Registration for GMAT™ Focus Edition to Open in August 2023

Free prep materials available two months prior to propel candidates to success on their business school journey

RESTON, Va., May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Graduate Management Admission Council™ (GMAC), a global association representing leading business schools, today announced that registration for the GMAT™ Focus Edition, an updated version of the Graduate Management Admission Test™ (GMAT™) exam, will open on August 29, 2023 for testing in the fourth quarter this year. In addition, official GMAT Focus prep materials will be available on mba.com on June 6, 2023, with a free study planner of only six weeks to help test takers stick to a schedule, inform prep activities, and track progress, as well as a free GMAT Focus Official Starter Kit that comes with a sampler of 70 real GMAT questions and two full-length practice exams to help candidates establish performance baseline.

Earlier this year, GMAC introduced GMAT Focus Edition after extensive research efforts involving hundreds of school professionals and an in-depth concept testing with thousands of students globally. The GMAT, the most widely used business school admissions exam in the past seven decades, was redesigned with improved test taking experience and flexible new features to better support candidates of graduate business education. Schools will benefit from it as an improved element in their holistic admissions process.

“We want to encourage people with a broad set of qualifications, undergraduate backgrounds and lived experiences to understand the richness of their choice and take that leap forward on their business school journey,” said Joy Jones, CEO of GMAC. “It is our belief that GMAT Focus Edition will allow candidates to optimize their preparation for graduate business education while helping schools attract a global pool of qualified and diverse applicants.”

“This is an important evolution of the test,” said Bruce DelMonico, Assistant Dean for Admissions at Yale School of Management and a board member of GMAC. “In terms of the relevance and usefulness of the test, this is definitely a positive step that will be beneficial both to business schools and to candidates.”

More efficient, more flexible, and more insightful, in an all-new testing experience

The GMAT Focus Edition will feature three 45-minute sections: Quantitative Reasoning, which examines problem solving skills; Verbal Reasoning, which evaluates critical reasoning and reading comprehension but no longer incorporates sentence correction; and the newly developed Data Insights section, which measures candidates’ data literacy skills and ability to analyze and interpret data and apply it to real-world business scenarios. With these changes and the removal of the Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA), it is nearly one hour shorter than the current version of the GMAT and therefore requires less content to prepare. Besides new features that allow test takers to bookmark as many questions as they want, review questions within the remaining section time and change up to three answers per section, and to complete the three sections in any order, the enhanced Official Score Report now offers detailed performance insights that helps them assess strengths and identify focus areas at no additional cost.

“I think the redesign of the GMAT exam is testament to GMAC’s commitment to continuous improvement. Changes to the exam address the growing importance of certain competencies and the future of work – for example with the addition of Data Insight,” said Arnold Longboy, Executive Director, Recruitment & Admissions at London Business School.

New score scale and concordance to help assess candidate competitiveness

The GMAT Focus Edition’s Total Score, ranging from 205 to 805, is based on test taker performance on all three sections of the exam, with each section, ranging from 60 to 90, weighted equally. This change has been made to ensure that test takers and schools can easily distinguish from a GMAT Focus Edition score to the currently available GMAT Exam score, which ranges from 200 to 800. To understand a test taker’s relative competitiveness, one can use the concordance tables available on mba.com that link score distributions between the two versions of the exam by percentile. With the GMAT Focus Edition’s new score scale, percentile rankings deserve the primary attention from test takers and schools when looking to understand the results.

“When comparing scores of GMAT Focus Edition to the current version of the GMAT Exam, we encourage test takers and schools to compare percentile rankings rather than comparing total scores,” stressed Manish Dharia, director of product development at GMAC. “Because the Total Score scale and the score scale distribution have both changed, comparing total scores or section scores from the current version of the exam to the GMAT Focus Edition is not appropriate, accurate, or a meaningful comparison of performance. Scores of 600 and 605 may look similar, but they represent very different performance levels on different skills.”

Additional efforts to facilitate smooth transition and swift adoption

As GMAT Focus Edition rolls out for the remainder of 2023, the current version of the GMAT exam will continue to be available to candidates until early next year to facilitate their in-progress preparation and applications for business school. Also, to that end, the GMAT Focus Edition fees will remain the same as the current GMAT exam.

“Keep in mind, all GMAT exam scores – whether they are of the current GMAT or GMAT Focus Edition – continue to be valid for 5 years,” said Ashish Bhardwaj, senior vice president and head of market development at GMAC. “With the advance announcement of the new edition, we encourage candidates to proceed with registering and taking the GMAT exam in ways that best enable their pursuit of graduate management education.”

