I did the GMAT last week, as I do every year:

790 50q, 50v

Do I get bonus points for being over 40 years old?

bb - it so counts...your name should be on the list. I say this partially because my 95% has probably dropped to a 90% in the last year. :wink:

Nice achievements everyone!!

Do not tempt me. You will not believe how many times I have considered adding my name to the list in this thread, then deciding not to, then considering retaking the GMAT, then going back to sanity and the cycle continues.

I've left it very late to apply to any schools. If I don't get a place at Said, oxford this year, I'd like to take the GMAT again later on in the year. I really enjoyed the experience.

Funny or not, but when I finished my GMAT - I had no idea about the score I would get. I got 740 on GMAT prep the day before but was not sure how accurate it was, so was hoping for 700+. When I saw my 750 on the screen (which allow me to remind you was 99th percentile and my name should really be on this list, but that's OK since these days 750 is barely worth a nickle). Anyway, when I got out of the test center, I really wanted to reschedule for another attempt because I felt I could have done better. I made one dumb mistake in Math that I knew how to solve later that night and and a few other mistakes that I could avoid next time. If it were not for 750 being the 99th percentile, I would have rescheduled and taken the test again.

Yes I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. The decision to apply for a Business school was quite sudden and recent so I wasn't able to prepare as well as I would have liked to. My sentence correction skills were still terrible and since I majored in mathematics, I neglected to practise for the quantitative questions. Only when I purchased the gmatclub tests a week or so before the testday was I humbled and I realised that mathematics in the GMAT is a completely different ball game.

mujimania, don't take this the wrong way, but after a 770, a score of 780 or 790 or even 800 wont improve your chances of admission. As Alex Chu of MBA Apply puts it, a GMAT retake after any score of 700+ is "penny wise but pound foolish".

The next step of writing essays and preparing your application strategy is every bit as challenging (many might say more so) than a GMAT retake. I would highly recommend buying a couple of application essay books (MBA Application strategy by Avi Gordon is my personal favourite) to see exactly how much effort is required - before you contemplate GMAT redux.

All the best :)

Yes you're right. The wise choice would be to divert my efforts to other parts of the application process. Though I will miss the GMAT!
