In my passport, my date of birth was mentioned as 04/10/1993. The format was not exclusively mentioned there. The format they actually entered is Date/month/Year, but they did not exclusively mention it. I can see this is how Indian passport use to be.

Will this be a problem, when the exam center verify?

Hey!

This is NOT a problem.
On the gmac site it is in MM-DD-YY
On Indian passports it is in DD-MM-YY.
The test centre will be aware of this. You don't have to worry about it!

Also, if u are still worried or if any other thing regarding ur registration is a worry then scan ur details page on the passport and email it to the gmac team. Ask them to verify the details. They will change it if anything is needed.

Good luck!

Hi prav04,

Are you saying that you mis-entered your birth date when signing up for the GMAT?

No.
On the gmac site, the format for DOB is in MM-DD-YY
On Indian passports, THE FORMAT for DOB is in DD-MM-YY, but in Indian passport the format was not exclusively mentioned.

So when I enter my DOB in GMAT website, it ends up as 10/04/1994 (Month/Date/Year), but in my Indian passport, it is 04/10/1994(Date/Month/Year) (But in passport the format was not mentioned). This is the problem

Hi Shsank,

From your message, it's not clear whether you're put in some significant study time already or you are just beginning your GMAT studies. If you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can take 2 for free at www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

prav04, this is for you. Probably, OfficialGMAT mistakenly knock 'Shsank'.
