Rescheduling Gmat

Post Sun Oct 16, 2011 4:55 pm
Hello all,

Less than a week from today I have my Gmat. In the past 30 days I've been working overtime and didn't get a chance to study for Gmat. I thought of rescheduling and totally forgot about it. Now that I don't have a chance to reschedule, I plan to take the test even though I am not fully prepared. I plan to take the test in the next 45 days again. My question: Is it OK if I take the test without full preparation and take it again next month?Are there any disadvantages? Please suggest.

Thanks

Hi Vijay,

Since, it is just less than a week for your exam, you will forfeit the amount you paid for the exam.Since you don't have any other choice now,i recommend you to take the exam to get a feel of it (anyways you are not going to get your 250$ back).
Do not cancel the scores if you feel that you made it ( I prefer to see my scores to see how well did i perform on the real GMAT. This helps you to identify your weak areas), else you have an option to cancel your scores.

Please do not forget to post your experience on BTG.

All the Best. Smile

Take the experience. Go for it. Going through the exam experience will help you a lot, if you need to take the test again. Lot of people score less in the exam due to first time blues.

Thanks you all for your suggestions. So does it mean that there is no disadvantage in taking the test twice?

No real disadvantage...schools will look at your highest score. A lot of people take the test twice.
