Hey, so I'm planning on taking the GMAT next month (September 2018) on rather the 1st or the 7th, and I know the score is valid for 5 years. If I plan on applying in Fall 2022 for a program starting in September 2023, does it matter whether I take it on the 1st or 7th or just the fact that I take it in September?

If that was confusing, please let me know and I'll try to explain again. Thanks in advance!

Hi harshit3,

Your GMAT Score needs to be 'valid' during the application period for whatever Schools you plan to apply to (so the School's Admissions Committee can log in and review/confirm your Scores). Thus, if you take your GMAT in September 2018, your Score would be valid in September 2022 - since that would be just 4 years after the Score was generated and you would not have to worry about your Score 'expiring' as you were applying.

Hi harshit3,

I agree that if you plan to take the GMAT this September and apply in 2022, your GMAT will still be valid. If you need any advice regarding your upcoming GMAT, feel free to reach out.

Good luck!
