Online GMAT Rules

If this is your first GMAT online exam, make sure you know the process:

  1. Check in 15 minutes early.
  2. The proctor will perform a 360 degree room scan via webcam.
  3. All additional electronics must be powered off/out of the room: phones, computers, ipads, tablets, smart devices, watches, etc. Also- no headphones!
  4. Prepare your whiteboard* and markers. No physical paper products are allowed: notebooks, books, papers, pens. If you are planning to use the electronic whiteboard, keep in mind to practice before the exam.
  5. No eating, chewing gum, smoking, or drinking anything besides a transparent glass of water.
  6. Bathroom breaks or leaving the computer station for any reason is not allowed. You will have two 8 minute breaks so take care to plug in your computer and use the restroom before you begin the check-in process.
