The study abroad aspirants need to undergo certain standardized exams to get admitted to a reputed international college. GMAT being the most popular and widely accepted exam in the globally recognised universities is the one that has the maximum number of candidates applying at the same time. With the increasing number of applicants by year, it is certainly becoming difficult to find a suitable slot at the appropriate location. In this article, we will inform you about how to book a GMAT slot. If you are appearing for the GMAT Exam 2022, you would be glad to know that the exam offers the flexibility of appearing for the exam any time throughout the year from the date of your registration.

How does Booking Slot differ from Registration?

There is a difference between registering for an exam and booking the slot for the same. Registration for an exam would require you to create an account for 1 year, while Booking Slot would mean that you are booking the date, time, and test centre to appear for the exam. A slot would need to be booked every time you wish to appear for the exam within that year with a fee of $275. The maximum number of attempts in a year is 5, which means that you can appear for GMAT in a year 5 times, starting from the date of your registration. In other words, you need to register for the exam once a year but you would need to book the slot more than once if you aspire to appear for the exam more than once. Also, a candidate cannot appear more than 8 times for the GMAT in his/her lifetime effective Dec-17th, 2016.

 

Number of Attempts per Registration = 5

Number of Attempts per Slot Booking = 1

The exam re-attempt can be made only after 16 days of the previous attempt.

Hi Sreya, GRE is required for MS courses and GMAT is required for management or business-related courses. You need to give IELTS, TOEFL, or PTE to prove your English language proficiency for studying English Literature.
