GRE to GMAT Conversion

GRE to GMAT ConversionIf you’re comparing apples to oranges, it is going to be a crazy thing to do. Similarly GRE and GMAT are two different sets of tests. There are some business-schools who accept the GRE or GMAT scores to meet as an eligibility criterion for the courses offered. To shortlist the candidates of GRE over GMAT, ETS has created a conversion tool. The main purpose of this is to evaluate your GRE scores on the parameters of GMAT score chart.

With the help this you can find the equivalent score. Remember, before applying to any course, go through the brochure whether they require only GMAT score or GRE score or any one out of the both.

Comparing the score of GMAT and GRE is likely to if you compare your five fingers on a graph you’ll conclude likewise:

  1. Thumb is a unique in terms of shape and size.
  2. The index finger is the taller than little finger and smaller than middle and ring finger.
  3. The middle finger is the tallest finger.
  4. The ring finger is the second tallest finger.
  5. And little finger is the sweetest finger among all.

How ETS created this tool?

ETS’ GRE comparison tool may not be as accurate at it may see, and using this tool is not as directly as presented. This tool of comparison is all about averages. Adcom decisions are about human considerations based on professional ethics.

ETS conducted a survey on 525 scholars, who applied for both tests to use their scores for a research study. They used statistical analysis to create a prediction grid of GMAT, based on the average scores. The outcome of the survey ranges around 67.4 standard error of prediction stated by ETS. The result creates a doubt over the genuineness of the tool to ascertain the GRE scores in terms of GMAT for further admission process.

The  67.4 standard error of prediction indicates that  only a 17.6 percent possibility are there that the predicted GMAT score would be 10 points higher or lower than or can be exactly the same  the test-taker would actually obtain on the GMAT test.

Again we’re recommending that this tool may not so accurate, and the rest of the accepting of one’s candidature depends upon the final decision taken by the admission committee.
