Validity of GMAT score for applying in B-Schools [#permalink]

Hi All ,

I have a general question about the validity of the GMAT score. If i take GMAT within couple of months and then think of applying may be after 2 years or so, then does all the Schools accept my score.

Will ISB consider my score after 2 years if i took my GMAT now in 2009?

Regards
Gaurav

As BB noted GMAT scores are good for up to 5 years.

I have heard however, that if you wrote your GMAT >3 years ago some schools might ask you to rewrite them to prove your logic skills are around the same level they were when you wrote the GMAT for the first time.

it sounds a little normal: 5 years is a too long period of validity.
But has no one heard about a new GMAT which could appear soon ?
