I am an Indian and I did all my schooling and engineering from India. I am presently working in U.K and wish to take GMAT in the near future.

I want to know whether GMAT exam is dependant on the country from which it is taken?

If that is the case, I am sure the Verbal section of GMAT is going to be much tougher when taken from UK (as English is the native language of this country) as compared to the Verbal section of the GMAT taken from India.

Please help. A quick reply will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Rajat

Ok, thanks Godspeed! :)

My first (and I wish the last) GMAT attempt would be from the west. Fingers crossed.

It's a standardized test, so I would be very surprised if there were differences!

I might be wrong but I think that those standardized tests are somewhat person-adapted. This might sound off-topic, but when I took TOEFL in US couple of months ago, I found it extremely difficult. I'm in US for 4 years now, before that I worked for one of UN agencies where all communication was in English, my husband is American and he is told to correct me every time I make a mistake. I mean, I think I know English very well, but I found TOEFL extremely complex. I scored high (96%), but I have no idea how some 17-18-year-old high-school kid from lets say China or Europe can do well on it. Therefore, I think before "spitting" out the test computer takes a quick look whether you are applying for a grad or undergrad, or are you in US, UK or elsewhere. So I think GMAT also takes a peak at your info. Once again, I might be wrong, but my experience with TOEFL makes me think that standardized exams might slightly differ depending on the takers background and location.
