But for some reason I remember learning in my High School that a right angled triangle ABC is right angled at B. If it was right angled at C, then the triangle will be referred to as ACB. Does that convention not apply to the GMAT?
That's not a convention I've ever heard of. Don't assume that on the GMAT, at least.
