Thanks very much to this forum, I was lucky to score a 760 on the GMAT yesterday.

However, I was a bit disappointed as this was lower than my last 4 official practice tests - so I know I am capable of more. I also knew I was not
performing my best (I didn't sleep as well as I hoped to, the test center was a bit busier and disorienting than I imagined).

Thus, I'm debating cancelling my score during the 72 hour window and retaking, knowing I could in theory reinstate my score if I were
to do worse the second time around (which I wouldn't expect to, but you never know). I wouldn't plan on studying more, other than brushing
up to stay fresh; I think the benefit would be walking in with a clear head knowing what to expect. I also know I'm in the territory where it could
look bad to retake, but it's hard not to knowing I walked out feeling like I could have done better.

Is there a way for a school to know if I reinstate and automatically submit a cancelled score (i.e. the date on the score report or some other factor?)

Thanks very much!

Hi gmatfun12 ,

That's a fantastic score and cancelling such scores could be THE BIGGEST mistake anyone can do.

I understand that you are aiming for more than this and you can always opt for another try and score a better one.

But consider the fact that what if due to some reasons, you don't end up this score again?

Ideally I believe you don't even need to give another try as you are already at par for all the top schools but if you still wanna give it a try, you can show them that you scored 760 and then you got 800. :-D

This will show your dedication to joining that school.

Therefore, please donot cancel this score friend.

All the best for your application process. :)
