GMAT vs. GRE: Side-by-Side Comparison

Posted by Mark Skoskiewicz on Tue, Apr 01, 2014 @ 09:37 AM

More and more business schools allow you to choose whether to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) vs Graduate Managment Admissions Test (GMAT) for your application.  It’s true, and, it means that you have some decisions to make.

In fact, whether to take the GMAT or the GRE is a question we get asked a lot in the process of discussing private GMAT tutoring or private GRE tutoring options with potential students. Because business schools are just now beginning to accept the GRE and the GMAT, this is a recent trend, and we must admit that we don't have too many examples of students that have decided to take the GRE.  

As a result, we also don't have too many examples of students who have decided to take the GRE and have also been accepted into a top b-school program.  But, that's really just about sample size.  While 655,000 people take the GRE each year, I'd bet 90-95% of them are going to graduate school (not an MBA program), which means the pool of people taking the GRE for business school admissions is currently quite small.

Luckily, the MyGuru team has a resource that can help you decide whether it could make sense to take the GRE instead of the GMAT! Magoosh just released a new GRE vs. GMAT Infographic that presents a side-by-side comparison of the GRE and the GMAT.
