Thoughts on taking the gmat at home vs in center? Leaning towards in the center bc it will feel more “real”

In center is better. You get more breaks and don’t have to worry about your internet dropping or the proctor stopping the test because of some random protocol violation. In person is quite safe (I took it during covid, they are serious on precautions).


I took it online and personally liked it because I essentially took all my practice exams in same spot/conditions so I wasn’t nervous the day of and it just felt like another practice test


How much does wearing a mask affect you?

Fwiw, there have been many studies claiming the virus doesn’t just sit in enclosed spaces. It dissipates, so you can still think it’s inconsiderate, but if the next person doesn’t come for 10 minutes, 99.9% chance they’re fine

Agree with above. Less worry during Test day which you don't want. Test center are very good about COVID safety. Plus I don't know if it's just my personal feelings but there seems to be a stigma around at home scores being les s valid than test center scores. That may just be me though

It’s just you.

Makes sense, thanks! Do they release test dates in waves? Not seeing any available for march in my area

I believe so but you have a lot of pent up demand so you may have to be a little flexible with dates or location
