Which test date? Taken twice with same results [#permalink]

Hello everyone,
I am now applying for an Msc in Management at ESADE, but I am a bit worried about the Gmat. The average result at the university is 640, and I got 590 twice (20th Feb and 29th Mar). In the 1st exam attended I got 29verbal and 42 quantitative, whereas in the 2nd I got 25 Verbal and 46 quantitative. Since the deadline is on 7th Apr I am not in time to retake the test and I don't know which one should I submit, what do you suggest?
I considered that submitting the 1st shows that I could improve, but submitting the 2nd shows that I didn't improve, that I'm not great in verbal, but I tried again whereas if they see only the 1st one they might think that I did not will to improve.

It doesn't matter. The school will see both tests. And it won't look thaaaat bad that you didn't improve. I'd say go with the slightly more balanced score.
