An MBA entrance exam (or admissions test) is often required as part of the admission process.
When an admissions test is required, it is usually the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT).
Although it is rare, some business schools might accept previous Graduate Records Examination (GRE) scores.
Of course, there is always the reality that a school does not require any type of entrance exam to be admitted.
When required, the exam results will likely play a significant role in the acceptance criteria.

If an MBA admissions test is required, the school will factor your test scores into the admissions process. Some schools have no minimum score requirements. You simply compete with the scores of other applicants. Other schools have formulas that combine your exam score with your GPA to reach a certain acceptable score. Check the school for details.
While the MBA entrance exam can be a big part of admissions, it is not the only criteria. Don't worry if you do not get the highest score. Admission committees look at the whole package. Make your application package the best it can be and your chances of acceptance will greatly increase.