Les inscriptions à l’examen GMAT™ Focus Edition ouvriront en août 2023

Des supports préparatoires gratuits seront disponibles deux mois au préalable afin d’aider les candidats à réussir dans leur parcours vers les écoles de commerce

RESTON, Virginie, 02 mai 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Le Graduate Management Admission Council™ (GMAC), une association mondiale représentant les plus grandes écoles de commerce, a annoncé aujourd’hui que les inscriptions au GMAT™ Focus Edition, une version actualisée du Graduate Management Admission Test™ (GMAT™), ouvriront le 29 août 2023, tandis que l’examen se déroulera au quatrième trimestre de l’année. Par ailleurs, des supports préparatoires officiels du GMAT Focus seront disponibles sur mba.com le 6 juin 2023, avec un planificateur d’études gratuit de seulement six semaines pour aider les candidats à se tenir à un planning, informer les activités préparatoires et suivre leurs progrès, outre un GMAT Focus Official Starter Kit gratuit fourni avec un échantillonneur de 70 vraies questions du GMAT et deux examens pratiques taille réelle pour aider les candidats à établir un référentiel de leurs performances.

Plus tôt cette année, le GMAC a lancé le GMAT Focus Edition après des efforts de recherche étendus impliquant des centaines de professionnels scolaires et un test de concept approfondi avec des milliers d’étudiants à l’échelle mondiale. Le GMAT, l’examen d’admissions pour écoles de commerce le plus largement utilisé au cours des sept dernières décennies, a été repensé pour offrir une expérience améliorée et de nouvelles fonctions flexibles permettant de mieux soutenir les candidats souhaitant poursuivre des études supérieures dans le commerce. Les écoles en bénéficieront en guise d’élément amélioré de leur processus holistique d’admissions.

« Nous voulons encourager les personnes avec un large ensemble de qualifications, les étudiants en premier cycle et les individus aux expériences vécues à comprendre la richesse de leur choix et à réellement avancer dans leur parcours vers les écoles de commerce », a déclaré Joy Jones, PDG du GMAC. « Nous croyons que le GMAT Focus Edition permettra aux candidats d’optimiser leur préparation aux études supérieures de commerce tout en aidant les écoles à attirer un pool mondial de candidats qualifiés et diversifiés. »

« Il s’agit d’une évolution importante du test », a commenté Bruce DelMonico, doyen adjoint pour les admissions à la Yale School of Management et membre du conseil d’administration du GMAC. « En termes de pertinence et d’utilité, ce test présente véritablement une progression positive qui bénéficiera tant aux écoles de commerce qu’aux candidats. »

Plus efficace, plus flexible et plus instructif, dans le cadre d’une expérience de test entièrement nouvelle

Le GMAT Focus Edition comprendra trois sections de 45 minutes : Raisonnement quantitatif, qui examine les compétences de résolution des problèmes ; Raisonnement verbal, qui évalue le raisonnement critique et la compréhension de lecture mais n’intègre plus la correction de phrases ; et la toute nouvelle section Connaissances des données, qui mesure les compétences de lecture des données des candidats et leur capacité à analyser et interpréter les données et à les appliquer à des scénarios commerciaux réels. Avec ces changements et le retrait de l’Évaluation de rédaction analytique (Analytical Writing Assessment, AWA), il dure près d’une heure de moins que la version actuelle du GMAT et requiert donc moins de contenu pour se préparer. Outre de nouvelles fonctions permettant aux candidats d’attribuer un signet à autant de questions qu’ils le veulent, de passer en revue des questions pendant le temps restant d’une section, de changer jusqu’à trois réponses par section, et de compléter les trois sections dans n’importe quel ordre, le Rapport de notation officiel amélioré intègre désormais des informations détaillées sur leurs performances qui les aident à évaluer leurs points forts et à identifier les domaines sur lesquels ils doivent se concentrer sans aucun coût supplémentaire.

« Je crois que la refonte de l’examen GMAT atteste de l’engagement du GMAC en faveur d’une amélioration continue. Les modifications apportées à l’examen s’adressent à l’importance grandissante de certaines compétences et à l’avenir du travail, par exemple avec l’ajout de la section Connaissances des données », a déclaré Arnold Longboy, directeur exécutif du recrutement et des admissions à la London Business School.

