GMAT Exam Syllabus 2024

The GMAT exam assesses your quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning, and data analysis skills. Here's a breakdown of each section:

Quantitative Reasoning (QR) (21 Questions)

  • Measures your foundational knowledge of arithmetic and algebra and your ability to apply that knowledge to solve problems.
  • Emphasizes logic and analytical skills over complex math calculations.

Verbal Reasoning (VR) (23 Questions)

  • Measures your reading comprehension, reasoning, and critical thinking skills.
  • Composed of two question types: Reading Comprehension and Critical Reasoning

Data Insights (DI) (20 Questions)

  • Introduced in the GMAT Focus format, this section assesses your ability to analyze and interpret data in a business context.
  • Emphasizes digital and data literacy skills.
  • Uses various data formats such as graphs, tables, and text to test your ability to make informed decisions.

Guidelines to Follow When Appearing for GMAT Focus Edition

There are some things worth considering before you appear for the GMAT test. Go through the checklist and the security measures provided below:

Pre-Test Checklist

  1. Confirm your details about your appointment date, time, and location through your ‘my account’ page.’
  2. Refer to exam policies online to avoid any rule violation.
  3. Be familiar with the routes of your test center location in order to avoid last-minute delays.
  4. Plan to reach the test center 30 minutes before the appointment time. 
  5. Carry your valid government-issued ID proof.

Security Measures

Students appearing for GMAT must follow all the security measures to ensure a safe and secure test environment on test day. They must:

  1. Keep a proper identification proof or issued government id 
  2. Provide their palm vein scan 
  3. Provide their digital signature declaring that they abide to the terms and conditions
  4. Provide their digital photograph, which is also mandatory for the test. 

What is Palm Vein Scan?
The palm vein reader biometric technology is quick, simple, less intrusive, and more accurate than fingerprint technology. It ensures that each test taker has a single GMAT record, preventing people from taking the test for others. 

The palm vein reader is part of the ongoing effort by GMAC to maintain test integrity, deter people from taking the test for others, and ensure that the exam is a fair measure of everyone’s ability.

Tips and Strategies to Prepare for GMAT

Here are some tips and strategies to prepare for the GMAT exam, as recommended by experts and test prep providers:

  • Understand the GMAT syllabus and exam format: Familiarize yourself with the content tested in each section and the types of questions you'll encounter.
  • Set a realistic target score: Aim for a score that aligns with your desired business school programs.
  • Develop a study plan: Create a structured plan that allocates sufficient time for studying each section.
  • Practice with GMAT prep materials: Utilize official practice tests, prep books, and online resources to hone your test-taking skills.
  • Focus on your weaknesses: Identify your weaker areas and dedicate more study time to mastering those concepts.
  • Time management is key: Practice managing your time effectively during practice tests to ensure you complete all sections within the time limit.
  • Take mock exams: Simulate the actual GMAT testing environment by taking full-length mock exams under timed conditions.
  • Consider enrolling in a GMAT prep course: A prep course can provide valuable guidance, structure, and practice opportunities.

Allowed and Prohibited Items 

Allowed items include an appointment confirmation letter, GMAT-approved identification letter, and valid ID-proof,  prescribed eyeglasses.

Eatables, electronic devices, or any object that could be used as a weapon, are prohibited at the test center. 


So, this was all about GMAT exam centers Indian students can choose from. However,  no matter how perfect your test centers are,  the most essential thing is the preparation for the GMAT. 

One must develop appropriate study habits, stick to your timetable, and identify areas to improve in order to excel in your GMAT Focus Edition test.
