Fortunately for you, the GMAT has introduced the option of rescheduling and cancelling your GMAT for a refund. It’s a simple process with just seven steps. Here, we’ve documented a detailed answer to the questions – how to reschedule GMAT exam and cancel your GMAT exam?

In fact, it allows students to reschedule as little as 24 hours before the exam.

  2. After logging in, go to the ‘My Account’ section and click the ‘Exam’ tab. You’ll be able to choose the GAT exam you want to modify. Once you click on it, you’ll be presented with two options – reschedule or cancel. Click on reschedule.
  3. Choose the new date and time you want to pick. You can also modify your test centre if you wish to. Just click on the ‘Change test centre’ option on the bottom-left.
  4. The following dialogue box will ask you to confirm the new test time and date. Once confirmed, click on the complete reschedule button to move ahead.

What are the GMAT rescheduling fees?

  3. For less than 15 days before the test, you’ll be charged $150.

According to GMAT’s updated cancellation and refund policy, it deducts a cancellation fee from the amount you paid and refunds the rest to the original payment source.

 

  1. If you cancel your exam more than 60 days before the test date, GMAT will deduct $150 as a cancellation fee and refund $100.
  2. If you cancel your exam 15-60 days before the test date, GMAT will deduct $175 and refund $75.
