Hey mokshaykumar400@gmail.com ,

Personally, I would not recommend to quit your job to prepare for GMAT. This may add another reason for a rejection if not well explained.

But I could see that your work is very demanding. In that case, you can always look for another less demanding job. Make sure the new job is related to the work you do and is directly linked with your goals so that you can explain the same in your application.

All the best :-)

I am not an expert and also have problem with investing time in Gmat. But I rather invest in something to get better than stuck at one place. (If you don't feel you will get better at your current work, I think you will be okay)

if your job is very demanding, like mine. it's okay to quit. because continuing the current way is not leading anywhere.And there would be no other thing at all if you can't study.
But make sure you get a new job within a month or two, the gap shouldn't be long.

I strongly urge you to get another job lined up first that is less demanding as someone has suggested above.

It's easier to get a job when you have a job and if it ends up being a situation where you are long-term unemployed you'll be flagged as a high-risk candidate by the admissions committee and that will decrease your chances of being accepted.

And so in that case quitting your job to improve your test score might or might not work out and is not going to result in an admit.

Change the job but just don't expose yourself to an unlimited period of unemployment...this is an application killer unfortunately.

Find a job that's more related to what you want to do and one that requires less physical effort and allows you time to do the GMAT.

I will also offer my most successful clients - as a former GMAT verbal tutor of 18 years - woke up ONE hour earlier and spent an hour studying everyday. Giving their best energy to this before the day was over.
