GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) is a most popular way of judging a student. It is taken in the English language in the selected GMAT Exam Center. This test gives the business school a guarantee about the student’s caliber to get admission for further studies in the filed of business and management. The GMAT exam gives the student an opportunity to prove his/her abilities and that he/she is able to get admission in a particular university. However, before appearing in this exam and to be successful, knowing each and every element about it is mandatory; read this article to know about the GMAT registration procedure:
Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC) plays an active role in administrative aspects. GMAC announces list of test centers for all candidates from different regions or countries; normally GMAC maintains two lists of centers, one is of USA, CANADA, PUERTO, RICO, whereas the other list of centers is for the rest of the international countries and regions. Therefore it is important to visit the GMAC official website to select the GMAT test center in your home town. The official websites of GMAC is www.mba.com .
Make an Appointment
After the test centre selection the next step is to set up an appointment to give Graduate Management Admission Test. You can visit GMAC official website to know the test center’s contact number. As the GMAC official website is responsible to administer all regional as well as international GMAT registration numbers in their directory; therefore it is very convenient to get it from there.
GMAC accepts online as well as by phone registrations from all over the world. You can easily pay your fee from your credit card (Visa, MasterCard, and American Express). The test total fee of registration is $250 USD, which you have to pay when you apply for registration.
Modification or Rescheduling
After the registration if anyone wants to reschedule his or her test date or time, he / she has to bear an additional fee to the original registration fee (about $40 USD ). This amount can also be deposited in the same manner as payment, but if you are doing this by phone then the number should be the same as you what you have used for the first time while calling to register your name for GMAT. Keep in mind that you can not reschedule your GMAT for more than one year from the original test date and you must reschedule at least 7 days before the test date. If anyone fails to attend the test the $200 USD will be forfeit.
In any case if you want to cancel your test schedule, you need to inform them 7 days before the test date, in such a case you will get a refund amount (presently $80 USD at the time this was writted). However, if you fail to inform before this time whole $200USD will be deducted. You can only cancel online, or by phone, but your same number should be given to cancel.
Retaking the Test
The option of retaking test who failed to pass GMAT is open but it can only be taken one time in a calendar month whereas it can be taken 5 times in one year period. If anyone desires to take the test more than 5 times he/she has to take special permission from the GMAC in written. The application should reach GMAC through mail or email and the addresses can be obtained from the GMAT official websites. www.mab.com or from the contact numbers (+1 (800) 717-GMAT (4628), or (+1 (866) 442-GMAT (4628).
