So we are sitting at 8th of January 2018, with 3rd deadline roughly a month far and and the 4th about 3 months, just want to know when will be the best time and strategy to take the GMAT test. I am a Chartered accountant and BCOM Hons. by qualification with over 5 years of workex (including regular internships) and have only little knowledge about how GMAT works. I spent about last 20 days going through the Manhattan material and felt like it was manageable with a little hardwork. I am just targetting 3 colleges HEC Paris, EDHEC and ESSEC for msc finance (Will not go in any other college as I have a stable job, its just a dream to study in the best colleges of world nothing else.). Any help shall be really appreciated.

Hi hardik2991! Thanks for reaching out :-)

The answer to your questions really depends on where you're at now. I'd recommend taking a practice test now to see what your score is. If it's not too far off from a score that you would be happy with, then I'd recommend taking the exam in about a month or so. That way, you'd still have time to retake it if really necessary, and since it sounds like you found the material manageable, a month might be plenty of time to prepare you for the test. On the other hand, if your score is significantly lower than one you'd like, I'd recommend giving yourself a little additional time, and taking the exam in 1.5-2 months. By analyzing the results of your practice test, you will also be able to get a sense of the subject areas that you should focus on during this time :-)

I hope this is helpful! Feel free to share any additional details, once you've taken a practice test, for more specific guidance if you'd like :-)

-Carolyn
