Extended Time on GMAT (learning disability) [#permalink]

Hi Paul,

I know that on the SATs (9 years ago) that if you took it with extra time that your score was reported with an asterisk indicating the use of extra time. Does the GMAT report scores the same way?

If it does, I am wondering if adcoms look at extended time on the GMAT negatively. I know by law they are not allowed to, but I can't help thinking that it must enter their thinking when evaluating an application.

Is it better to try to take the test without extended time and do your best, so as not to have your GMAT score discounted in the admissions process.

GMAT does allow extra time for people with disabilities. You may be supplied with some one if you have reading problem. If you have "Low attention disorder" you may be given upto 4 hours of extra time. And in some other cases you might be given around 2 hours of extra time.

Yes the score sent to adcoms do indicate that candidate was given extra time because of disabilities. Obviously adcoms will definitely view it as negative and be prepared to answer all such questions as if you have this problem then how can you finish course in due time, with due attention etc.

Don't let the fact that your score will be asterisked dissuade you from taking the extra time if you need it. If you can provide the schools with corroborating documentation that you have a disability that justifies the extra time then you should go ahead and ask for the extended test. If you have a long track record of academic and professional success *despite* your disability then most schools will give you credit for overcoming your disability and it will not hold you back in the application process.

Good luck,

There was actually a big lawsuit against the company which owns the SAT exam for reporting which students took the exam with accommodations. As a result, I am pretty certain that Pearson View (the company which owns the GMAT), cannot, by law, disclose who takes the exam with accommodations.
