What Are The GMAT Test Dates?

The GMAT has no set dates, and is offered year-round during business hours. However, there is usually one week in a month in which it is not offered.

How Many Times Should I Take The GMAT?

Most people are better off preparing thoroughly for the test, taking it one time and getting their top score. You may take the test as many times as you like, but you cannot take it more than once a month, and many business schools will average your scores. You should contact the schools to which you are applying to find out their policies, and plan accordingly. If you know you did poorly, you have the option of canceling the test immediately after completing it, and business schools will not know about your score.

Students typically raise their score when they retake the test. Students who raise their score the most tend to be students with high GPA's who scored poorly on the GMAT nonetheless. Students who made glaring errors on test day, such as running out of time, will also tend to perform better.
