The Graduation Management Admission Test, or as we all know it, GMAT is a computer-adaptive that assesses a candidate on three parameters- analytical writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills. By computer-adaptive, we mean that the level and difficulty of the question present before the candidate depends upon the previous answer given by them.
