You need to take GMAT at least 20 days before the application deadline (so that your official score is available to the target schools). Earlier is better since it gives one more time to solely focus on the app. But you also need to feel prepared for the test. So it is a balancing act and you yourself will need to take a call on when to schedule the test.

Re: Best time to take gmat exam [#permalink] New post 12 Oct 2013, 01:55
I am targeting MIS program from US B-schools, as they also take GMAT score, for fall session 2014. then is it ok to give GMAT in November last week or December 1 week?
Actually i am not sure whether the universities will consider my application if i have given GMAT in November or December for fall 2014.

Berkeley University has written that preferably GMAT and TOEFL should be taken by October for the following year Fall session.
I am thinking to book GMAT and TOEFL in Nov or Dec.
Due to my job nature i was not able study and got this late.

Please help asap.


Many thanks

Hello,
I will advise you to first of all to take your time to prepare well for the GMAT exam. Do not rush things because you have a submission deadline to meet. Bear in mind that it is the test result/score that counts after all. Before you go in for the GMAT test, be convinced within yourself that you are adequately prepared for the examination. In any case you are advised to take the GMAT long before your application deadline. Cheers

Hi,

I am Meghna. I need some help and views on the same matter.I am planning to take Gmat on Nov 1st or October 31st ( 2 months interval from now).I am targeting all good U.S, Canada and Indian Bschools. My question is Nov 1st suitable date for gmat. I dont want to rush the test to meet the deadlines but at the same time I dont want to miss the deadlines as well. Should I choose an earlier date to take the exam? or will be able to apply to most of the good colleges, if I take it on Nov 1st.

I would very much appreciate your reply. Hoping some one can provide little guidance here.

Thanks
Meghna

A few 750+ scores should put you in the right frame.

Depends which round you are applying. You mentioned June -- are you applying R3? Try to account for the possibility of a retake. If you do not score well and need to do a retake, this make affect your scheduling. If you retake GMAT a few months later at the time when you were supposed to work on application essays, this is going to add a lot of stress to you. So plan ahead of that. Figure out your roadmap, account for risks for certain key parts, and adjust that roadmap so it works for you in keeping stress to a manageable level.

Hope that helps.
