GMAT Testing Updates | Coronavirus
We bring you the latest updates on GMAT test center closures, testing suspensions and more in light of the coronavirus pandemic
Coronavirus (or Covid-19), which started Wuhan, China, is spreading globally and impacting countries and business schools around the world. In March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic.
In this difficult climate, the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), owner and administrator of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), has closed test centers and suspended test taking in locations around the world.
If you’re considering applying to business school, this will affect you as the GMAT exam is the premier admission test for business schools, used as a quality indicator when measuring your suitability for an MBA or master's program.
GMAC is releasing regular updates on the status of its GMAT test centers and GMAT testing in various locations. This also extends to the Executive Assessment (EA) test for Executive MBA candidates.
GMAC has also launched the GMAT Online Exam as a temporary at-home testing solution, with around-the-clock testing appointments available. This option is open to candidates globally excluding Mainland China, Iran, Cuba, Sudan, Slovenia, and North Korea.
Here, we update you on the latest news on GMAT testing suspensions and test center closures:
