Very bad in writing, what shall I do? IELTS 8 (W only 6.5) [#permalink] New post 05 Oct 2012, 12:35
Hello again

So after my bad AWA (GMAT 690/AWA 4.5), again I did very bad at IELTS (Overall Band 8, R 8.5, L 8.5, S 8, W 6.5).
I though I could make a better writing in IELTS to make up the bad AWA.
But...

Will it impact my MBA application?
What shall I do? shall I retake GMAT or IELTS to improve the writing score?


Thanks in advance.

I may be wrong but I am under the impression that the AWA score is of minimal importance compared with other aspects of the GMAT. Your application essays will be a better measure of your writing ability than your AWA score. I would not worry about the AWA score because the GMAT is only a small component of your MBA application and on top of that the AWA is one small piece of the GMAT.
