Kaplan Test Prep Renews Partnership With Pearson VUE To Offer Exclusive “Official Test Day Experience” For Aspiring MBAs, Providing The Most Realistic GMAT® Exam Practice Available

Stocks in this article: GHC

Aspiring MBA students preparing for the GMAT® exam with Kaplan Test Prep will retain exclusive permission to take a realistic practice exam in a Pearson Professional Center, the network of test centers that administers the actual GMAT® exam, thanks to a renewed agreement between Kaplan and Pearson VUE. Under the terms of the agreement, Kaplan students can participate in "The Official Test Day Experience" — a practice exam in the same testing environment as the actual GMAT® exam to experience a dry run under realistic test day conditions. Kaplan has offered its students the Experience since 2004, and exclusively through Pearson VUE since 2006.

Kaplan, a leading provider of test preparation for the GMAT® exam, is the only test prep provider whose students are allowed to sit for a practice exam in the actual GMAT® exam testing facilities. Kaplan GMAT® test prep students have a chance to experience their exam environment in advance from start to finish — from check-in, to security procedures, to computer setup, to lighting, to seating arrangements, to break procedures, to everything in between. The Experience is available to Kaplan students in North America, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Great Britain.

"Renewing our partnership with Pearson VUE provides our students with a distinct competitive advantage. Familiarity with the testing environment helps lower exam-related stress and boost confidence, which is key to success on test day. Because admissions officers tell us that a low GMAT® exam score is the biggest application killer, every point on the exam can make a difference in a highly competitive environment," said Brian Carlidge, executive director of pre-business and pre-graduate programs, Kaplan Test Prep.

Bob Whelan, President and CEO of Pearson VUE, said: "Having the opportunity to experience a very realistic practice test can make a crucial difference to the preparation and success, and therefore future careers and lives, of students taking the GMAT® exam. We are delighted that Kaplan Test Prep has shown its continued trust in Pearson VUE to deliver an excellent computer-based testing service by renewing our partnership."
