After the announcement of a new and improved GMAT focus edition that is shorter and more efficient earlier this year, GMAC has now announced the registration dates for the exam. In addition to this, the availability of the GMAT Focus edition prep books has also been announced.

GMAT Focus Edition Registration Dates Announced

Announced earlier this year, the Graduate Management Admission Council announced the important dates pertaining to the new test. In a press release, the GMAT focus edition revealed the registration dates as well as the availability of the GMAT focus official prep material.

According to the press release, aspirants will be able to register themselves for the test starting August 29, 2023, facilitating the scheduled commencement of the test in the 4th quarter. Candidates can purchase the GMAT Focus Edition prep material from the official website starting 6 June 2023.

There will be several different GMAT Focus Edition prep books including free materials like the 6-week Study Planner, and the official starter kit. The other prep materials include the GMAT Official Guide Series which also contains supplements for each section such as physical and ebooks, the Official Practice Exams and Practice Questions.

GMAC also announced the GMAT Focus Edition scoring system, wherein test takers will be able to secure a score between 205-805, where the interval between each score is set at 10. The score range for each section of the GMAT Focus edition has been outlined as follows:

  • Quantitative Reasoning: 60-90

  • Verbal Reasoning: 60-90

  • Data Insights: 60-90

Additionally, students will also be able to see their unofficial scores immediately after completing the test, however, they will not be allowed to record the unofficial scores in any manner. Moreover, students will also be negatively marked if they do not complete any section. Candidates are required to complete each section within the allotted time limit to not be penalised.

In a bid to identify test-takers who sat for the current GMAT exam and those who sat for the GMAT focus edition, the scoring range has been changed. The scoring range of the current exam lies between 200-800. With the GMAT Focus edition, the scoring range will vary from 205-805, with intervals of 10 in between. In other words, if a candidate has scored 505 in the focus edition, the next possible score that can be earned will be 515.

Thus, the institutions will be able to separate the two test takers, as both tests evaluate different parameters, skills and abilities of the candidate. As the current GMAT exam will remain valid for the next five years, such distinction in the scoring system was important.
