Unofficial: 720 (Q49, V38). Can AWA score later add to it? [#permalink] New post 31 Oct 2007, 14:34
Hi All,

Yesterday I took GMAT and achieved the score of 720.
Of course, I was hoping for more, but something in the depths of my soul keeps telling me that this score is a fair one. But, you know, we always want to get more than we deserve....

Anyway, my question is not about the score, it's rather abot the influence of AWA on the total score.

720 is still my unofficial score. Is it possible that the AWA score will either increase or decrease the total score reported to me yesterday?

I think I've read something about this possibility from someone who first got 730 unofficially, and then AWA score of 6.0 with official total GMAT score of 740... But I don't remember anymore where I could have read this.
Could you please either confirm or refute this point as follows from your experience?

Thank you in advance.

Good luck to those who need it!

P.S.
Edited due to some mistakes noticed by me later..

your AWA score has no effect on your 720. The unofficial score is almost always the final score.

Thank you!

But why do you say "almost always"?

i say almost always because thats what gmac says. they call it unofficial for a reason. i dont know what would actually make it change after you take it. maybe some glitch in the system, or change in scaling.

Oleks, they might *edit* your scores later as well like you edited your post later noticed by you:)

nope it is not the case of changing the score. they will not. that's your true final score of the test. now only awa should come with 6 or less.

good luck
