Kaplan Test Prep extends computer-based GMATⓇ simulation exam agreement with Pearson VUE

BLOOMINGTON, MN, Nov. 24, 2016 – Kaplan Test Prep has chosen to extend its partnership of over a decade with global computer-based testing leader Pearson VUE.

The new multi-year agreement means that Pearson VUE will continue to exclusively deliver an offering that helps prepare students for the GMATⓇ exam, the most widely taken exam for business school admissions.

Brian Carlidge, executive director of pre-business and pre-graduate programs at Kaplan Test Prep, said: “Pearson VUE not only has an impressive test center network, which means the convenience of local test centers for our candidates, but also officially delivers the GMATⓇ exam itself as well.”

Bob Whelan, managing director of Pearson VUE, said: “We have a longstanding relationship with Kaplan Test Prep and I am pleased that, through our continued partnership, we will help students prepare for the GMATⓇ exam with a potentially positive effect on their lives and careers.”

The Practice GMAT test simulates the GMATⓇ exam experience, allowing students to be put through their paces before sitting the real test, which is used by universities to narrow down the candidate selection for prestigious graduate business degrees.
