5 Reasons to Choose GMAT Focus over GRE

Boosts Your Application. GMAT Focus is the only admissions test designed exclusively for today’s graduate business programs, while the GRE is a general test.

More Program Options. More than 7,700 programs at over 2,400 business schools accept GMAT Focus, whereas the GRE is only accepted by 1,300.

More Time Per Question. On GMAT Focus, you have more than 2 minutes to answer each question. That's 25% more time per question than the GRE on average.

Better Score Sending. Be in control of your score and select which schools receive your results after you take the GMAT Focus Edition. On the GRE, you must select your schools before you even know how you did.

Shows Your Skills. Data analytics is an in-demand skill for employers. The new Data Insights section shows schools you have what it takes to succeed in the classroom and your career. GRE does not assess your data literacy.
