When Should I Take the GMAT?
A study of successful applicants reflected that the key time to take the GMAT is 3 months prior to your target business school’s admission deadline. If you plan to take the test online or offline, MBA.com allows you to book an appointment 6 months in advance. If planning half a year ahead intimates you, 2-3 months is an acceptable time to prepare for your upcoming exam.
Typical Admission Deadlines
Most business schools have three different application cycles:
- Round 1: September/October
- Round 2: Beginning of January
- Round 3: April
Keeping these deadlines in mind will help you allocate enough time to prepare accordingly, book GMAT exam dates, and send out score reports to your target schools. To prepare with a more calculated study schedule, check out our preparation courses.
