Big changes are coming to the GMAT effective April 8. In what the GMAC is billing as greater flexibility and a more realistic test-center experience, the Analytical Writing Assessment is making a return. Furthermore, test-takers will be able to take more and more frequent breaks. They will also have the ability to choose the order in which they take the GMAT sections.

Last, and certainly not least, the test-takers will be able to immediately preview their unofficial scores. Maybe it’s cynicism, but we’re highly confident that the last tweak is the GMAC’s way of trying to regain some of its lost market share.

Prospective applicants can begin registering for the new GMAT on February 17.
