Yes, it's right.
You're welcome to the forum, sanjaySinha, but your answer added nothing to those already given, and put me to the trouble of pointing out that students and learners here expect replies from English teachers to be perfectly grammatical.

I think it is more natural to say: I am thinking of taking the test(whatever test you have in mind).
