How do I register myself for the test?
If you have been preparing for the GMAT and intend to take the test soon, you must register to take the GMAT in advance either online or by phone, fax, or email. Walk-in registration at test centers is not allowed.
Registering online is the most popular and handy way of applying for the GMAT.
Step 1: Create an Account at www.mba.com
You may create an account by going to https://accounts.gmac.com/Account/Register. Be sure that your name, date of birth, location of citizenship, and gender EXACTLY match with the information on the identification you will present at the test center.
Remember that in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Pakistan the only acceptable document for identification is a valid Passport.
(Note: In Singapore, South Korea, Ghana, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Japan, Nigeria, and Taiwan also the only acceptable document for identification is a valid Passport.)
Step 2: Schedule your exam and Find a Test Centre
Once you have created the account, register for the GMAT exam. Schedule your exam and look for test centre(s) near your place. You can select up to three test centers to compare availability and then choose your appointment preference. There are two available preferences – Appointments on or around a particular date and the next available appointment. After selecting date and time, complete the order.
Note that you can book a test date only six months before the test date. It is advisable to book early if you want to take the test during the peak season.
Step 3: Confirm Exam Details
Confirm personal information like name, date of birth, and citizenship. It must exactly match your identification (not expired).
Step 4: Pay for your Exam
Agree to policies and make payment of USD 250 in order to complete the registration. In India, credit card is the only mode of payment. That’s it! You are done!
You’ll get an email confirming your GMAT appointment, and you can also see the confirmation in your mba.com account.
