Hi,

I'm changing my last name (got married :)). I'm Indian, so per law I'll have to get new passport with the new name. I've taken GMAT before and wish to take it again.
I've not scheduled new GMAT test yet.

What happenes to my GMAC profile if I present new passport while scheduling test? Will my older score show on my profile? Do I need to carry both passports at the time of exam?

Experts, please help!

I think you have to take the passport that shows the 'name' you mentioned while booking an appointment at GMAC. Passport is an idenfication proof. Good luck!

I scheduled my GMAT with the title Mrs. However we do jot have any titles in Passport.My confirmation mail states my name witha title. Also I do not have a last name,My full name is given against the GIVEN NAME field in passport. But in my GMAT profile I have entered my first name and last name.I have requested the customer service to clmake the necessary changes.

Will I get a confirmation mail with the changes made?Will it cause any problem?I have 1 month for my exam..

You can call them on phone and discuss the issue.

The first and last name is not an issue ; As long as the Given Name matches the Full Name on the GMAT profile, it should not be a problem irrespective of your marital

status.

If your given name in the passport is the same as the full name on the GMAT profile, the you are good to go.
Still as a precaution, you can call the representatives to get a better understanding.
