AWA Score is "0" - What should I do?  [#permalink]

Hi guys,

Just received my official GMAT score and the AWA score shows up as "0". I've taken GMAT once before and scored "6" and I was sure this essay was even better than last time. I don't know if this is an error or if my AWA score will be recalculated in the official report, but what should I do now? This is very annoying as a few days ago I was so happy to see my GMAT score for other sections and thought I was done, and this official score report with "0" AWA destroyed me today.

Thank you in advance.

Take a look at this post for another report of the same thing. This is likely just a glitch and should clear up on its own, like this case. But we should act under the assumption that it isn't, and I suggest you reach out to Pearson support ASAP (phone and email both).

I agree with AjiteshArun; it’s probably a glitch. Have you reached out to the folks at GMAC to discuss the situation?

If you can, wait a couple of days to see whether the score shows up. In the meantime, call the Pearson customer service people up (don't just send them an email).

As Ajitesh and Scott have mentioned, this has to be an error.

I remember reading somewhere that AWA zero means leaving the essay completely blank or writing in some language other than English.

I am sure none of this is applicable to you;).

It’s definitely a glitch as zero is an almost impossible score. Contact them over the weekend or Monday.

Same experience. I emailed them, got an response within 24 hours, saying that it still takes time for all scores to upload and ask me to log in and check again. When I logged in again, I saw the actual AWA score.

This just happened to me too. It’s my third time taking the GMAT and I’ve gotten a 5 and a 6 before. I took it Oct 26th and finally got the results of 0! My heart dropped because I knew I had written just as good if not a stronger essay than before. I do hope it’s a glitch they can fix!
