Overview of the Exam:

  • Questions are selected automatically and displayed on the computer screen one at a time. Each question has only one correct answer and once answered, cannot be changed.
  • The difficulty of the questions adjusts based on the correctness of the student’s responses, ranging from very difficult to very easy, to assess the student’s level.
  • If a student answers incorrectly, the computer selects a slightly easier subsequent question.

Minimum Scores:

  • The lowest score possible is 200, and the highest is 800. Turkish universities typically require a score of around 600 or above.

Note: The validity of the GMAT score is five years.

Important Tips for the Exam:

  1. Give sufficient time to the first question and try to answer it correctly, as it determines the difficulty level of the next question.
  2. Never leave a question unanswered. Always make your best guess because unanswered questions result in a greater deduction of points compared to incorrect answers.
  3. Use the allotted time efficiently and do not rush to finish early as you cannot go back to review your answers.
