Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT)
The Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is a computer-adaptive test which evaluates skills and abilities developed over a long period of time and which is administered worldwide. Recently the GMAT exam was redesigned into the GMAT Focus Edition.
The original GMAT exam consists of four main parts:
- Analytical Writing
- Quantitative Reasoning
- Verbal Reasoning
- Integrated Reasoning
These parts can be completed in a choice of 3 section orders. This exam will be available until early 2024 and then cease to exist.
The new GMAT Focus Edition consists of three sections:
- Quantitative Reasoning – assesses problem solving skills
- Verbal Reasoning – assesses critical reasoning and reading comprehension
- Data Insights – assesses data literacy skills
Candidates can take these sections in any order. Each section is 45 min long.
There are GMAT test centers available worldwide, 7 days a week or online around the clock.
HHL accepts scores for both the GMAT and GMAT Focus edition, taken in test centres or online.
Graduate Record Examination Test (GRE)
The GRE General Test closely reflects the kind of thinking you’ll do in today’s demanding graduate school programs, including business and law. It measures your verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills — skills that have been developed over a long period of time and aren’t related to a specific field of study but are important for all. The GRE General Test is a computer-delivered test. Its test-taker friendly design lets you skip questions within a section, go back and change answers and have the flexibility to choose which questions within a section you want to answer first.
Content and timing GRE:
- Analytical writing – 30 min
- Quantitative Reasoning – 47 min
- Verbal Reasoning – 41 min
You may take the test in one of the many authorized test centers around the world or at home as an online test that ist accessible around the clock, 7 days a week, with appointments available as early as 24 hours after your registration.
HHL Entry Test
This HHL Entry Test is designed to help the Admissions Committee at HHL evaluate how suitable individual applicants are for HHL’s Master and MBA programs. Therefore, it measures
- numerical manipulation
- analytical modelling
- understanding and communication
- logical and critical thinking
- holistic data management
- business situation assessment.
We encourage candidates to familiarize themselves with the test format through two free sample tests and to take the test soon after they got invited. Please note that the sample tests include a case study. However, the case study will not be a part of the actual HHL Entry Test.
The test does not measure a person’s knowledge of specific fields of study. Of course, there are many other qualifications that will help you succeed in HHL’s admission process – for instance job experience, leadership ability, motivation, and interpersonal skills. The HHL Entry Test does not measure these qualities. Instead, it is used as standard criterion among other, more subjective criteria, such as essays and interviews. The HHL Entry Test is an online test and lasts two hours. Using a calculator is permitted.
HHL regularly offers an HHL Entry Test Preparation Seminar. We invite you to take part to find out more about the test.
