The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) can be the milestone for your career. GMAT has been the test of choice of the leading business institutes across the globe. The GMAT score is recognized by more than 5,400 graduate programs of universities and colleges worldwide, including Australia that is the hub for MBA education past many years. A good score in the GMAT suggests that you have that factor, which is required to become a business leader.


What is GMAT?

Do not mistake GMAT for other general knowledge tests. GMAT is a comprehensive computerized test, based on the essay and multiple-choice questions formats. This tests your logical thinking and intellectual skills. The assessment is done in two broad areas, which is Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning. The Mathematics section will include subjects like problem solving, Algebra and Geometry. Verbal Reasoning includes comprehension, critical reasoning and sentence correction.

Why Australia!

Australia is among the most popular destinations for business education not just because it offers a wide range of business courses, but also because the level of support from students is high and there is world-wide acceptance of the degrees from the Australian universities and colleges. The students have the option to choose the course of interest in their location of interest as per the accreditation of the institutes.

Australia has almost 40 public and Catholic universities offering business education. Here the top ranking B schools in Australia to complete for:

  1. Melbourne Business School, University of Melbourne
  2. Australian Graduate School of Management
  3. Macquarie Graduate School of Management
  4. Faculty of Business – Bond University
  5. Faculty of Business – Queensland University of Technology

Preparing for GMAT

Do not have this notion that if you had a good command over Math and English during your school days then you will be able to remember those even when you are an adult! These subjects require you to keep practicing and keep your skills brushing up. Besides, you also need to challenge your problem solving capabilities and solve data sufficiency. If you dream of studying MBA from Melbourne Business School, you must have a score of at least 600-700. No big score, no scholarship!

Plan Early

Give yourself the freedom to appear for the exam twice if required. It is always appreciated if you get through in the first round itself, but if not, do not lose heart and be ready for reappearing in the exam. Once you attempt for the test, have patience for at least 31 days to go for reattempting it. It is a good idea to plan everything as soon as you see the advertisement for the GMAT. There are a number of students who do not plan on time and fight with the lack of time later.

Start studying

Avoid delaying things for future. The experts know what is best for you; hence, they always suggest downloading the software that is available from the GMAT website, free of cost! This way, you will know about the software you will be working with during the exam. The software not only offers practice tests, but also has review sections. Make use of the available resources.

Apply early

Waste no time in applying to Australian universities. The universities conduct the admission procedure one year before the commencement of the classes; hence, it is advisable to be enrolled to the course of interest as soon as possible. To get application forms, you can either:

  • Request the application forms via email from the universities website
  • Request Application Forms via Air Mail
  • Download from the University Website
