Dear Leah,
Has anyone ever allowed to take the test 9th/10th time in case her/his request has been found genuine and legitimate?

Regards,
Pradeep(AD)

Hi Pradeep,

I think we can agree that Leah has already answered this question in her last post.

To reiterate: unless you can convince an interested business school to contact GMAC by letter or email on your behalf to request a special exemption, in which case you might be allowed to take the exam a 9th and final time (yes, this has occurred in the past), you cannot take the GMAT more than 8 times.

Hello!

We have had business schools that are interested in candidates attending their programs, reach out to us on the candidates behalf (via letter/email), for taking the GMAT Exam an additional time. If you are interested in attending a university and they have expressed interest in you, they may draft an email/letter to send to us, and request that you take the GMAT Exam again. Unfortunately an appeal on the basis of just wanting to take the GMAT Exam again, will not be sufficient for the request. You may also bring this up with Pearson VUE in your region by visiting: mba.com/contactus.

Thanks!
Leah

Hi

OfficialGMAT

I am trying to install GMAT Exam Pack -1 and GMAT Question Pack -1 but I am not able to do so.

Can you do it from the backend? I have the exam after seven days!

It would be great if someone can help urgently!

Thanks

Windows, Mac, Linux, or Xbox?
What platform are you using? How have you tried to install?

Hi bb

It is Mac OS 10.13.3

First, I downloaded the '.gsp' file then clicked on the 'install additional content'. It got installed but later when i gave the licese number, it is showing that 'license already used. As per response from the mail from gmac@asknet.com, i tried to uninstall and then reinstall the gmatprep software but no luck.

My gmat prep looks like this now. 'Exam pack -2' is showing as installed but 'exam pack 1' and 'question pack' are having the license issue IMO.

Thanks

Sorry about this popping up on the weekend. You want to chat with the mba.com support about this. Here:
Email: gmatprep@mba.com
Phone (US and Canada): +1 866 739-0238 (toll free)
Phone (international): +1 703 668-9602

This seems to be a licensing issue. You can try uninstalling and reinstalling the GSP files we have on GMAT Club, in case they are better (though I doubt it will make a difference - look for download links in the far right hand column) https://gmatclub.com/forum/it-s-back-ge ... 16994.html

Hi bb

Thanks for the suggestion. Like you expected, the 'downloaded file' from the GMATclub.com, is same, downloaded earlier. The same error, 'license number has already been used' popped up when i tried installing.

I had already escalated the issue in few of their email ids (gmatprep@mba.com, store@mba.com, customercare@mba.com) got an 'acknowledgment mail'. I am waiting for their further revert on this as they have mentioned in the mail.

Hope mba.com gets this sorted early. Delay is only hurting my plan of study as I have altered my study schedule because of this 'glitch'.
Can't say that 'they' are quick in response and or customer friendly!

Hello,

I believe Customer Care may have already gotten to you via email, but I wanted to post this here as well:

Unfortunately, the Mac OS version that you are using is not supported by our GMATPrep Software, and is causing your activation complications. Do you have access to a computer that meets our technical requirements? Please see below:

System requirements – Windows

• 2.33GHz or faster x86-compatible processor or Intel® Atom™ 1.6GHz or faster processor for netbooks
• Microsoft® Windows 7® with Service Pack 1, Windows 8.1®, or Windows 10®
• 512MB of RAM (1GB recommended)
• Screen resolution of 1024x768 or higher
• Your user account must have permission to install applications (admin rights)

System requirements – Mac OS

• Intel Core™ Duo or faster processor
• Mac OS X v10.9, v10.10, or v10.11. Mac OS 10.12 and 10.13 are not supported by the GMATPrep Free Software or the extension packs. Please use a computer that meets the technical requirements.
• 512MB of RAM (1GB recommended)
• Screen resolution of 1024x768 or higher
• Your user account must have permission to install applications (admin rights)


As listed on our mba.com/store under technical requirements for the GMATPrep Software, Mac 10.12 and 10.13 are not compatible. When a system is not compatible with our software, GMATPrep cannot perform successfully or normally, and will cause complications like what you experienced on your computer. You are seeing that message of "License Already Used" because there is only one activation code needed per computer/operating system. The fact that it is not accepting the code, or keeping the pack active stems from the incompatibility of your computer.

Many candidates have reached out to us with these same complications seen on an unsupported computer, and we are able to replicate this sporadic behavior as well. On a compatible computer, these issues are not seen, and candidates are able to use the software as intended. Our Product Team is aware of the non-compatibility, and are working on making GMATPrep compatible with the newer Mac OS versions.

I apologize for any inconvenience.

Regards,
Leah

Hi bapism07,

I don't think that the OS is the main issue here. I'm running Mac OS 10.13.3 and am having no problems running GMATPrep, so long as I made sure to install the GMATPrep software before upgrading to 10.13.3.

