GMAT Eligibility Criteria: A candidate aspiring to appear for GMAT need to fulfill the eligibility criteria stated by GMAC before registering for the test. There are a few eligibility standards stated by GMAC that a candidate must follow, which you can find in this article below. Take a look at the GMAT Eligibility Criteria.

The GMAT eligibility criterion may vary from institute to institute but that is applicable only after the candidate has cleared GMAT. However, the candidate will be required to confirm to the GMAT eligibility standards of the institute he/she has applied to. It should be noted that any institute, which provides post-graduate management degree, would demand a minimum qualification of Bachelor's degree from a recognised institute or university. Hence, it becomes necessary for the candidate to be a graduate if he/she plans to pursue education after sitting for GMAT.

GMAT or the Graduate Management Admission Test is the international test conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council for the admission in the B-schools of India and abroad. MBA aspirants, who want to pursue Executive Management Programmes or NRI candidates interested in pursuing MBA/PGP/PGDM from Indian B-schools, can take GMAT for admission to the afore mentioned programmes. Apart from that, GMAT scores are accepted by around 6,000 institutes across the world.

The candidate can be from any country or region and can be a student of any discipline. According to the GMAT handbook, if you are between 13 and 17 years old, you must get permission from a parentor legal guardian. For the permission, you must provide written proof of your guardian’s consent prior to scheduling the exam.

 

There are some points that you should remember before scheduling for the GMAT :

  1. You may take the exam no more than five times within a 12-month period.

  2. You must wait at least 31 days after you take the exam before you can take it again.

  3. You must wait at least five years if you have previously achieved a perfect Total score of 800.

  4. You must follow all of the registration and testing rules.

Candidates may apply for GMAT through the official website. Since there is no specific schedule, candidates may choose a date according to their convenience and availability of that date and time. Registration can also be done in other ways, like: Online, by phone, by mail and by fax.

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 5th Oct, 2019

hello aspirant,

see you can give toefel exam any time. because almost every month toefel exam has slot. you need to just prepare yourself. and toefel exam has no link with gmat exam. you need to apply separately for toefel as it is a english language proficiency test. you can apply for visa after gmat exam. before applying do multiple checking of eligibility criteria and marks requirement, visa permit everything. it would be best if you take some professional help. please search in your city if there is any professional who help with visa application process.

Can I apply for MBA in Poland, Germany and london without GMAT score but I do clear IELTS exam is it possible or not ?

siddhant dhruv Student Expert 4th Oct, 2019

Dear aspirant ,

In some colleges and universities for MBA , a student applying for MBA outside the country have to give GMAT exam . Students applying for MBA in England have to give GMAT exam , it is compulsory . However , there are some universities in England in which it is not compulsory to give GMAT exam  instead of it students having a work experience for more than 2 years can apply directly for MBA program . In Germany most universities accept TOEFL score and not GMAT score , there are universities which accept both TOEFL and GMAT score .  In Poland all types of entrance exams are accepted like TOEFL , IELTS and GMAT . So  for betterment of you , you should first choose a country for which you want to study MBA and then second look at the eligibility criteria at different universities and according to that give a appropriate entrance exam . Also you can do is that choose a university of that country and then check which entrance exams for MBA they accept .

Hope it helps.

I am GEM with 91% in 10th, 89.60% in 12th and 69.55% in Graduation (BE). Passed CFA Level 1. 8 months of work-ex. How much should I get in CAT/XAT/GMAT/NMAT to get into one of the top 25 b-school?

Papiya Mazumder 27th Sep, 2019

Hello,

As per your requirement, i would say that as mentioned above your educational details, you need to be at your very best in each step.

First stage is CAT

In which if you are a general candidate you will have to get atleast 95.5(Cutoff changes every year) to get call from New and Baby IIM.

Coming to Old IIM(BLACKI) many things are considered

10,12, Graduation score .

Work experience.

Gender ( For female Candidates)/Academic diversity (For Non Engg)

Weightage given to above mentioned criteria is different in every college,you can visit the college website to get the details.

So having work experience is always an advantage but like I said the weightage varies.

Final stage.

WAT/PI Stage

The weightage for WAT/PI is usually high in Old IIM close to 50%.

Personal Interview is the one that either make it or break it.

So PI usually decides whether you will get selected or not.

For exact details you can visit the IIM website and check the criteria which will have all the details.

Good luck
