MBA News: GMAC Posts Q&A Relating to Scoretop Scandal

Many of you have been following the ongoing battle between GMAC and, and now the potential battle between GMAC and the students who accessed the website. Yesterday, BusinessWeek posted a set of questions and answers provided by GMAC. In short, GMAC wants GMAT test takers to know that:

  1. GMAC will investigate and prosecute any individual or company offering real GMAT questions to the public in order to protect the integrity of the test and defend its copyright.
  2. GMAC is now focusing its punitive actions on test takers who shared actual questions and/or paid to access a bank of such questions. It is too soon to know what punishment will be levied and when.
  3. Test takers who did not pay to access the site, but visited the sites free content have nothing to worry about.
  4. Test takers gained very little by accessing the data, as the GMAC question bank is enormous and the odds of seeing the same ones on the test were quite remote. Nonetheless, GMAC has subsequently removed the questions found on’s site from the pool.

We will keep readers apprised of developments….
