GMAT Exam Dates in Peru

Unlike some paper based exams, the GMAT is computer based.

Some even offer the exam every day of the year.  However, some test centers are not open on Sundays and national holidays. For example, most college-based test centers might be closed for extended periods around holidays. For precise testing dates in Peru, please visit test-maker website – https://www.mba.com/.

Politics

According to the constitution that came into force on December 29, 1993 (revised several times), Peru is a presidential republic. The head of state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces is the president, who is directly elected for a period of 5 years (re-election possible once); if none of the candidates achieve an absolute majority, a runoff election is necessary. The President appoints the Prime Minister (chairman of the Council of Ministers) and the other members of the Cabinet and can dissolve Parliament if it hinders the work of the government.

The legislature lies with the unicameral parliament (Congreso), whose 130 members are elected for 5 years. Voting is compulsory for citizens between the ages of 18 and 70. Failure to vote is punishable by a fine, but voter turnout in the 2020 and 2021 elections was only between 70 and 75%.

After a government crisis of several years in which the President and Congress faced each other, Pedro Castillo from the Marxist-Leninist party Perú Libre has been the winner of the presidential election on April 11, 2021 since July 2021. He took office on July 28, 2021, the 200th anniversary of Peru’s independence.

National symbols

The national flag was decreed on February 25th, 1825 by S. Bolívar. It is red-white-red striped vertically. As the national flag, it bears the coat of arms in the middle of the white stripe.

The coat of arms was also introduced in 1825. The gold-rimmed shield is divided and split in the upper half, the dividing lines are made of gold. In the blue box heraldic seeing left is vicuna, in a silver field a cinchona tree, in the red lower half of the shield a golden cornucopia, a symbol of the natural resources of the country. A wreath of holm oak leaves hovers over the shield. The shield has a state and a national flag on the right and left.

The national holiday is July 28th. It commemorates the proclamation of independence in 1821. Check a2zcamerablog to see Peru Tour Plan.

Military

The total strength of the conscription army (two years of service) is 114,000, that of the paramilitary forces (national police) about 77,000 men. The army (74,000 soldiers) is divided into four military regions and comprises one paratrooper and special forces brigade, five infantry, three tank and mechanized brigades, two motorized infantry and mountain brigades, other independent combat support units and the presidential guard regiment. The navy has 23,000 and the air force 17,000 men.

Law

The head of the judiciary is the Supreme Court (Corte Suprema de Justicia). It is composed of chambers for civil, criminal, constitutional and social matters. There is also a chamber for terrorist offenses. Subordinate to the Supreme Court are higher, provincial and peace courts, which have special jurisdictions, inter alia. for work, agricultural and family matters. The Constitutional Court (Tribunal Constitucional) is responsible for the control of laws and the protection of fundamental rights.

Education

Attending the state (but mostly poorly equipped schools) is free. Schooling is compulsory from 6 to 15 years of age, but due to the lack of teachers it cannot be enforced everywhere (especially in rural areas). Attending the one-year compulsory pre-school is followed by the five-year primary school. The secondary schools, which are also five years old, are divided after three years into a general education part and vocational trains. Peru has numerous private and state universities, art schools, and other higher education institutions.
