising the potential gains of this vital aspect of your application.
The GMAT is probably different from any other exam you've taken: it is a computer adaptive exam and includes unique question types such as Data Sufficiency. Preparation and practice are crucial for this unfamiliar test format, and you will need to develop your skills in both content and critical thinking in order to perform well under pressure.
More Studying = Higher Score!
It's no surprise that the more effort you put into something the better the results. That is no different with the GMAT. The most successful business school candidates allowed 3-6 months to prepare for the GMAT, and test takers who reported studying for 90+ hours yielded scores of 700 or higher*.

What is the best way to prepare for the GMAT?
Test preparation depends on the individual. The best way for you to prepare depends on many factors: your familiarity with standardised tests, your level of English and grammar knowledge, your work schedule, family commitments, the amount of time you can devote to studying, etc.
At Kaplan, we're here to make test preparation as straightforward and effective as possible. We offer various ways to prepare for the GMAT: attend one of our comprehensive GMAT courses - in London, Live Online or Self-Paced, or consider GMAT Private Tutoring for a completely tailored approach.
