Lots of good advice and points to think about in this thread. For a lot of people, if you think that you will regret not giving it another chance or that you left points on the table (e.g. scored higher in practice exams), can't hurt to try again (in my opinion). I've heard of people just retaking 16 days later (minimum time between tests) without studying and seeing massive jumps, so you really never know!

I got a 720 Q48 V42 on the online version and I'm aiming a top B-School via a Fulbright scholarship, I'm 35 yo so I guess gmat score is very decisive in my case. Should I retake the exam since they're giving us a second chance with physical whiteboard or should I instead focalise my efforts on the admission process.? Thanks in advance

The retake option also depends on what program you are applying to. For most of the people here, the program would be an MBA but there are others who are applying for a PhD.

Regarding PhD programs, unless you have scored a unexpectedly sad score, it is advisable to focus on strengthening other parts of your application. This would include research and professional experiences and academic skills. Trying to eke out a few more points by repeatedly taking the test will _not_ garner favorable points. PhD programs are not looking for GMAT maximizers.

For MBA programs, the situation is different. Here it may help to improve your GMAT score if your goal is to get into the "top" programs.
