June 2016, Dubai – Education startup, SchoolApply, has partnered with Economist GMAT Tutor to bring free GMAT practice to its users. SchoolApply helps students from anywhere in the world connect with educational programs and schools abroad that best match their needs and potential.

This partnership will allow SchoolApply to add even more personalisation to matching students to post-grad programs by integrating these GMAT scores into their search criteria.

The free GMAT simulation test offers an additional level of service to university students by letting them take practice GMAT tests in order to continually improve performance and scores before they submit their final MBA applications.

It's really exciting to be able to offer this GMAT practice test to our users, as it lets us provide an even higher level of service to students who are preparing for graduate school. Normally, this kind of test prep is expensive and difficult to manage, but through our partnership with Economist GMAT Tutor, we're able to let our users take the test as often as they want, and integrate those test scores into their profile to help improve their school and program matches.

- Daniel Bjarne, CEO of SchoolApply.
