Do you have to Rewrite AWA if rewriting the GMAT??? [#permalink]

Hi
This is an urgent post. I am rewriting my GMAT tomorrow but wondering if I need to do the AWA section again. Last time I wrote I scored 6.0 so there is no need to re write it. If I do not write it (I would rather save my energy for Verbal and Quant) will the zero that appears negatively affect my chances? Or will the 6.0 be sufficient.
Thanks!

You will need to do the AWA essays again. If you have the option of skipping it, that could give you an advantage over other test takers because you will have more energy for the Quant and Verbal sections. Not really fair to the others.

Yes but if I purposefully did not complete them and scored a zero - would that be okay b.c I had 6.0 last time?

It might depend on the schools you plan on applying to, but if they take your highest score, they don't beak up your score. Meaning if you scored a 650 and a 6.0 and then a 700 and a 0.0, they would take the 700 and see you scored a 0.0 on the AWA. Probably not the best image you want to portray. I can't say that for certain but my advice would be to complete the AWA. If you scored a 6 already, you can score well again. Best of luck.

jennnifer21,

Well it depends on the school you are applying to. If the admissions officer gives you an AWA waiver it would be good for you, otherwise it could be viewed negatively.
