Hi AaravKapoor,

"There is a correlation between the GMAT and career success in the sense that high GMAT scores make acceptance to top business schools more likely, and graduates of these institutions generally fare the best in the job market. However, no direct link between career accomplishment and GMAT scores in and of themselves has been established."

"Doing well on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) helps you get into the best business schools—but surprisingly, the GMAT does not identify those individuals who will be the most successful managers after graduation. The GMAT is designed to help admissions offices choose those students who will do well in business school."
https://www.forbes.com/sites/ronaldyeap ... a0969f630a

You can choose GRE as an alternative. While the GMAT is designed specifically for business school applicants, the GRE is a test that can gain students admittance to graduate programs across almost all subjects, including the MBA.

Hope this helps

Hi AaravKapoor,

From your post, I assume that you are trying to decide between the GMAT and the GRE. Most Schools will accept either Score as part of the application process, but you should check to make sure that the Schools YOU plan to apply to actually accept both (as it would be unfortunate if you took the GRE only to discover later on that a School you were interested in would not accept that Score).

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take one FULL-LENGTH practice GMAT and/or GRE Test; you can take 2 practice GMATs for free at www.mba.com and two practice GREs for free at www.gre.org (both websites include some additional free practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that first test. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. Each Test takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take the Exam in one sitting. Once you have those scores (either Exam or both), you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

It's hard to say whether that statement is true exactly. There's some evidence that the GMAT somewhat predicts success. Researchers disagree on how strong that evidence is, and there are also some known problems with the GMAT as a predictor (for instance, this article says that women tend to have lower overall GMAT scores, but earn higher grades in MBA programs.)

That said, your school probably wants you to take some kind of test. Your options are probably either the GRE or the GMAT (although not all schools accept the GRE.) If your school accepts both tests, they probably think that they're both 'valid enough' - so you should take whichever one will make you look better.

Here are some thoughts on how to make that decision: https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/blog ... -gmat-gre/
