How and when do I begin my preparation for the GMAT and TOEFL/IELTS exams?
Thanks for A2A.
When GMAT & TOEFL?
Well, there is no specific time when you have got to give these exams. These exams are conducted throughout the year. Since GMAT scores are valid for 5 yrs & TOEFL for 2yrs, you can take this exam this year (2nd yr of your grad) or next year (3rd yr of your grad) based on your preparation. Whereas TOEFL, It is advised that you take this exam in your pre-final year (3rd yr of grad).
How GMAT & TOEFL?
Simplest way would be to join some good institute. Learn the concepts from an expert, which will be of great help. Else, you can do it on your own, by making use of self study books/internet/seniors help, etc.
All in all, just make sure you do have your score cards in hand before making the application to universities i.e., one year ahead of the commencement of your master’s course.
Hope this helps 🙂 Cheers 🙂
