Report or Cancel a Score? [#permalink]

New post 24 Aug 2017, 17:51
I took the GMAT last month and got 760 (Q50/V44).
Thinking that I probably missed Q51 (and 770) by a single quant question based on ESR, I took the exam again.

On my second try, I got another 760 but with a lower verbal score (Q50/V41).
Given that the Q and IR scores were the same (and the AWA score will probably be the same as well) but that my verbal score went down, I decided to cancel the score.

I won't be taking any more exams (I accepted the fact I just cannot get Q51).
And I am wondering whether I should reinstate the second score or keep it cancelled?
I understand that it may not make much difference, but which would look better to the adcoms?

I think having two scores shows that I was persistent and that 760 on the first try was not a fluke.
On the other hand, Q50/V41 doesn't usually result in 760 (I feel like this combination is more of a 740 or 750), and V44 alone may be more impressive than V44 and V41.

Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Congrats on the 99% score :-)

If you can get a 50 on quant, you probably can get a 51 as well. That said, there is no reason for you to keep the second score.

Congratulations on the 99%le and that two consecutively :D I wonder how could you get Q50 with just 1 question wrong. Was that 1 question wrong in 1st set of questions?

Also there is no point of keeping the second score.

Thank you both for your input and the nice message.

Sorry I should have been clearer. I got two questions wrong in quant in the first exam. I feel like if I had gotten only one question wrong, my score would have been Q51 and potentially 770.

You have an extremely strong score, and I really think that you've taken the right decision here by not taking the GMAT again. The only situation in which I'd recommend that someone with a 760 take the exam again is if the extra time spent on preparation would not have any adverse impact on the rest of the application package, but that is very rarely the case.

Go in with full confidence in this (one) score and put in a lot of work on everything else your schools want. Your score will not hold you back.

All the best!
