I am an intending GMAT test taker and in my research, I found out that one may be penalized for wrong spellings and the likes, which brings me to my question...

I schooled in an Anglophone African country and I was trained to write with British spellings all through...

Now, for the AWA essay, will my 'neighbour' be acceptable instead of the American 'neighbor' or 'penalized' instead of 'penalised'.

This is important to know early considering that GMAT may be monitor spellings in the essay.

Thank you

The GMAT does look at your spelling.
The standard recommendation is to use the American English since that's where GMAT is from and will be the safest bet. However, I think British is passable and not considered wrong since that's the "original."
