No GMAT center (currently) in my country! [#permalink] New post 28 Dec 2011, 02:03
Guys, good day!

I live in Bangladesh. Previously, here was one Test-Center. However, now I don't see any test-center details for my country.

I am whole-heartedly preparing myself to take the GMAT in two months of time.

Do you think, I should stop preparing myself until the another new test-center is assigned for my country. Or, what I might do in this situation? Please, advise!

Thanks.

I am in a similar situation like you. In my country due to some privacy law, the GMAT is not offered in the last several months. The people from the test center told me they anticipate that the test will be offered again very soon. How soon, nobody can tell.

Most likely I will have to travel to one of the neighbor countries and take the test there. In the worst case, I will have to drive 5 hours. However, I plan on arriving the day before so I do not get tired from getting up really early and driving. So I would advise you to travel to the nearest test center outside of your country and take the test there. It will be more expensive but you will not depend on the availability of the test in your country.

If this option is too expensive in your scenario, then it would probably be better to postpone studying unless you are willing to study throughout the whole time. And that is very hard to do because chances are you will lose motivation since you cannot tell for sure when will the test be available.

p.s. when you register for a test, make sure the name you put in GMAT registration form is the same as your name in the passport.

Sorry to hear about this.
Best strategy is to probably contact GMAC - have you reached out to them yet?
