The recommended method for booking a GMAT appointment is to register online. You can pay by Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or JCB) or Debit card (Visa or MasterCard only) that allows international transactions.
Please note that some Indian banks will not allow debit cards to be used on the internet unless the merchant participates in Verified by Visa or MasterCard Secure Code, both of which require the customer to enter a pin number. Since the GMAC does not participate in this program, you will not be able to use such a debit card to pay your GMAT registration fee.
Included in the Fee: Five Score Reports
When you apply to any Business school, it will not accept your self-reported GMAT score. You must request GMAC to send your GMAT score report. On the day of your GMAT, you can choose up to 5 programs to which your scores will be sent. These 5 score reports are included in the US$ 250 GMAT fee.
If you want to send additional score reports later, you can order them at a charge of US $30 per report.
A range of other services are available for a fee. To see the complete list of additional exam-related services, click here.

Fee to Cancel or Reinstate a Score
On the day of the examination, as soon as you complete the test, you will see your score and will have 2 minutes to decide whether to keep the score or cancel it. If you cancel at that time, you can reinstate your score within 4 years and 11 months at a cost of US$ 50. If you do not make a choice within 2 minutes, your scores are automatically cancelled. If you accept the score at the centre, you can cancel it within 72 hours at a cost of US$ 25.
