The GMAT is available year-round (nearly every day of the week and at several times during the day on most days), which offers Austin test-takers great flexibility in scheduling. Do note, however, that available time slots change continuously based on capacity and ongoing GMAT registration. Desirable slots fill up quickly, so make sure to register for the exam early (a month or more ahead of time) if you are dead-set on taking it on a specific day of the week at a certain time.
