Same GMAT® Scores, New Reporting Format

Don’t be surprised if some of the GMAT® score reports you receive during the next few months have a different look and feel than the ones that you’re used to seeing. These newly designed score reports are part of the limited testing program we are conducting this summer in connection with the transition of the GMAT® exam from ETS® to Pearson VUE, a business of NCS Pearson, Inc., and ACT, Inc. The program will involve approximately 1,500 GMAT® test takers, who will take the exam in 20 cities around the world as we verify new processes. If any of these test takers send their scores to your school, you will receive score reports from Pearson VUE in a slightly different way than you do today—but the reports will be official.   . . . read more
