The GMAT is used to evaluate students applying specifically to business school.
The test emphasizes analytical writing, quantitative problem solving (math), and reading comprehension. It is administered via computer.
Arete’s process starts by diagnosing a student’s proficiency and preparedness. After assessing a student’s existing skill sets, we create an individualized approach and training schedule, ensuring optimal performance. We also work to quell test-related anxiety and teach strategies for navigating the computer-administered test format.
