The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a standardized test conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council of the Educational Testing Service, ETS, US. The scores of these tests are used as one of the most important parameters by US Universities and top US B Schools in their selection process. The GMAT comprises four sections. Each of the four sections is separately timed.

The first two sections of the GMAT test are collectively known as the Analytical Writing Assessment Section (GMAT AWA Section). The next two sections in the GMAT test are objective type sections, one of which is the Quantitative section and the other is the Verbal section.
