Taking exam but canceling scores to experience taking test? [#permalink] New post 20 Aug 2007, 15:29
Would it be a good thing to take actual GMAT but cancel scores just to experience what taking the test would be like? I saw this recommended in an Arco book - '30 days to the GMAT Cat'. I don't believe that I am sufficiently prepared to score at the level that I would like to so I am thinking of following the aforementioned recommendation. If I do this, as far as I know, there won't be any indication in the system that I took the test. Does anyone know for sure and I would love to get some opinions on this?

If you sit for the GMAT but cancel your scores, schools will be able to see that you took the test. Yes, there will be no "score" to see but they might question what happened to you. Plus, you will literally waste $250.
If you want to "experience" the test without schools seeing your score, I'd recommend taking GMATPrep with AWA and following the timing guidelines GMAT test follows.
