The GMAC announced earlier today that beginning July 11, 2017, test takers will be able to have some control over the section order in which they wish to take the GMAT. The three choices test takers will have are:
We’re all for innovation (and the competition that generally spurs it) and increased options and this is certainly a favorable development for GMAT test takers. If it helps alleviate some of the anxiety inherent with these standardized tests, we’re certainly all for it.
However, we can’t help but wonder why test takers only have those three options instead of seeing a screen with the four sections and then assigning their own order to each section. (Would it be that hard to ensure the “1”, “2”, “3” and “4” keys were each used exactly once before allowing the test taker to advance to the next screen?)
