I had it scheduled for november last year, but could not do it due to some family issues. Now i am back studying and i am planning to apply for 2018 intakes, so i have a reasonable amount of time to get a good GMAT score.

It might make sense to try to schedule the GMAT sooner, in time to get a couple of apps in for round 1, then you'd have time to retake the test if you need to ? cheers, Alex
