Preparation is key to a successful exam for business school admission and good preparation starts with a solid GMAT study plan. This is why the organization that administers the aptitude test is now offering its own interactive tool to estimate your required study time. After you answer just three short questions, the platform generates a study plan tailored to your available time and everyday routine.

The tool is based on self-reported data from GMAT test takers around the world. While this can provide a good indication of the preparation required, the exact amount of study time to achieve a certain score will vary from candidate to candidate.

You can easily get started by answering three questions about yourself in the online tool. The questions are:

  • What is your GMAT target score?
  • How many hours per week can you study for the GMAT exam?
  • What is your region?

The platform then offers a fun and colorful visualization of possible ways to save valuable time and spend in on GMAT preparation instead. “Is the application deadline approaching and do you need your GMAT score sooner? Maybe you can free up more time than you think,” suggests the GMAT tool.

Candidates can provide their names and email address to receive their full GMAT study plan divided per week and focusing on 1) objectives, 2) specific tasks, 3) study materials, and 4) additional tips.
