Extrmely Urgent : Should I CANCEL my score?!  [#permalink]

New post 02 Aug 2018, 01:39
So I took my GMAT today for a deferred MBA program and got a 670. Should I cancel my score as I intend on applying to bussiness school after 3-4 years and will require a 700+ score for the same.

As I have read on the forum that all valid scores are visible when sent to a school, will this lower score have an impact on my future chances despite that 700+ score? If yes, then what will be the magnitude of this impact?

670 is a good score (80%), and even the best schools don't require a 700+ score. I don't see any downside to keeping a 670. Maybe if you already had a higher score it would make sense to cancel this 670, but as it stands, this 670 will give you options in the future. Keep in mind that plenty of people make it to good schools with sub-700 scores every year.

That said, if you are really unsure, go ahead and cancel. You can always get (reinstate) this score back by paying the GMAC $50, so it's not as if cancellation is an irreversible step.

In addition to the points above, if you score a 700+, it will also show progress to the B-schools. So I wouldn't worry too much about it considering that this is the first attempt.

Hi abeerdhingra,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. Since you plan to retake the GMAT (and score higher), I recommend that you cancel this score, so only your potential 700+ score will be visible to schools. That being said, if for some reason you don’t retake the GMAT or want to use your 670, you can reinstate your score as long as you do so within 4 years and 11 months of your test date.

By when do you plan to retake the exam? For how long have you been studying?

You may find this article about how to score a 700+ on the GMAT helpful.

Please reach out with further questions.
