How and When do you find out your GMAT scores?
Your Total GMAT score will be displayed at the end of your test (You will be given an option to cancel your score AFTER it is displayed; you used to be able to cancel scores before seeing them only). You will also receive a printout with your scores and percentiles at the test center (unofficial score report). Your AWA score will not be available for up to 20 days. You can receive your official scores by mail or electronically. The electronic option is faster and more convenient.

How to report/send GMAT score reports to schools?
At the beginning of the test, you will be given an option to send your score reports to up to 5 schools. It takes 20 days after the test for the reports to reach the schools. This service is included in the $250 test fee. You can request to send reports to additional schools, and that can be done here. Note that it will cost you$28 per report/school. Additional reports take 7 days to reach schools after the date the scores are reportable. (This means that even if you order reports the day after you take the test, they will only reach schools 27 days after the test date). You can access your GMAT Score Reports online here.

Note: Also, schools have an option to receive the digital photo of you taken at the testing center - therefore, you need to be at least somewhat presentable. Thanks to Vixer for the tip!

What information appears on my GMAT Score report?
Test-taker's copy of the score report (electronic or paper) will contain your demographics information, self-reported GPA and undergrad information, list of up to 5 schools you sent your scores to (this is visible only to you) and all of the GMAT scores taken in the past 5 years. Note that even if you cancel your score (more about that later), no record will appear on your report - this has been updated in 2016.

Here is a sample:

What information is available to business schools on GMAT Score reports?
This is a very interesting part that many test takers do not realize - the score report sent to schools is very different from what you receive.
In addition to all of the information available to you (except list of schools score reports were sent to), Admissions Committee will also receive:
• Your entire GMAT History for the past 5 years (not just the last 5 GMAT scores as appear on the test-taker's report). Some people have been "hiding" poor scores by taking gmat over and over and GMAC has changed their rules as the result. The cut off period is still 5 years.
• Your full AWA essays - make sure you are actually writing something intelligent. If your admissions essays ever become a question, they may be compared to your AWA essays to determine legitimacy.

I can cancel a GMAT Score? Great!
In 2016 GMAC made it substantially easier to cancel your scores. You can now do it at the test center AFTER you see your score OR within 72 hours of taking your GMAT. You can also easily reinstate your score at a later date for a nominal fee of $50. As the result, now schools will really never see more than 1 GMAT score attempt on a report since most will either cancel if they don't achieve the score or keep the score they deemed appropriate, or reinstated an earlier score they canceled. However, schools don't seem to like this idea/approach since it runs into an issue with how they evaluate applications and multiple retakes. A number of schools including Kellogg and others have, as the result, asking applicants about how many times they have taken the Official GMAT. I personally feel this policy will stop since it is a self-reporting honesty question that should be asked because few test takers anticipate it and because GMAC did make it super easy to cancel and reinstate scores. What is the best way to estimate my GMAT score? - GMAT Prep - GMAC's official practice test software (free) includes 2 GMAT tests with retired GMAT questions. It is by far the most reliable and effective way to estimate your GMAT score. It only comes with 2 tests, but the software can be reinstalled and since the question bank is large enough, you can actually take 4 tests without seeing many repeats. More about that here: gmatprep-gmat-prep-powerprep-power-prep-free-tests-77548.html - GMAT Score Estimator/Calculator - you can use multiple test parameters to estimate your final GMAT performance. The estimator works based on 400+ test taker results. GMAT Score Report Fallacies & Myths There are several GMAT Reporting fallacies worth mentioning - let me know if you know others or disagree. Most of the trickery does not add any value but only wastes money. 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.
2. Applicants who are somewhat happy with scores (600-700) but want to retake (usually for 700+), will actually order a report to send to a school before retaking, just in case they score lower on the retake (which is somewhat common unfortunately). Again, most of the time it just wastes money. Schools don't care if you score less on the second attempt. Pathfinder is a good example - he got into Wharton with 720 (first GMAT score) and 690 (retake) on his score report.

