I've read quite a few posts from people who say they thought they bombed the exam, and thought about cancelling their score. But they didn't and ended up doing very well.

It seems as if it's never a good idea to cancel your score (unless you got sick, fell asleep, etc). Because you may have done really well. And if your score is indeed low, you can always retake it. Since most schools take your highest score, your low score won't hurt you. I think cancelling should only be a factor if schools averaged your scores.
Anyone agree?

I think you guys are right!!

However, does a BAD score reported to the school reflect negatively on the cadidate (in spite of the fact that the schools take the higher score)?
