Hi I just retook the GMAT and moved from 680 (Q49, V34, IR6) to 720 (Q49 75%, V40 95%, IR2). There were a few issues with the testing centre (the calculator was too slow to use it for any question) and the centre admin couldn't solve the issue and I had to rush past the IR section and ended up with a horrible score of 2.

I have a quantitative background (B. Sc Hons Mathematics) and work experience of 2.5 years in the education field. I plan to apply to quant heavy programs like those of Sloan, Stern, etc. Should I retake the GMAT to improve my quant and IR scores? (Also, will they consider the fact that I had IR 6 in my previous attempt?)

I plan to apply in R2, and, if retaking the test, will take it in the next two weeks itself.

Wellllll... if you have the time to both retake AND do your application, and are confident of being able to get a higher score, there is no reason for you not to try!

Good luck!

Best,
