Hi

I was suspended the GMAT exam(1st time) today because the proctor suspected that I read the studying materials during 2nd break. But I was just about to check my GMAT exam confirmation letter at that time. I remembered there were cancellation rules on the confirmation letter, and I just wanted to check whether the letter mentions about voluntary cancellation rules, so that I will know what actions to take if the unofficial score is not ideal. The letter was put in the middle of my notebook. I opened my notebook, trying to find and take out the confirmation letter. Immediately after I opened the notebook, the proctor asked me to stop doing that and said they need to stop my exam.

The proctor reported this to GMAC and I am worried that there will be a policy violation record on my GMAT reports.

I am just wondering if anyone had similar situations before? If there is a violation record on my GMAT reports, do I still have a shot at the TOP MBA program?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Lycoris7 ,
Did the proctor provide any insight into the type of notation that will be displayed on your GMAC Score card ?
The below link has the types of notation used when scores are canceled -

If it is a P , then it won't be that bad and you should explain the same in your optional essay .

If nothing else works out , you always have the option to take the GRE !!

Hope this helps!! :)

Hi Skywalker18,

Thanks a lot! I guess it will be a P but hope it doesn't influence a lot.

I don't think a violation like this will automatically eliminate you from consideration. Depending on the ultimate classification of your violation, it may be something you need to touch on in your optional essay. But if you are otherwise a strong candidate this will not blindly sabotage your chances
