Am I too early for GMAT preparation?  [#permalink]

Hello!!..
I am now 21 year old and fresh graduated student. I am planning to attend MBA after I finished my 3 year working experiences. After that, I would only be 24. I need over 700 GMAT score and I know myself it would take over 1 year for preparation.
1. Should I start prepare now for GMAT?
2. Is it too young to apply MBA at 24?
3. Is 3 year working experience enough to apply MBA?

Pls kindly answer my questions. I really need the answers to move on.

3 years Professional experience is good enough matched with a 90 percentile GMAT score. And i think after you're done with the GMAT, you can focus on lot of other areas of your profile afterwards. GMAT score is valid for 5 years remember. each year you can add up something or the other to your profile. it's good to plan it early.

GMAT score is valid for 5 years, so no need to bother about the test. First I would suggest you take one mock test, then based on the score you can your preparation approach.
For doing MBA, 3 years experience is more than enough to 90% of B-Schools. Once you complete the GMAT, you can focus on your profile building.
All the best for GMAT

Not really, also you can work on your profile till that time. Give GMAT when you are prepared. Also since you have graduated now, you can give the exam and since you are connected with the studies. If you plan to give the exam after 3-4 years, the contact with studies won’t be there. So it will be bit difficult. To improve your profile work on your leadership skills as well as try to gain some NGO experience and learn any foreign language. All the best for your journey.

Hi Zune,

First of all kudos for your awareness. Great !

1. Yes, you can start preparing for GMAT Now and in your process, many, here at GMAT Club, will help you.
2. Age 24 is just fine, No issue with this until you can show experience and continuous learning coupled with some leadership experience and growth in Job or Role.
3. 3 years experience is enough but more than a number of years it is about the quality of the Experience that counts.

Points to consider: I think your first focus should be on getting a good GMAT Score which satisfies you Or which is best for the colleges which you want to attend.
As GMAT score is valid for five years you will have time to understand the process. Till the time you complete your GMAT you will acquire at least one year of work experience and this will help you in understanding what POST MBA role you want to target. this understanding will help you in selecting the colleges which fits your post mba target. SO go for GMAT and all other parts will come later.

All the best. !

Hi Zune,

Welcome to gmatclub!

It's great that you're asking this question now. Many non-native speakers find it difficult to improve GMAT verbal.

So, one thing you can do now is to start reading in English everyday. It will help with each part of GMAT verbal.

Good luck!
