Hi
You cannot reschedule your exam within 7 days of the exam. I would suggest to give your best. Analyze the tests, revise everything that you have studied and go through the error log.
In the worst case scenario, even if you do not achieve your target score, you will gain valuable test taking experience that will be useful during retake.
All the best.

Hi madgame,

It's too late to cancel this Exam or reschedule it, so you should plan to take it as scheduled and do your best. If you're not happy with your result, then you can always cancel it - but you should note your score results (since they will be useful in planning out the next phase of your studies). In addition, you should pay careful attention to everything that's involved in your specific Test Day "event"; you'll be able to use that knowledge to better plan for your next attempt (assuming that one is needed).

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
5) What are the exact application deadlines that you're facing?

You should attempt .
Push yourself and get over your nerves.
It is just an exam.
You will always come out better with experience.
I am not sure but You can always cancel your score.

So go for it.

Best of luck.

Hi madgame,

You've named some highly-competitive Schools, so beyond having a competitive GMAT Score, you will need a strong OVERALL profile AND you'll need to properly 'market yourself' to each individual Program that you apply to. Thankfully, you have plenty of time to do all of that work. Your CAT Scores also show that you have the ability to learn and improve - which is good. After you've taken the Official GMAT on Friday, you should post back here with your results and we can discuss how best to proceed.

Hi madgame,

It’s unlikely that you are going to increase your score by 70 points in the next few days, so I recommend that you take your exam at a later date, once you are hitting your score goal on practice exams. However, if you stick with your current exam date, please reach back out after your exam to let us know how things went.
