When should I start preparing?

Hello Sir/Madam, This is Chaitanya Bakhtiani, a recent graduate from Mumbai University. I have been recruited by Deloitte Consulting and I plan to work here for at least two years, partly to gain experience and partly to save funds for my post graduation studies. I plan to do MIS from a business school rather than graduate schools in fall 2016. By then I would have gained around two years of experience in the field and saved some funds as well. My question to you is when exactly should I give my entrance exam and when should I apply for admissions and scholarships? Also, what will be the right time to start preparing for the entrance exam, be it gmat or gre?

Generally, students are expected to take their admission exams at least 4 – 6 months prior to the start date of the course. You need to select the university that matches best to your academics profile and financial budget. Then work on the documents such as Statement of Purpose, Letters of recommendation, academic transcripts and submit an application to the university. 

The scholarship depends upon your previous academic result and also after entering the university, depending on your academic performance in the 1st term you will get the fee waiver or scholarship from the 2nd term onwards. The University admission team will have their own eligibility criteria and the student has to fulfill it, then you shall be eligible for the same.
