Is there any point preparing for the GMAT now?


Hello,

I have found myself with a spare 6 weeks or so. I wanted to use this time to study for the GMAT - I might not be going on to do an MBA this year, but possibly next year and I just think it is a useful test to have out the way given the score is valid for five years, I understand.

However, given the test centers are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, is there much point doing this? I understand there may be an interim test available online - but would the score for that be valid for years to come?

Thanks

Besides not having the the Analytical Writing Assessment Section, what are the pros/cons of doing the GMAT online/at home?
Would you suggest to do it online?
Are there any news if it would be possible to take it on line even after the 15th June?
Thanks

I am not sure what you are asking. The pro is that you get a GMAT score. The con is that you miss out on the journey to and from a test centre.

I will still prepare, although I would prefer to do the test in a test center.

But wouldn't you be more likely to get a higher score on the online GMAT, given there will be no analytical writing section? Seems to me that should make things at least a bit easier.

When I submitted my preparing to the professor then he replied this is very impressive.
