Attempting GMAT in January [#permalink]

Hello guys,

I’m a computer science engineering graduate from NIT Raipur (2017 Batch).

I got placed at Capgemini during the campus placements, but did not join the company after college got over because I’ve no interest in this field.

Initially I thought I’d be helping out my dad in the family business, but now I feel it’s too soon to do that. Now I’m stuck in a very tricky situation. Because it’s November already and I’m planning to attempt GMAT in the last week of December.

Is it too late to do that?
I’m confident about my preparation but will the colleges accept my application?
Also can you guys please explain what’s the difference between different admission rounds?
I’ll be applying for Masters in Management programmes in Europe.

Thank you.

Hi Ahumne,

You are not really too late in the admission cycle, as there is still 2 months to go for Round 2.

If you start your prep now and give the GMAT by let's say mid-Jan, you will still be able to make it for the Round 2 deadlines of most EU B-Schools.
Just make sure you work on your application in parallel to GMAT, because you won't have time otherwise.

Basically, there are two types of rounds, fixed deadlines (R1,R2,R3....) with each passing deadline the competition intensifies.
Second there are rolling deadlines, which are first come first serve.
Hence in either case its better to apply early.

This post should help you get your timeline sorted and put your best foot forward for the applications
