About GMAT Score
Immediately at the end of the test, the examinee receives a score for the quantitative part separately, a score for the verbal part separately, and a combined score for both, which is the overall score of the GMAT (200-800). The scores for the writing assignment and the integrated reasoning are sent by email two to three weeks after the test, and they are not part of the overall grade of the GMAT test.
The tests are offered twice a week in Israel and cost $250. Candidates must wait 16 days between each exam.
Although the GMAT tests specific subjects, such as mathematics, logic, grammar and reasoning – its ultimate purpose is to test certain abilities required of a person in a managerial position. Through the test, candidate’s ability to make a managerial decision – to judge which information is relevant for making a decision, draw conclusions and express himself/herself in a concise and matter-of-fact manner is tested.
