I know the table is not perfect but I think it is strange that I am 20 points under what the table predicts. I got Q49, V47 which says 780, but I got a 760. Wondering if this is a product of percentile changes.

Hello everyone.
It's exciting to see the range of scores, and so many positive results. I've noticed it is hard to find people in real life that want to talk about GMAT so I'm excited to join the discussion here.
I've benefited quite a bit from gmatclub, and wanted to share my progress.
My goal for the GMAT is 700+, and I take my first test on 12/16.

I enrolled in a live Veritas prep class that meets two nights per week (started 11/4), and have been studying since 11/3. I took a practice test about 2 weeks into my studies and scored a 530 (on 11/16). After another 2 classes and nightly studying I managed to score a 570 on 11/23. I was glad to see improvement, but still did not feel confident while reading most of the problems. My class met two nights in a row due to Thanksgiving holiday, and after another handful of nightly study sessions I finally reached 600(11/27). I finally overcame some repetitive issues I was having, spent another weekend studying GMAT, and was gaining confidence each day. On 12/2 I was eager to do another practice test, and that night reached another milestone scoring a 660. I have continued my rigorous study routine, and plan to exceed my goal of 700 on test day. A lot of my early improvement came from simply relearning old material, I've put a lot of time and effort into studying and it's starting to show.

Good luck to everyone.

Hi,

I don't know whether this has been asked before.

I want to ask that can we report the scores before sitting in the exam since in the middle of anxiety while appearing for exam it would be difficult to remember GMAT institute codes of different colleges.

If this has been asked before then sorry for the duplicate post.

Hi,

I'm planning to apply for SP Jain, PGPM program and the deadline to provide the GMAT score is 15th Aug'14. I posted a question to the admissions team of the college, confirming what will be the right time to appear for the exam as I have read it on the official gmat website that it takes 20 days for the score to reach the college. I got a reply that immediate score is acceptable. Can someone please explain what immediate score is and how will I be able to send that to the college?

Immediate score is the unofficial scorecard that you receive just after completing your GMAT exam at the center. Your official score reaches the b-schools appx 18-21 days after your GMAT day

Thanks a lot!! :)

Just one more clarification.

Will I be able to submit my unofficial score to the college? The last date to submit the form is 31st July and last date to submit gmat score is 15th Aug. Is it possible that I take the test in 2nd week of Aug like around 10th of Aug?

Yes, since you do not actually submit anything yourself except type in a number (a few numbers) on the application.
You have to take the GMAT no later than July 31st when your application is due.

1. Some will not send their score reports to schools until they are actually satisfied with their GMAT Score, so applicants would not request any reports at the test but only after they have seen the score. Though logical, this is not recommended. With the cost of $28 per score report, you are wasting anything between $28 and $140. Schools only use the highest of gmat scores. One way or another they will see that 450, if that's what you are concerned with.


That is not true any more, now you can see your results b4!

I believe you are now given an option to see the score before canceling. Have they also changed when you send the report to schools? i.e. you no longer enter it in the beginning of your test?

Hi,

I took the GMAT last month and selected 5 schools to send my scores to on the test day. I did not score quite to my expectations and I am going to take the GMAT again. My question is that should I choose a different set of schools to send my scores this time.

To be clear, my top 5 schools are still the ones I selected on the 1st attempt and I want them to see my 2nd attempt scores as well. So will sending the scores to them once allow them to see all my scores when I apply to them and therefore I can choose a different set of schools or do I need to resend my scores to my top 5.

Thanks in advance

I took the GMAT earlier this week. You do get a chance to cancel after seeing the score but you cannot change the schools.

Hi,
Is it possible to show my only recent score to the universities ? My GMAT score report includes all my attempts that I don't want to present in my applications.

Thanks and Regards

Here is a formula, which you may use to estimate your rough GMAT score
GMAT score = (Qscore+Vscore)*7.35+70
(with +/- 10 points deviation).
