In order for the GMAT test to be used in the selection process, you must:

  1. send the GMAT Official Score Report to Uppsala University from the test centre -  use the code for the Programme you apply to when asked for,
  2. upload the test results to University Admissions.

Note that it might take a couple of weeks for the test center to send verification of the Official Score Report to Uppsala University. The documents must be received by the University no later than the last day to submit supporting documents. So make sure you have foresight when you do the test.

The GMAT test result cannot be older than five years on the last day of application. 

If you apply to more than one of our Programmes, you only have to use the code for one of the Programmes when you send in the Score Report from the test centre.
