Better yet:

Log in to your account @ mba.com and check your score fulfillment. You can see what schools GMAC has sent the submissions files to. If a school claims to have not received it, contact the GMAC and the agent you speak to you can confirm the submission.

I took my GMAT last Saturday and received my electronic score report today (Thursday). Will it still take 15 more days for the schools to receive them?


If you had an AWA score with your report (which I assume you did), then the schools already have it (sent electronically), though it may take a few days for the schools to process it.

You'll have a list of schools by name, so as long as you know the names of the 5 schools you want, you should not need anything else.
If you don't, you can randomly pick them :)


A very useful information. I thought every schools has some kind of number which I was supposed to take with me during the exam and put those number online or something. I even though of making two different set for two different range of score :twisted:

Btw, The schools name will be displayed. What if I want to apply other programs than MBA. Say if I want to admit for Finance course of University X (which is separate from the MBA), will I be able to do that?

You will input the schools BEFORE the test, so you should only need one test.
Yes, the list has names of schools and numbers next to them, but since you are not allowed to bring anything with you to the test center, the number system does not really work unless you are using it to distinguish between programs.

Different programs will have different ID's - if you are applying for Master's of Finance or PhD, you will need to send your scores to different departments - that should be reflected in the selection (such as school of business, school of economics, school of .....)

It doesn't really matter. The GMAC reports ALL GMAT attempts when scores are reported.

Taking your example: You score a 600, and then score a 750. The schools you report your score to after your second attempt will see the 600.

All scores, including cancellations, are reported to the schools you submit scores to.

Do you have to send TOEFL scores again if you send them last year?

Every year is a new year - schools traditionally do not keep or carryover records from previous years.

My first score was 630. At the end of the month I retake the Gmat. I intend not to send my new score to the aimed school before I see I've improved it. Imagine that I get the score of 580... I prefer applying with my first score.

Can you confirm me, if I get 580 and if I don't send my new score, that the school won't ever know it and will only take into account my score of 630 ?

It does not matter - whether you only send the first (630) report or the second (580 & 630), the school will use 630 in both cases.

However, to answer your question, yes, if you send one report, and then take GMAT 10 more times and don't send the scores to anyone, nobody will know about your visits to the test center :wink:

The percentiles always shift a little, but not very fast. There is a score inflation as more and more people score higher. The most famous is that 750 is currenly a 98th percentile whereas it was 99th 3-4 years ago. Other areas have inflated as well, mostly scores above 650.

These are from OG 12, so they are from this spring (OG 12 came out in April) but the data is probably form 2008 when the book was getting prepped.

What is the best way to estimate my GMAT score?
- GMAT Prep - GMAC's official practice test software (free) includes 2 GMAT tests with retired GMAT questions. It is by far the most reliable and effective way to estimate your GMAT score. It only comes with 2 tests, but the software can be reinstalled and since the question bank is large enough, you can actually take 4 tests without seeing many repeats. More about that here: gmatprep-gmat-prep-powerprep-power-prep-free-tests-77548.html
- GMAT Score Estimator/Calculator - you can use multiple test parameters to estimate your final GMAT performance. The estimator works based on 400+ test taker results.


I am so glad to know that I can take the test 4 times. I was so afraid to run out of official study materials.

awesome..

i like raw score to scale score conversion .

:)



I don't get it!
How is the raw score converted into the scaled score.
I know for a fact that the 2 scaled scores of quant and verbal get combined to give you the combined overall score of the gmat from 200-800 range, but how does one first convert the raw to the scaled. Is this scaling on 50 or 60. I read somewhere that this scaling was on 50 in some CAT software, hence the confusion!

please enlighten me
thanks

Is there a relationship between accuracy in the exam and the raw score. Means how many questions one can get wrong (out of 41/37) and still maintain a raw score of say XX or YY. I understand thats it adaptive by nature and where you got the question wrong matters too but does a simplified relationship exist?

For non CAT papers we mostly know our accuracy or how many we got wrong/right from the total.

Unfortunately no - on the CAT you get more points for answering tough questions correctly and it takes time to get to them (which on the flip side means you get at the end fewer points by answering simple questions wrong). The other wrinkle comes from the experimental questions. Sometimes 5 wrong ones will mean you got 45 and sometimes 5 wrong ones (2 of which are experimental) will mean you got 49 and sometimes 5 wrong ones (5 of them in a row) will mean you got 40...