I always thought that you had to send your scores the year of application (I may be wrong) but I would bet you can't let your scores sit for 3-4 years. My understanding is that schools clear their physical and electronic files each year.

Hey guys,

I have a quick question on Report Fallacy nbr 2 in bb's post (2.Applicants who are somewhat happy with scores (600-700) but want to retake (usually for 700+), will actually order a report to send to a school before retaking, just in case they score lower on the retake (which is somewhat common unfortunately). Again, most of the time it just wastes money. Schools don't care if you score less on the second attempt. Pathfinder is a good example - he got into Wharton with 720 (first GMAT score) and 690 (retake) on his score report.)

I am in a similar situation (740 first time, scored 710 the second time - reason I retook is because I wanted to increase my quant score, which I did, but the verbal went down :-0). Scored 770-760 on all my practice exams, very frustrating...

Anyway, I sent my report to the school after my first attempt. I will probably send my full application in the next week or so, the application deadline is early June. Will the school see my 710 regardless of whether I ask for a second report to be sent to the school? In other word, will the school be able to see my 2nd test score even if I do not ask for a 2nd official report to be sent?

Thanks a ton

Welcome to GMAT Club!
No, schools won't see your 710. However, even if they do, they usually don't pay attention. The way it works, is you provide your self-reported GMAT score on the application and send in the score report. Then the clerk just verifies that your score is indeed accurate.

So, the schools you sent the reports to after the first attempt will never know about your second one but I would not consider your second attempt a reason not to apply to other schools that don't' have your original score report.

I got 760 with Q51 and V41 in GMAT Prep. The scores I got does not match with the grid here. I should have had 43-44 in Verbal for getting 760 with Q 51 as per this grid. Are the scores/break-ups changing now a days?

Thanks! Yes, it happens that from time to time, scores are off a bit (it is also possible to have the same raw scores but different final overall score).

There is not such thing as too early as long as you are within the valid score window. If the school thinks it wants you, you'll begin receiving thing in the mail from the school advising you to apply, otherwise your score sits dormant waiting for your application.

That may be true, but your score is valid for 5 years. If the school claims it does not have your score, you can contact the GMAC and the person you speak to can check the submission file to ensure your score was submitted to said school. (I had to do this once when a school claimed it did not receive my score)

Quote:
How long are GMAT® scores valid?

Your GMAT score is valid for five years, so you have the flexibility of “banking it”—choosing to start your graduate studies right after university or later on. Remember, if at first you don’t succeed, you can take the GMAT exam again. Remember, though, that all of your GMAT scores from the past 5 years will appear on your Official Score Report.

Is there a point for me to send a score to a school that I have not decided to apply for? I have a similar dilemma. I don't expect to apply for B-school for at least 3 years, but am taking the GMAT in a few months. Should I send my score to schools that I *anticipate* applying for or just leave it for later?

I'm thinking that the best course of action is to send some of my scores to schools that I would consider but are not my dream schools - and during the actual process re-submit to the ones I apply for at $28 a pop. This gives me a bit of a buffer in case things don't turn out really well on test day. Can anyone provide some more information on their experiences with this, if they've gone through the same? I wonder if schools would start sending solicitations if the score you submitted was very high. Thanks for the help! There is a limited window for the "free" submission of scores. You should take advantage of this as even if the schools clear their records, you can request the GMAC re-submit your score to the school (you're already paid for the school to have that score, you don't have to pay for it again). No matter what, when you apply the school will receive ALL your scores. The schools can also "see" score cancellations. There is no real buffer the way you have it defined above. The only thing you're doing is donating more money to the GMAC by giving the group$28 per score submission three years from now.

Use your five schools when you take the GMAT. The schools won't look at your score UNLESS the school REALLY wants you to apply. If said school really wants you to apply, you'll start receiving stuff through the mail from the school. Otherwise, the score just sits in the submission file waiting to be tacked to an app.

