Who is behind

the GMAT?

The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), a non-profit organization of 212 business schools from 22 countries.

Although the number of members is relatively small, the GMAT exam itself is accepted by more than 7000 programs worldwide.

The actual delivery, administration, and scoring of the GMAT exam is handled by Pearson Vue.

Ascore was started by Ajitesh Arun, one of the very few instructors in the world, and the only one in India, with a perfect score of 51 on the verbal section of the GMAT.

As a graduate of IIM Lucknow and with experience across the education, marketing, and banking sectors, Ajitesh brings a lot more than just the GMAT to his sessions.

In addition to being passionate about teaching, Ajitesh is an expert content creator, creating high quality original content for his students to enhance their preparation.

What is the format

of the GMAT?

The GMAT has 4 sections: AWA (essay), IR (data), Quantitative, and Verbal. The AWA and IR sections are 30 minutes each, while the Quantitative and Verbal sections are 62 and 65 minutes.

Weekend: Classes are held on Saturday and Sunday and are between 2½ and 4 hours long. The course duration is: (a) 8 weeks for theory sessions and (b) ongoing support through doubt sessions.

What is the

validity of the score?

GMAT scores are valid for 5 years. All scores within this period are equal: there is no penalty for not having a recent score.

We value our association with you. Subject to the availability of seats, repetition of sessions is allowed as many times as you like, for as long as you like.

Should I focus on

only the GMAT?

No. Admissions committees take a holistic view of candidates. Although the GMAT is very important, a high score is not the only thing you need in order to get into good programs.

Think of it this way: a high score will not guarantee admission, but a low GMAT score is the single most common reason for rejection.

We prepare our students not just for the GMAT, but for their target schools. Our Complete program comes bundled with access to our admissions strategy, interview prep, and essay review modules.

Are there any

score guarantees?

No. There are no score guarantees of any kind on the GMAT exam.

At Ascore, academics always takes precedence over marketing. We do not use the word "guarantee" lightly, and guaranteeing a high GMAT score is impossible.


Rather than offer a complicated score "guarantee," we invite you to have a discussion with us on how we can help you. We strongly believe that we will add substantial value to your career, and not just from a test taking perspective.



the GMAT

The GMAT is a critical part of the admissions process at almost all leading graduate management programs. Its weight in the admissions process is ~20-30%.


It has two major components: the Quantitative section and the Verbal section. Total scores range from 200 (lowest) to 800 (highest). Quantitative and Verbal scores range from 6 (lowest) to 51 (highest).

Ascore is a test prep startup focused on delivering to students the very highest quality. Of instruction. Of instructors.

We are committed to pursuing excellence in all aspects of our relationship with our students.
