Hello guys. pls can you be of help?.I took my GMAT some 8 months ago and had a poor score. but i had a 6 in my AWA. Doesnt that suggest that i have a good English writing ability?. I am preparing to retake the GMAT in like 2 months time and i am having issues with my verbal. I always get 43, 44, 47 in quantitative and 20, 22, 26 in verbal and it brings down my score drastically to less than 600. Please is there something i can do about my verbal?. With a consistent score of 47 in quantitative, why will verba be messing me up like this?.Pls i need any form of advice or tips on cracking the verbal....

You can't even take a coin inside. They'll strip search you (I'm kidding), but yeah nothing is allowed. They provide you a pen and a notebook for rough.

Can one register for a GMAT date which is just 2 weeks away from the date of registration?
If 'NO', what is the minimum gap that is required?
Is it location dependant?

Vishvesh-bhai,

Most of the programs designed on the lines of international MBA programs (albeit with an Indian tadka) accept a valid GMAT score - ISB, IIMs (for their 1-year courses), Great Lakes et al.

There are several others that have their own tests but for those who can't take the desi version, they do accept the GMAT as an alternate option.

Hey guys,
This might sound a bit silly, but if you reschedule your exam, does it show on the score sheet that this person rescheduled the exam once, twice or however many times. The reason I ask is because I know if you cancel your score on the exam day, it will be listed as "score cancelled" on the official score sheet. Let me know if someone can answer this question. Thanks

Good question but No, reschedule events are not reported to schools.
