Is a 3.0 AWA score that bad? [#permalink] New post 10 Jan 2013, 21:39
Hi everyone,
I wanted to know if a 3.0 on the score AWA is too bad? Iam not a native speaker and I got a 4.0 on the first exam but a 3.0 on the second one. I will have to report my second exam because my GMAT score was much better on the second one.

Thanks!

Eeeee. 3 is a 5th percentile.
it is not a great score and adcoms will receive your AWA essay and most likely will read it due to the score. Keep that in mind. I don't think they will deny you for that but they will read it and find it significantly different from your essays, it will be a red flag.

Thanks for your answer.

What about the 4.0 on the previous exam, would they consider it at all?

I think it is much better but not great for a top 10. See this post how to ace AWA: how-to-get-6-0-awa-my-guide-64327.html