I can confirm that if you download and try to install the current version of GMATPrep on a computer running 10.13.3, you will double-click on the installer, and absolutely nothing will happen. However, if you can find a copy of the actual GMAT prep application from another Mac computer, and copy it to your applications folder, then it will work just fine.

I do get this error message when I activate an Exam or Question Pack, but it still works fine afterward:

Image

If the software says "license already used" when you try to activate an Exam or Question Pack, then this suggests that you have already installed the software on the maximum of 3 computers, and would have to deactivate the license on one of your other computers before activating it on another computer.

However, this does not necessarily mean that you can't install the free GMATPrep software on more than 3 computers. It's just that (paid) Exam Packs 1 and 2, and Question Pack 1 only allow you to install the packs on a maximum of 3 computers at a time.

Thank you for the suggestion. I had an issue with the license numbers (for qp and ep-1). Luckily, GMATprep customer care dept. got the license issue resolved. Now all the bought products are functioning properly on my PC.

I am having the same problem. Can someone from GMAC help me out with this?? It seems illogical that now my gmatprep exam pack 1 suddenly won't work on my system when it was working before. Simply asking me to find another computer to take it on is not an adequate solution.

Hello,

Are you using the same Mac 10.13 computer? Unfortunately at this time GMATPrep is not compatible with that version. We are working on providing a web based GMATPrep version, that will be accessible to more candidates. Since this version is not available as of yet, the best bet for accessing GMATPrep is with a compatible computer. I completely understand your frustrations, and we are just as eager for this new platform!

Hi Leah,

Kudos to you and the rest of the GMAC on the upcoming debut of the new, 23-minute shorter GMAT with 11 fewer experimental questions, starting April 16th. It is my opinion that these changes should make for an easier, fairer GMAT test-taking experience overall.

I heard from a GMAC webinar in India that the updated GMATPrep software, which comes out by April 30, will have the following balance of question types:

Reading Comprehension: 13-14 questions / 4 passages
Sentence Correction: 12-13 questions
Critical Reasoning: 9-10 questions
Problem Solving: 17-18 questions
Data Sufficiency: 13-14 questions


Image
source: AjiteshArun

Could you kindly confirm whether this is true? As you know, this is a noticeably different proportion of Verbal question types from the current GMATPrep software (version 2.5.327), where Sentence Corrections are currently the most common question type, as they are on the real GMAT.

For comparison's sake, here is the current proportion of question types on the Verbal section of GMATPrep: 17 SC, 13 RC, 11 CR. If SC has truly gone from the most common question type to the second most common question type, then this is a fact that test-takers deserve to know before the new exam debuts on April 16th.

Image

I have also heard that the GMATPrep tests and Question Pack 1 will be moving to a subscription-only model. Could you please confirm whether this is true, and if so, when does this change go into effect?

Finally: how, if at all, does this new subscription model affect students who already purchased those exams / question packs?

Thank you,

-Brian

Hello!
Thanks for the kudos! We have been working on this for some time now, and I'm excited that it's now available!

The new GMATPrep platform will reflect the new GMAT Exam shortened length, along with some new features. The screen shot that you have, is simply showing the breakdown that is for the GMAT Official Practice Exams only, and is not reflective of the real GMAT exam. For the actual GMAT Exam, unfortunately we cannot specific information on the number of sub section question types.

As soon as GMAT Official Practice Exams reflecting the shortened Quantitative and Verbal section lengths notification has been sent, there will be information regarding the extension packs and how to use them with the new platform. There are no changes to the questions formats, the content tested, or the scoring methodology on the GMAT exam. In addition to this, the number of questions and section time has been reduced proportionally, so the average time per question in each section has not changed.The current GMATPrep practice exams are still a useful and relevant study tool since they continue to be reflective of the questions, amount of time per question, and scoring on the actual GMAT exam.

Regards,
Leah

Hi OfficialGMAT
I want to know about the technical requirements for the New GMAT Official Practice Exams.
As per the technical requirements mentioned on the website https://www.mba.com/india/store/store-catalog/gmat-preparation/gmat-official-practice-exams-3-and-4.aspx, Window 8+ is required for these New GMAT Official Practice Exams.

Hey guys,

I am an international applicant and am presently in the US.
Was curious to know if incase I am through with my prep during my stay here and wish to take the test at one of the centers in the US, can I?

If I'm allowed to, can there be a problem if I need to take the test again back home or any other things I should know in such a scenario.

On a general note, is it advisable to take it only in one's country of current residence or is it indifferent?

P.S. I donot intend to in anyway misuse my visa, just in case. Don't want to unnecessary complicate my visa situation. On the other hand, I think this should not be a problem but I'm not a 100% sure.

Hey darkstar77 ,

There is no restriction on the location where you should be giving your exam. If you choose India, you can give exam at any of the 5 locations. Similarly, if you choose United States you can choose any of the 5 (or whatsoever is the count) locations.

There won't be any problem if you give your next attempt back in India.

What matters THE MOST is the final score rather than where you are giving the exam.

All the best :)
