Prep Zone provides a number of great opportunities for potential GMAT test takers to meet us and get started on their journey towards Business School for FREE.

Attend a FREE GMAT Intro session

Our weekly Intro sessions contain an introduction to GMAT question types and strategy, a conversation about business school admissions and an overview of GMAT Zone's various course options. Call us to reserve your seat at an upcoming Intro session.

Enrol for a FREE GMAT diagnostic test

Taking the diagnostic test will give you practical GMAT experience and a deeper understanding of the GMAT exam. After you have taken the diagnostic test, one of our consultants will help you devise a study plan and determine, based on your results, which of GMAT Zone’s course options fit you best.

Sign up for a FREE 15 min business school admissions session

Discuss your business school and career plans with one of our top MBA graduate admissions consultants, to help you solidify your b-school plan and ensure that you remain focused on the big picture.
We open new GMAT group courses every two weeks or less, so you will attend a “make-up” class with another group at no additional charge. We recommend that students do their best to attend each class but we also do understand that GMAT test takers have a number of other responsibilities and will thus do our best to accommodate your unique circumstances.

We're different. When you register for a group course, you get unlimited access to all our group classes, in all our groups, forever. It's less of a purchase and more of a lifetime membership. Attend the same class as many times as you need to grasp the concepts completely! If you tell us your restrictions (e.g. "I can only come on Sun mornings" OR "I need to finish in two months" OR "I want to have a class once a month for the next 1 year"), we will come up with a personalised timetable for you. It's our headache to figure out the schedule. Just call us. We'll figure it out.

The GMAT exam is "Computer Adaptive", which means that according to how you answer the questions, different questions are assigned to you. You start of with a "medium difficulty" question and an average score.
  • If you consistently answer correctly, a more difficult GMAT question may appear next.
  • If you answer incorrectly, an easier GMAT question may appear.
Sometimes, new types of GMAT questions are randomly included in the test to test students' answers, therefore an easier or more difficult question may not be an indication of how you answered the previous question.
Your score is calculated based on:
  • The number of questions answered correctly
  • The difficulty of the questions answered correctly
  • The number of questions completed (not just correct ones)
For this reason, we advise our GMAT students to attempt all questions on the GMAT.

GMAT test takers receive four scores. An Official GMAT Score Report shows each of these scores; in cases of repeat testing, the score report will show all of the test taker's GMAT scores for the past five years.
  • Verbal (0 to 60) - 42 and above for 95th percentile
  • Quantitative (0 to 60) - 50 and above for 95th percentile
  • Analytical Writing Assessment (0-6) - Scored separately from overall GMAT score*
  • Integrated Reasoning (0-8) - Scored separately from overall GMAT score
  • Total Score (200 to 800) - 720 and above for 95th percentile
