GMAC just announced that from July 19th 2016, canceled scores will no longer appear in score reports. This means that a student can take the GMAT as many times as they want, and as long as they cancel the score, it will not appear in the score report sent to the schools.

Full press release here: http://www.mba.com/us/the-gmat-blog-hub ... m-features

I see this as helping GMAC increase their test taking revenue because more students will be open to making a greater number of attempts without having the downside of the multiple attempts looking bad on the score report. At least this is my reading.

This is big news indeed! And, the policy is retroactive. It will even apply to tests that you've taken before July 19. (BTW, it goes into effect July 19, 2015, not in 2016.) This surely won't hurt GMAC's bottom line.

Also, GMAC will now let people retake the test after 16 days, rather than 31 days. But, the maximum number of times you can take the GMAT in a year is still five.

Actually, I don't think you can retroactively cancel a score that you previous accepted when you took the test. Take a look at the 4th entry in the FAQ on MBA.com:

GMAC cannot remove the “C” designation in school databases from score reports sent to schools prior to July 19, 2015. If the candidate chooses to send another score report, the new report will not include the cancelled scores. Also, only test scores cancelled by the candidate will be removed from score reports. GMAC will continue to report other types of score cancellations, including technical issues or policy violations.
