most popular time of the year for GMAT

Hey Rebecca,
Do you have any statistics of when is the most popular time of the year that students take the GMAT? In other words, when is busy-season for the exam? Thanks a lot!

Great question! In general, the end of the year is our busiest time. We we an increase in GMAT exams taken starting in August, with exam dates peaking in November and December. Exact peak times vary by region, but those are what we see globally. As always, weekends are more popular than weekdays.

Thanks for asking!
