Hi,

I got 690 (q47 v37 IR6) in GMAT (2nd attempt) but, unfortunately, I got a 4 in AWA. In my 1st attempt, I had got a 640 (q46 v33 IR6) and a 5 in AWA. My profile is full of Toastmasters and I am actually pretty good at writing thus, my essays for the application would be way better than at least a 4. I am planning to apply in the top 100. Is it going to create an issue? Will my profile be flagged or the essays be doubted because I got a 4 on AWA?

TIA.

Nope, the 4 is AWA, though not great, is decent and won't hamper your chances. Shouldn't be much of a worry.

Hi dorothy94,

I wouldn't retake GMAT to improve AWA. AWA score is not scrutinized too heavily as adcomes also have the essays and interviews to evaluate your communication skills.

If you're gonna retake the exam though, please refer to the AWA guide:

Good luck!
