Hello,

I'm retaking the TOEFL in a couple of days. I scored 102 in the first attempt three months ago and I think I will do better now (after GMAT..).

However, in case I score less, do you know which score the BSs will consider?

Thanks

Usually the higher score rule applies to both GMAT and TOEFL. Good Luck!

Rid82, I don`t know how it works with the GMAT but with TOEFL, the scores you get are arranged in a table and you choose which one to send.There is no way in hell B-schools find out about other scores than the one you decide to send them, which is usually the highest :)

In fact there are 4 schools you can send the schools "for free" and you have to choose them before the exam.

The issue here is that in the first exam I didn't send the score to school X, and now I plan to do it. Therefore, in case I score less, they will receive my lowest score and then later I will send the other score.

So they will have received both scores, and they will see that I scored less in the most recent one.

complicated right? :roll:

I think you shouldnt have any problems.TOEFL is all about reaching a certain minimum score that is required.
However, I wouldnt send a score I dont know just to spare 17$