If you had an AWA score with your report (which I assume you did), then the schools already have it (sent electronically), though it may take a few days for the schools to process it.

Better yet:

Log in to your account @ mba.com and check your score fulfillment. You can see what schools GMAC has sent the submissions files to. If a school claims to have not received it, contact the GMAC and the agent you speak to you can confirm the submission.

Is there anyway to get the latest distribution grid ?

Hi bb, Bunuel, and any other GMAT experts who care to weigh in,

I'd like to consult your expertise. I took a first crack at the GMAT in early January and got a 710 (Q44, V42). Stated percentiles were quant 57 and verbal 96, overall percentile 91. I made a stupid decision to buy the not-so-in-depth in-depth score report which said that my percentile rankings were quant 58, verbal 96, and overall 92. This was confusing but I didn't contact the GMAT folks because I am planning on rewriting, and hoping to get a higher score this time around.

I took an official practice test today, and got a 710 (Q46, V42), with percentiles quant 71, verbal 96, and overall 92. Unfortunately 3 of my 7 verbal errors were in the first 5 questions, argh. Anyway, I had taken this same practice test in early December and got a couple of the same questions but luckily couldn't remember for the life of me what the answers were or how I approached the questions last time. In December my score was 710 (Q45, V42) with percentiles quant 68, verbal 96, and overall 92.

I am wondering, why did I get 710 on both practice tests if my quant score was higher? According to the table in this topic, I should have scored 720 today. I'm also wondering - why did I get 91 percentile on the actual test in January but the in-depth analysis said 92 percentile? In addition, the quant percentiles table posted here says 46 is 64 percentile??

I'd really appreciate your help on this. I'm rewriting Friday next week, and I absolutely need my quant to be over 70th percentile - my school of choice would require it. And a 720 would be better than a 710, like 92 percentile would be better than 91.

Cheers!

Hi. It is fairly complicated and simple at the same time.
The section scores (Q and V) are actually independent of the final score, you are almost graded twice - the first time to get a section score and then the second time to get teh overall and that is why it is possible to have different section scores and the same overall or vice versa.

As to the percentiles and 71 vs. 64 - the GMAT prep software probably has dated information from 2012 when Q46 was a 71st percentile. Now it is 64th, as mid-quant percentiles have been eroded. Here is a listing from 2012:

I'm trying to figure out what percentiles Q48 V42 and Q48 V41 would equate to today, overall and by section. I got these scores on GMATprep practice tests recently but have heard that the GMATprep scoring algorithm is from 2012.

Does anyone have any idea? Many thanks

Easy... overall your score is the same as you saw on the GMAT prep - that score stays the same. You don't need to bother with sectional scores if you got a total score....
As to the percentiles, you can look em up in the table on the first page.

Hi,

I see the attachment is from 2012. Does the matrix change over time? I tried to google and found that V51 was 97 percentile. Also, I got a V24 in my previous GMAT attempt and my score report said 37 percentile but as per this sheet it should have been lower than 36 percentile.

No, it does not. The matrix is approximation based on the large history/feedback/research of student scores.
The percentiles may change but they have nothing to do with the hard V and Q scores.

so, if I got 1 question right, for example, a 600-700 question, then the next question will turn into 700+ question?

Yes, though depending on your position within the test (first vs 30th question), difficulty change speed varies. For example, in the first 5-10 questions, the difficulty changes quite a bit, so while you may have been served Q33 or V27 question first, if you get it right, the second may be Q40 and V32 and if you still get it right, then it goes to Q45 and V35 but in my experience it takes a bit longer for difficulty to get to "700-level" - more like by question 12 is when it gets really tough/hard.

Keep in mind that on the real GMAT you will have experimental questions which may be out of difficulty order or you may be served with lower difficulty in the mid-section of the GMAT.

Good Luck!

Great post. Would have saved me lots of research/time if it would have been posted months ago.
