THE GMAT EXAM
Newly Re-designed Format

The best score on the GMAT would be a combined 800 for the Quantitative and Verbal sections, a 6 for the Analytic Writing Assessment (AWA), and an 8 for the Integrated Reasoning (IR) section. However, such scores are not required by most schools. Furthermore , candidates for an MSc in Business can focus on only the Quantitative and Verbal sections, as many MSc programs do not use the AWA or IR scores in their admissions process.
In contrast, students aiming for a top-ten MBA program will need to achieve solid scores on all four sections of the exam. This can be remarkably difficult to do, and you should take a simulation 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 the gap for to a "Top-10" MBA program.
GMAT Testing Centers in the Netherlands
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.

We offer a productive training environment for all our students, with an emphasis on practice and refinement of technique. We also keep enrollment selective, to maximise your chance to be in the right class with the right people. That means you may be asked to improve your score to approximately 400 before enrolling in the quant or verbal course. Our GMAT Quant 600 is the most comprehensive in the Netherlands, comprised of two classes and one simulation each week - 36 hours in total. No other prep course in Amsterdam comes close to this kind of value. Our GMAT Verbal 600 course is also industry-leading in time and depth of study.
Should you require a customised training experience, we offer the best value-for-money in the industry: Our record is a 60-point gain in only 3 hours of tutoring. With other schools, this kind of increase requires 20+ hours of tutoring. Therefore we confidently say that we have, by far, the best value for money in the industry.
