What is the Admissions Test?
The IE Admissions Department has a rigorous selection process and for most programs, one of the steps along is the Admissions Test.
Depending on the program of choice you may take the GMAT, GRE, CFA, CAIA or our own IE Global Admissions test (ieGAT). We encourage you to visit the Admissions Section of the program of your choice for further details and Admission Test requirements. Please consider that not all programs ask for a test, others may accept more than one, while others have a specific test requirement.
WHAT DOES THE ieGAT CONSIST OF?
The exam consists of six different tasks adapted to the program each candidate is interested in. Some of the skills tested include applied numeracy, verbal and numerical comprehension and reasoning as well as logical abstract reasoning.

Questions should be addressed before the exam begins. An IE representative will be present during the entire test session to assist candidates with any issues they might have. Please be aware that once the test starts we will not take questions related to the content of the exam.
No; the ieGAT is designed in such a way that each question and section both analyze different intellectual capacities of the test taker while also factoring in various aspects of the program being applied to.
