WHICH SCORES SHOULD I REPORT? [#permalink]

I took the GMAT twice and I am not sure which set of scores to report. They are below:

1) Verbal - 39 (89%)
Quant - 41 (64%)
Total - 650

2) Verbal - 29 (56%)
Quant - 48 (87%)
Total - 640

obviously the 650 is better than the 640, but if i report the 650, my quant is only at a 64%, whereas the quant % of my 640 score is at 87%.

if the quant is so much more important than the verbal, i am thinking i may want to report the 640. does anyone have any insight?

Well, IMHO it's better to take the test one more time, as the results of the previous two are very contradictory. I think that the third attempt will be more successive than the first ones.

If you don't have an opportunity to retake the test I'd advise you to report 650 score as it has more balanced in Q/V ratio

It really depends on the program to which you're applying. If you are applying to a place that puts emphasis on quant (Wharton, Cal) then you should report both so that you show the highest possible quant score. If this isn't a concern (which I suspect is not the case), then you would only want to report the 650. If you cannot take the test again I would definitely recommend submitting both.

When you request your scores from ETS, they report the four most recent scores from tests taken within the last 5 years. You don't get to choose which one to report.

Some school apps let you put more than one test result on the application, but they'll still see all of your scores.

Your best bet really is to retake. You need to be much more balanced between Q & V and they will surely ask what happened.
