About the ieGAT

The IE Global Admissions Test (ieGAT) was developed as a means of determining a candidate’s ability to make decisions under pressure. The exam is different from many standardised tests in two ways:

  • It is aimed at an international audience, with a diversity of educational backgrounds and does not favor a particular education system or area of study.
  • It is a practical exam, presenting participants with more real life situations

The ieGAT consists of three types of tasks: verbal, numerical and diagrammatic. Questions are given randomly and are not in any order or type of question – requiring the participant to switch from one type of thinking to another. There are three main sections:

  • Comprehension and reasoning.  This section consists of text which must be read and understood. Each text block is followed by two questions regarding the text. This portion tests the student’s understanding of written English in a professional context.
  • Comprehension, reasoning and calculation. This section consists of graphs and data analysis. Advanced mathematics is not required. Rather, participants need to think quickly and process large amounts of information and quick calculations.
  • Logical-abstract reasoning with symbols. In this section, participants take a predetermined shape through a series of modifications to determine the final product. This section requires strong visualisation skills and the ability to maintain track of multiple images at a single time.

The test takes 80 minutes. A practice of two questions of each type is included prior to the test with an IE representative as part of the testing process.
