GMAT Exam Dates in New Zealand
Unlike some paper based exams, the GMAT is computer based. Therefore, there are no fixed test dates for GMAT. Wherever you are in New Zealand, all test centers are open from Monday through Saturday throughout the year. Some even offer the exam every day of the year. However, some test centers are not open on Sundays and national holidays. For example, most college-based test centers might be closed for extended periods around holidays.
