Does the GMAT vary depending on where you take the test? [#permalink] New post 12 Jun 2011, 17:09
Hi,

I have already taken up the GMAT(couple of years back) and have scored 660. I am an Indian IT professional with close to 5 years of experience. I am posted in South Korea and am planning to give GMAT an another shot.

I want to know if the questions or rather the difficulty of the questions vary depending on the geography? Will the questions get easier/tougher? :? :?

Hi rrobin85,

The difficulty of the questions varies based on your own abilities to answer them correctly. The better you do on the test, the harder it gets. No matter where you take the test, the question bank is the same and, therefore, geographic location does not have an impact on the difficulty of the questions.

Yes you may feel that way because the question bank varies a lot plainly due to the sheer number of questions they have at their disposal. But I suppose it is not, because their procedures are highly controlled and standardized, and probably audited. I seriously doubt there is any chance of location bias, even if there is its purely to PLAY with your head rather than a actual one.
