GMAT® Volume Shows Slight Improvement

GMAT® volume in the United States and other parts of the world declined in the first eight months of 2004, compared with the same period a year ago. But the percent decline in the number of tests administered year-to-date is now less pronounced than it was earlier in the year.

Through August 31, 2004, the GMAT® exam was taken 130,929 times worldwide, down 6.19% from the 139,571 test administrations that occurred between January 1 and August 31, 2003.

Taken alone, figures for the United States show a decline of 3.81% year-to-date, compared with 2003. Year-to-date GMAT® volume outside the United States fell 11.26%. Data suggest that this decline is primarily the result of decreases in the number of tests taken in China, Japan, and Canada—a trend also evident during 2003.
