Over 80% of the pregnant women experience nausea and vomiting especially during first trimester of pregnancy. These symptoms of nausea and vomiting are commonly called as ‘Morning sickness’. But the term ‘Morning Sickness’ is a misnomer as the nausea and vomiting can be triggered at any time during the day.

We believe, that GMAT testing program (for each mathematical and verbal modules) starts off with a moderate set of questions, and depending on your performance in that set of questions, gives you the next set. On the GMAT test, if you answered the first set mostly correct, you are given a set of questions from a question bank with a higher difficulty. If you fail to answer most of the questions correctly, from the first set given to you, you are then given questions from a lower difficulty level.

You have 75 minutes each to complete both modules.
