You Can Retake GMAT Online

This is straight from GMAC:

“Option to Take the GMAT™ Online Exam Again Since you took your GMAT™ Online exam before the use of physical whiteboards was permitted, we are offering you the option to take the GMAT™ Online exam again. If you would like to take the test again using a physical whiteboard, you can now schedule an additional GMAT™ Online exam appointment between June 11th through July 17th. Please note that the $200 registration fee applies for this option.”

Good news for the early adopters who took GMAT online with the online whiteboard: you can retake the online GMAT with a physical whiteboard. This is fantastic for those who had a crappy first test or who didn’t get enough practice to make the online whiteboard an asset.

I have a GMAT planned for June 8th can I schedule a second one after June 11th?

YES! Even if you haven’t yet taken GMAT online you can still take advantage of the retake option. You just need to book a test for June 10th or before. Then you’ll also be able to book a test for June 11th and beyond. If you’re somewhat ready to start testing I’d go for the two. It’s a rare opportunity to:

  1. Take the GMAT in the comfort of your living room
  2. Take two GMATs that will not count toward your yearly or lifetime limits

There’s also the bonus that there’s no waiting period between online tests or online tests and in person tests. So you can take an online GMAT on June 10th, June 11th, and then and in person on June 12th. Not that you’d want to do things that way but the zero day waiting period does add flexibility to planning.
