GMAC Essential Skills Assessment


Richard F

Hello -

I am in the process of compiling my application for ESMT's January 2021 MBA intake. I'm seeing that admissions is offering the option of taking something called the GMAC Essential Skills Assessment in place of the GMAT/GRE. I am curious if anyone out there has taken this before, or some other similar alternative to the GMAT/GRE, and could provide feedback on if it has obvious benefits to the online GRE test, which is what I was planning on submitting for my test for the application. I haven't taken the GRE yet, was planning on taking it at the beginning of next month ...

Any insights would be greatly appreciated!

This is similar to their Executive Assessment, about which there is another thread.

If you're just applying to one school, and they accept this test, then fine. But if you are planning on applying to more than one school, take the GMAT.

Yes, I'm only applying to one school that needs the test! I am applying to another European one-year MBA program, but that other school has already waved the test score for me, so it's just the one school. My concern is, I've only been studying for the GRE, and from what I can tell, the GMAC Essential Skills questions are more in line with the GMAT question structures ... would certainly prefer to just take the GMAC essential skills test just for the shortness of the test alone, though I'm concerned about bombing it, as the GMAC doesn't provide any practice/prep materials ...
