With this expansion, the GMAT is now available for testing on demand at more than 400 test centers in 97 countries.

MCLEAN, Va., April 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®), the most widely used assessment for admission to graduate management programs around the world, has added test sites in Azerbaijan, Moldova and Oman.

With this expansion, the GMAT is now available for testing on demand at more than 400 test centers in 97 countries.

The new GMAT testing centers in Baku, Azerbaijan; Chisinau, Moldova; and Muscat, Oman, feature the same high-tech facilities found at other GMAT testing center locations. These facilities include biometric equipment to positively establish each tester's identity, video cameras to monitor activity in the testing room, and highly secure computer servers to host the exam.

"We are committed to expanding access to the GMAT exam, particularly in countries and regions where the demand for quality graduate business education is increasing," said Peg Jobst, senior vice president of the GMAT program at the Graduate Management Admission Council® (GMAC®), the international association of top business schools that owns the GMAT. "We are excited to bring the GMAT exam to people in Azerbaijan, Moldova and Oman."

Each GMAT tester receives a customized set of questions that reflect his or her actual performance on the exam. The computer-adaptive format of the GMAT helps ensure that every score is comparable, no matter where a tester takes the exam.

The GMAT is delivered worldwide by Pearson VUE, the electronic testing arm of Pearson Education Inc. The exam is administered in the computer-adaptive format at every testing center worldwide, ensuring that every tester takes the exam under the same conditions.
