The GMAT is a test in four parts. Applicants for a premaster in business are required to take only the Quantitative and Verbal sections. For an MBA, usually all four sections are required. The order shown below is for illustration purposes only. On the day of the test, you can choose which section to do first.

A perfect score on the GMAT would be a 51 for each of the Quantitative and Verbal sections, a 6 for the Analytic Writing Assessment (AWA), and an 8 for the Integrated Reasoning (IR) section. Though each section is scored separately, the famous GMAT score is actually out of 800. That score is based on the Quant and Verbal section scores, but not in any way that will make sense to mortals. Of more interest are the percentile ranking tables, which indicate how well you are doing, and how far you still must go.
Students aiming for a top-ten MBA program will need to hit solid scores on all four sections of the exam. This can be remarkably difficult to do, and you should take a diagnostic as early as possible, in order to assure that you have the time that you need to prepare. It may be that you already have a score within range of your target schools. On the other hand, it is not unusual to take 3-6 months to close a big score gap for a Top-10 MBA program.
This testing location is near the Bijlmer Arena station, in Amsterdam, at the BCN Amsterdam testing facility, Atlas Arena facility, Azie Gebouw, 5th floor.
Near Utrecht, and with plenty of parking on-site, this testing center is sadly not reachable by train.
