Future Retest Advice Needed [#permalink] New post 13 Mar 2005, 17:50
Currently I am registered to take the GMAT on 4-11-05. It is unlikely that during the next four weeks I will be able to put forth a worthy effort in order to get a good score. I am under no time constraints as far as applying, as any entrance into an MBA program would be at least two years away.

My question is this:

If I get a bad score on the April exam, will this affect me down the road if I retest and get a good score? How do schools look at multiple scores?

If at all possible I would like to take the test just to see what it is like, and especially considering that you get so little back in a refund. However, if having a potentially bad score on my record will cause problems down the road when I test again I will cancel and live with the money lost.


Thanks for your help.

Most of the top cluster schools use the highest score in evaluating your application. However, I would verify this with each school that interests you.

GMAT has been known to be tricky. I've read a lot of posts where people say I didn't expect this much.
Never under-estimate yourself. Prepare well and give a good shot. Good luck.

read somewhere Business schools view your retaken score as a sign that you are determined to work for what you want (that is, getting into the school of your choice). If so, then re-taking the GMAT really shouldn't bother you too much. Good luck ! :-D
