Kaplan Test Prep
A common query for prospective MBA students involves the purpose of the GMAT. According to the Graduate Management Admission Council, the GMAT is a selection tool created to help admissions committees decide who to admit based on whether or not they will be able to handle the academic load. The GMAT helps source the data to predict academic success. Still, despite this fact, it’s validity often remains a sticking point in the minds of many test takers. Even if a selection tool is shown to be a valid predictor of performance, that doesn’t necessarily mean the subject will recognize that validity. The problem is that if the subject perceives the measure as invalid, it can impact their performance. Never let the question “Why do I have to take the GMAT?” derail preparation. It is a challenging test and when one is submerged and struggling under its rough and murky waters, it is very hard to see the point. The simple truth is that the GMAT is necessary to get an MBA. Stop asking “Why do I have to?” and start asking “How do I nail it?”