Une nouvelle échelle de notation et un système de concordance pour aider à évaluer la compétitivité des candidats

Le Score total du GMAT Focus Edition, allant de 205 à 805, se base sur les performances d’un candidat aux trois sections de l’examen, où chaque section, allant de 60 à 90, est considérée avec la même valeur. Ce changement a été apporté pour s’assurer que les candidats comme les écoles puissent facilement distinguer une note au GMAT Focus Edition d’une note à l’examen GMAT actuellement disponible, qui va de 200 à 800. Pour comprendre la compétitivité relative d’un candidat, il est possible d’utiliser les tableaux de concordance disponibles sur mba.com qui lient les distributions de notes entre les deux versions de l’examen par centile. Avec la nouvelle échelle de notation du GMAT Focus Edition, les classements par centile méritent le plus gros de l’attention des candidats et des écoles cherchant à comprendre les résultats.

« Lorsqu’il s’agit de comparer les notes du GMAT Focus Edition à la version actuelle de l’examen GMAT, nous encourageons les candidats et les écoles à comparer les classements en centile plutôt que les notes totales », a insisté Manish Dharia, directeur du développement produits au GMAC. « Comme l’échelle de Note totale et la distribution de l’échelle de notation ont toutes deux changé, il ne serait pas approprié, précis ou pertinent de comparer les notes totales ou des notes de sections de la version actuelle à celles de l’examen GMAT Focus Edition. Des scores de 600 et 605 peuvent paraître similaires, mais ils représentent des niveaux de performance très différents pour différentes compétences. »

Des efforts additionnels pour faciliter une transition fluide et une adoption rapide

Alors que le GMAT Focus Edition se déploie pour le reste de l’année 2023, la version actuelle de l’examen GMAT restera disponible pour les candidats jusqu’au début de l’année prochaine afin de faciliter leur préparation en cours et leurs candidatures aux écoles de commerce. Par ailleurs, à cette fin, les frais pour le GMAT Focus Edition resteront les mêmes que pour l’examen GMAT actuel.

« Gardez à l’esprit que toutes les notes à l’examen GMAT, qu’il s’agisse du GMAT actuel ou du GMAT Focus Edition, restent valables pendant 5 ans », a déclaré Ashish Bhardwaj, vice-président sénior et responsable du développement de marché au GMAC. « Avec l’annonce anticipée de la nouvelle édition, nous encourageons les candidats à s’inscrire et à passer l’examen des façons qui favorisent le mieux leur poursuite d’études supérieures en management. »

Mr Andrews Addoquaye Tagoe, the Deputy General Secretary of the General Agriculture Workers Union (GAWU) has been honoured for his 26 years of dedication, meritorious and outstanding service to the Union and the Trade Union Movement.

He was part of the team that rescued over 4,500 Children from Child labour, Forced Labour and Trafficking and organising the parents into the Union.

Mr Tagoe picked the awards during the 2023 Special National May Day Celebration held in the Upper East Regional Capital, Bolgatanga on the theme:’ Protecting incomes and pensions in an era of economic crisis: Out responsibility.’

He was awarded for his invaluable contribution to the Union in various capacities as the Deputy General Secretary, Anglophone African Coordinator, Global March Against Child Labour, Occupational Safety, Health, and Environmental / Child Labour (Specialist).

The Deputy General Secretary created the ‘Torkor Model’, a Concept of Child Labour Free Zones in Africa.

PAC Chair cautions organisations against flouting 30-day grace period

Mr James Klutse Avedzi, the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Parliament, has cautioned organisations and institutions against the abuse of the 30 days grace period to submit all documents to the Audit Service.

He explained that, under the Audit Service’s Act, 2000 (Act 584) an auditee who did not have all the documents available after being audited had a grace period of 30 days as provided by the law.

However, the Chairman indicated that, ‘this aspect of the law had been taken for granted because some organisations believed after the 30 days period had elapsed another opportunity would be given.

‘We will surprise them, we will no longer accept documents again after the 30 days and go straight to implement what is in the law, but the officer in-charge have to pay for the expenditure,’ he stated.

Mr Avedzi was sparking to the media in an interview at the close of the PAC’s Public Hearing for the Consideration of the 2020 Auditor-General’s Report in Sunyani.

He stressed within 30 days, if organisations/institutions were able to provide the documents to the satisfaction of the auditors, that would end the process.

But if a particular entity could not, the auditors would have no option than to cite it in their report to draw parliament’s attention to that failure for further action.

Mr Avedzi emphasised once the law had made provision for additional 30 days to provide all relevant documents but was not done, the officer responsible for that infraction would be surcharged to pay, albeit that transaction was done in the interest of the entity.

