PLEASE HELP!!!!! really concerned [#permalink] New post 08 Sep 2010, 12:31
I took gmat once scoring 3 months ago scoring 610, today I did the exam another time but I ended up cancelling the exam because I couldn't even concentrate during the whole exam because the class was too noisy. during the gmat prep exams I was scoring between 700-740
I would like to know how this will affect in my future applications for b-schools. I am targeting 700 hundred or above in order to be able to apply to LBS, which is my first objective, so I need someone to explain me if this is going to affect in my application even if in my second real attemp which would be in a month period I can get 700 or above?
Looks bad in an application to take the exam two or three time?

Thanks so much....

I don't think cancelling your exam this one time will affect you negatively. If however, you cancel your test 3, 4 times, then that's when I think a problem may arise. You simply need to take it again, and just do the best you can.

sorry that you had to cancel your exam - you shouldve complained if there was noise because that means the folks werent doing their job in keeping the place quiet... next time bring ear plugs if it really bothers you.

I don't think those are allowed right? I know gum chewing isn't.

I think they provide you with earplugs, from what I've been told.

Also, if you think the testing center was noisy, then you should complain. Maybe GMAC will let you reschedule a test for free. I wouldn't count on it, but it's worth a try.

I do remember they had these big uncomfortable headphones though. They did block the noise out.

Call the different test centers around you and see if they'll tell you if they provide ear plugs.

For instance, the test center in Manhattan on 44th Street and 5 Avenue has the ones where you couldn't hear a baby crying even if it was right next to your ear.

true. im going to bring my own ear plugs. those big puffy ear muffs are for the ASVAP's or some other exam. They probably don't do much to cancel noise for concentration.

Figures if you're gonna pay $250 bucks they da** better give you some pretty beast ear plugs :D
