GMAT Test Dates

I am often asked about GMAT test dates and what dates GMAT is available in 2010 or 2011 - GMAT is an adaptive computer-based test that is administered can be taken any time! In contrast to LSAT or CFA or other tests, GMAT is administered all year round; to take it, you just need to register on www.mba.com, pay $250 fee and off you go - often you can get a spot within a few days but some dates you may have to book in advance (October, November, December, and January) when a lot of applicants are taking or retaking the GMAT. What Is the Best Date to Take the GMAT Test? Usually, the best gmat test date is at least a month before the application date or business school deadline (the earlier the better actually). You want to have at least a month so that you could retake the GMAT just in case your score is not good enough. Official GMAT Policy allows taking the GMAT 5 times a year but at least 31 days apart. For example if one of your GMAT test dates was June 10th, you cannot take the GMAT again until July 12th (must be 31 days apart). So, if you took the test on June 10th and your business school deadline is July 1st, you won't have enough time to retake. How Far in Advance Must I set my GMAT Test Dates? First of all, you should verify this. However, most schools will allow you to submit your application as long as you took the GMAT before the deadline. For example, if your application is due midnight of July 1st (23:59 on July 1st is the last minute to submit), your GMAT date can be as late as July 1st. Usually it takes 2 weeks for the electronic score record to show up at school (due to AWA grading) but as long as your scores match, your application will be considered valid Can I cancel or reschedule my GMAT Appointment? You can change your test date but there is a penalty involved. You will lose$50 to cancel a week out or the entire $250 if your test date is less than a week away. If you apply for a refund more than 7 days out, you will get$80 back or if applied within 7 days of your GMAT test date, you will get nothing. Thus within the 7-day period, it is usually recommended to take the test even if you are sick, not feeling well, etc.

When I get the results from the GMAT?
After the test is over, you will presented with a confirmation screen with your test scores; at check out, you will receive a printout confirmation (unofficial score report). About 1-3 weeks after your test date, you will get your official score either in the mail or online (depending on how you chose to receive it). The unofficial and official scores will be the same and are always the same; the only difference is that your official score will contain your AWA score as well.

If anyone has any other questions about GMAT test dates, please post them here.

bb,
I am planning to get enrolled in a business school in 2014 instead of 2013. However, I am still planning to sit for GMAT in early 2012 (before June).
Am I taking the test too early? Will your reply be different if you also consider the new integrated reasoning part to be included in GMAT from June 2012?
Thank you.

Most people suggest to take it BEFORE the change (mostly due to lack of clarity about IR - GMAC has not released much except some practice questions)

Hi Varalaxmi,
Since you are a woman and don't belong to the typical IT industry, you stand a good chance to get into ISB even if you do not have 700. Its true.
GMAT is one aspect of the application that's looked into. Work Experience, Extra curriculars, CSR work, etc also matter.

Best would be to go thru the diagnostic test in the OG and practise a few questions from all the areas in Verbal and Quant that are tested. Then download the gmat prep software from mba.com and take a mock test. You would know your base level and you would know much you need to prepare to reach your target score.

Hope this helps. If it does, please press kudos ( on the left below my handle 'Sachin9') )
Please ask if you need any clarification or if you have any doubt whatsoever.

Hi BB ,

Does changing your GMAT date reflect on your report ? If so , is it really advisable in terms of raising more questions in the possible future interviews .

Kind regards ,

It usually takes 20 days for our official score to reach the school selected. However if i give my test on oct 16 and the deadline is jan 15, do i have to submit my application form also within 20 days or i can do it anytime before jan 15 deadline?
