End of week roundup

You can now take physical notes in the GMAT Online Exam!

Good news for all GMAT test-takers! The Graduate Management Admission Council has introduced a physical whiteboard option for the GMAT Online Exam, released as a temporary solution for candidates applying to b-school during the coronavirus pandemic.

Previously, some candidates expressed concerns over using the online whiteboard tool, which took a little getting used to. From June 11th, that’s no longer a problem as you’ll be able to take down written notes during your exam and have the option of using a physical whiteboard, online whiteboard, or both.

With many GMAT test centers still closed, GMAC has also announced an extension to its use of the GMAT Online Exam with new appointments available until mid-July.
