Right now, many prospective business school applicants are working from home and wondering whether the global COVID-19 pandemic presents an opportunity to apply for and earn an MBA or other business degree that will accelerate their career journey. For most, one part of that process is deciding whether and when to take the GMAT. Now that GMAC has announced the availability of its new GMAT Online product, applicants must choose whether to take the GMAT now online or to wait and see if in-person testing opens up in their area.
In this informative video, Noodle Pros Founding Tutor Dan Edmonds (called “Master of the GMAT” by Poets&Quants) explains in detail the new GMAT Online at-home testing and its implications for MBA applicants. Drawing on his more than 25 years of experience tutoring GMAT students, his multiple perfect GMAT scores, and his work designing and writing simulated GMAT tests and drills, Dan breaks down nuanced and useful answers to important questions like:
- Will MBA programs trust these results?
- Will MBA programs take the results seriously?
- Will it be easier or harder to take the GMAT at home?
- Is the testing secure? Won’t people cheat?
- How does the remote proctoring work?
- Why can I take the GMAT Online only once?
- Should I take the GMAT Online soon?
- Should I wait until it is possible to take the GMAT at a testing center?
- Should I prep differently for the GMAT Online?
- How does the whiteboard work? Is it as good as scratch paper?
- How can I practice using the whiteboard?
- Why won’t I be able to see my score at the end of the test?
