Do I need a GMAT test?
We offer the Executive Assessment as an alternative to the GMAT. The Executive Assessment or GMAT is an important part of the application process, as these tests help us assess your study readiness. They also support our understanding of your exceptional strengths, and help us to identify areas you may need to focus on to get the best from your studies.
If you have not yet taken a test, you can submit without a test result. However, you will need to provide a test date that is booked within 1 week of your application submission date. You should provide this test date on page 5 of your application. Our Admissions team may be unable to make a final decision on your application until your test result has been received.
We also offer GMAT/EA waivers to exceptional candidates who are able demonstrate the skills covered by the test through academic achievements and work experience. If you feel you may be eligible for a waiver, please send across your CV and your reason for a waiver request.
You may be eligible for a waiver if you possess:
