Need urgent advice on whether or not i should reinstate my score

my second gmat score was Q47V45 740. my third score was Q48V36 690. both the IR and AWA scores are essentially equal. clearly my previous score was better (overall) and i immediately cancelled my third and latest score. yet, i am applying for msc finance & accounting and the universities im applying to do prefer strong quant skills (particularly since my major was not very quantitative). im just wondering whether it would be best to reinstate my 3rd score just to show off the minor jump from Q47 to Q48 and so risk showing that my verbal cratered from V45 to V36 and that my overall score dropped below 700....

applications are being sent this weekend so any and all help on this topic much appreciated

in case anyone has personal experience, im applying to oxford, lse, warwick, etc

Hi takasar12 ,

I wouldn't recommend it. It's too much of a risk to show a big drop in composite/Verbal just for one extra point on Quant--unless your programs have told you that they don't care about Verbal at all, which is unlikely--or unless your program of choice requires a score of Q48 or above.

thanks for the reply Brian and sorry for taking so long getting back to you. the problem is largely that some universities (imperial for example) specifically state: "Submitting a GMAT or GRE result is also highly recommended. A score of at least 48/60 in the quantitative section of GMAT, or at least 159 in the quantitative section of GRE will add weight to your application"
