So I took the GMAT today and canceled my scores. I really need to retake the exam within 30 days because it's getting close to when i'd need to apply to b-school. I think the reason for my cancellation is valid:
In my Manhattan Review
book, it said you can access your locker during breaks and recommended bringing a snack and something to drink. Before my exam, i was obviously nervous so i wasn't hungry. I bought two protein bars with the plan of eating them during my breaks.
After my essays, i was told I couldn't access my locker to get my snack. I get low blood sugar (my dad has diabetes) and when I don't eat, I get really light headed and start to shake. I finished the math portion even though I started to get really light headed towards the end. When I took my 2nd break (before verbal), i downed water with hopes that it would quench my hunger. it didn't. halfway through the verbal, i started to get so lightheaded that i was worried i was going to faint. I decided to choose A as my answer on the next 20 questions and cancel my scores because i couldn't even read the questions on the screen.
I'm going to call GMAC on monday and ask if i can take the exam within the next 30 days (and ideally next week). does anyone have any experience with this? do you think they will allow this? anyone have any suggestions about what to say?
