Power Outage: Will My Score Get Cancelled? [#permalink]

Hey everyone,

Enjoyed reading threads from this forum. So, wanted to see if anyone could answer my question. I gave my second attempt of the GMAT two weeks ago, previously scoring 720 (Q49, V40, IR6, AWA6), and I was happy to see that I got a 760 (Q50, V42, IR8, AWA which I followed the GMAT club template like last time). I saw a few threads on this forum that GMAC has previously cancelled test takers scores. At my testing center, the power went out 25 minutes into Quant. It took about 40 minutes and then the power came back on. During that time, all the test takers, for whatever exam they were giving since GMAT was not the only test taken there, sat in the common area waiting. When I returned to my computer, the time was more or less the same as I had before. I finished the quant, took a break, finished the verbal, took a break, and finished IR and awa. No problems after that. Thus, does anyone have any insights on the possibility of my test getting cancelled, when I should expect that (if it does), and what is the likelihood that appeal it would work. I am trying to go for a JD/MBA, so I really want to focus on the LSAT and leave the GMAT.

Thanks!

Hi DBZ2019,

Did YOU file any type of complaint about this incident? I assume that with a 760, you did NOT. Based on what you described, since the ENTIRE Computer Lab went down - that 'event' would almost certainly require a more immediate investigation from the people who are in charge of those things (as opposed to the type of investigation that would occur if just one computer went down, for example). As a general rule, the Pearson investigators tend to do their jobs and make their 'rulings' in under a month. If it's really been 2 full weeks - and you have not heard anything yet either way - then I'd suspect that your Score would more likely be validated (since it's likely that all the scores would be given the same ruling - and if they weren't all 'cancelled' at any time in the 2 weeks after the incident, then they would be more likely to all be cleared as Official). That having been said, there isn't really anything that you can do to speed up the process, so you'll just have to wait for an Official announcement. If you find that you just can't wait any longer to find out, then you could call Customer Service and ask.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
