APTITUDE TEST SCORES
The GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) is an international standardized text held in English.
It is used by international business schools and universities in graduate and post-experience program admissions.
Due to the current emergency situation, from 2020-21 AY Bocconi accepts also GMAT Online Exam.
The test has four sections:
- Quantitative reasoning section: it lasts 62 minutes and includes 31 multiple-choice questions that measure data sufficiency and problem solving skills
- Verbal skills section: it lasts 65 minutes and includes 36 multiple-choice questions which evaluate reading comprehension, critical reasoning and sentence correction
- Analytical writing assessment and integrated reasoning section (the scores in these two sections are not required for admission to Bocconi.
The GMAT Official Score is required for the selection: in order to be evaluated you have to upload your Official Score Report on "MyApplication".
If you have only the unofficial score by the deadline of the session you are applying for, you can participate to the selection BUT, in case of admission, you will be asked to upload the Official Score on MyApplication by the enrollment deadline.
Please note that if the official score (uploaded during the enrollment period ) is lower than the unofficial one considered for the selection, admission and/or scholarship awarding could be revoked ( checks of the documents uploaded could be fulfilled during or after the enrollment period).
In addition, we kindly invite you to select “Bocconi University” as recipient of your test score.
