i was just wondering if you take the gmat twice, do most schools just count your best score or do they average the two?

and also, if you take the exam again, will they send you two different exams or will they be the same two practice exams that were sent the first time? thanks guys.

Most will consider the last one. However, you must know or have some slight idea what schools you are applying for - drop a line to the admissions or ask the question in the school discussion thread here(103)

If I understand you correctly, it will be the same tests - everyone gets the same.

They will give you the same tests. Also most schools will look at both the scores but will evaluate only last one. Best of luck

Wrong from both responders...

They consider only your highest score, not your last score. If you bomb it the second time, it'll raise eyebrows and you should take it again, but regardless, they take the highest score. If you get a 670 the first time and a 650 the second, they take the 670.

I assume for the tests you're referring to the GMATPrep tests...those don't get updated very often, so yes, you'd have the same ones to take again. You can uninstall them, though, and reinstall the software to get mostly new questions. You might see a few repeats, but it's worth doing.

That's true, schools will only consider your highest GMAT score. I don't think they care if you take the test a second time and end up scoring lower.
