Tips For Registering For GMAT 2024

While choosing the right GMAT exam date slot, here are some key points to keep in mind to ace this test:

GMAT Prep Time: Gauge your GMAT readiness. Typically, you need around 2-6 months (depending on your skill and aptitude) to prepare adequately. Choose a date that gives you enough prep time.

B-School Application Deadlines: MBA colleges mean business when it comes to deadlines. Your GMAT score should land in their laps before they shut the application door. Dive into research mode to align your exam date with your dream institute’s deadlines.

Application Document Hustle: Remember, your GMAT score is just the tip of the iceberg. Get your resume, statements of purpose, recommendation letters, and those admission essays ready. This isn’t a last-minute cram session; it’s a well-planned expedition.

GMAT Application Fee

The GMAT registration fee costs USD 250, which is roughly equivalent to 20,801 Indian rupees. You can use your MasterCard, Visa, American Express, or Discover Network cards to pay the fee if you choose.

But here’s the catch – once you pay that charge, there is no turning back. The fee is non-refundable. So, before clicking the payment button, be sure you’re ready to go!
