Hello experts ,

I took my GMAT on 31st August , and scored way to low , 430 (quant ;40 verbal:12 ir: 1 AWA:5)
I mean it's the worse score that one would ever get.

There was a spelling error in my passport that I got to know just before the exam , but that caused a lot of panic for me during the exam. Though I have now corrected my passport and got a new one as well. Moreover my pattern selection was verbal,quant,IR awa

During the mocks these were my score
Gmat prep1 : 670
Gmat prep 2: 690
Mgmat 1 : 580
Mgmat2 : 600
Mgmat 3: 640

Veristas 1: 640
Veritas 2: 670
Veritas 3:720

I'm planning to take gmat again but I just want to know will this score be taken as a negative point during profile evaluation , moreover if I land up with the score like 650-670 still college s where I am applying will consider as a good increase.

My target college is ISB , schulich, iim indore , though i am confused if I should apply in the first round or take one month more and then apply in the second round .(specially for ISB)

I'm very confused if i should take my gmat again in hush hush because ISB. 1st deadline is on 15th October and I'm planning on taking my gmat on 10th October.

I need your advice experts , I'm going through a lot of confusion .

Thanks

So here is a question - if you were getting 600+ is your practice tests and were not expecting anything less, why didn't you cancel the score? I hope you know that you can cancel your GMAT score within 72 hours. In that case, it doesn't appear on your score report. If you did cancel it, then nothing to worry. No one will know of this attempt.

Sure, take it in Oct again. Be confident. The very low score might have been an outlier. GMAT is as much a game of nerves as aptitude.