Justice Torkonoo’s nomination referred to Appointments Committee for consideration, report

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged Parliament to facilitate the approval of Justice Gertrude Araba Esaaba Torkonoo as the Chief Justice.

The President, in a letter to the Speaker, said the facilitation of Justice Torkonoo’s approval was to avoid a vacuum in the office of the Chief Justice pending the retirement of Chief Justice Kwasi Anin Yeboah on May 24, 2023, when he attains 70 years.

Mr Joseph Osei-Owusu, the First Deputy Speaker, presiding over proceedings, read a letter from President Akufo-Addo to the House during the emergency sitting of Parliament on Tuesday.

‘It is my respectful hope that the approval by Parliament of Justice Torkonoo can proceed expeditiously to enable her to assume office as soon as practicable following the retirement of Chief Justice Anin Yeboah,’ it read.

Mr Osei-Owusu, subsequently, referred the letter to the Appointments Committee for consideration and report to the House.

On Wednesday, April 26, 2023, President Akufo-Addo nominated Justice Torkornoo, a Justice of the Supreme Court, as the next Chief Justice of Ghana.

Justice Torkornoo, 60, has been on the Supreme Court for the past four years and a member of the Judiciary for the past 19 years.

Her nomination came after President Akufo-Addo had consulted the Council of State in fulfilment of Article 144 (I) of the Constitution, which governs the appointment of a Chief Justice.

Article 144 (1) requires the President to consult the Council of State before seeking the approval of Parliament of the new Chief Justice.

‘Consequently, I am nominating Justice Gertrude Araba Essaba Torkornoo, a member of the Supreme Court, as the New Chief Justice. I hereby enclose a copy of her Curriculum Vitae for your attention’ the President said in a letter to the Council of State.

If approved by Parliament, Justice Torkornoo would be the third female Chief Justice after Justice Georgina Theodora Wood and Justice Sophia Akuffo.

First Deputy Prime Minister of the Czech Republic leads surgeons to CCTH

The First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior of the Czech Republic, Mr Vít Rakušan is leading a crack team of plastic and orthopedic surgeons to commence a week of 100 surgeries at the Cape Coast Teaching hospital (CCTH).

The medical gesture, dubbed ‘Medical Humanitarian Programme (MEDEVAC),’ is a permanent programme by the Government of the Czech Republic to improve health care services across the globe.

It is to provide free medical care and assistance to vulnerable groups in countries affected by migration or burdened by many refugees or people whose health conditions prevented them from leading a dignified life.

The medical team is comprised of specialists in various fields, largely infectologists, plastic and reconstruction surgeons, gynaecologists and traumatologists, among others.

MEDEVAC had operated on more than 3,774 patients globally with 400 doctors and had carried out 287 medical humanitarian evacuation, 19 supported medical projects, nine participating Czech hospitals and 105 medical teams deployed in 24 countries worldwide.

The Czech Republic since 1993 had deployed large numbers of Czech medical teams abroad to deliver medical services.

Through that, it had since 2015 provided expert training for foreign medical staff and supported medical projects aimed at rebuilding health infrastructure worldwide.

Funded by the Czech Republic, MEDVAC had supported more than 100 surgeries in the Central Region since 2019.

Welcoming the 2023 team, the First Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister of the Interior of the Czech Republic, said the medical gesture was part of moves by the two countries to deepen cooperation and bilateral relations for mutual gain.

He said Ghana had traditionally been one of the Czech Republic’s important partners in West Africa, ever since the diplomatic relations were established in 1957.

Aside the medical gesture, he said he would also build up bilateral cooperation with Ghana in the field of security, as the insurgence situation in the Sahel and the Gulf of Guinea knew no bounds.

Dr. Eric Kofi Ngyedu, the Chief Executive Office of CCTH, said the facility’s quest to bring joy and instill a sense of belongingness in its patients through the delivery of quality healthcare birthed the partnership with MEDEVAC.

According to him, the collaboration, which started in 2020, had up to date, screened 642 people with various medical conditions.

Of the number, 106 complex surgeries had been performed and treatments offered free of charge.

In return, he said the facility had so far received in three tranches US$25,927.00 and GH 479,556.00 from MEDEVAC.

They were a contribution towards the payment of implants, transplants, and surgeries for non-insured patients, as well as other services not covered by the National Health Insurance Scheme.

Mrs. Justina Marigold Assan, the Central Regional Minister in a speech read on her behalf, thanked the government and people of the Czech Republic for their support towards quality health care delivery in the country.

She affirmed the region as the best investment destinations in the country and urged investors in the Czech Republic to consider the area.
