Immediately after completing your GMAT exam, your unofficial scores for the Quantitative Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning, and Integrated Reasoning, as well as your Total Score are previewed on screen. Your Analytical Writing Assessment score is not included in this unofficial score view.
Exams Taken at a Test Center: After the exam, when your unofficial score is previewed, you will have two minutes to accept or cancel it. If you don’t make a decision, your score will automatically be canceled. If you accepted your score, you still have the option to cancel it up to 72 hours after the completion of your exam via mba.com. This option to cancel may take up to 24 hours to appear, depending on the location of your test center. There is a fee to cancel your score after leaving the test center. If you accept your score, you will receive a print-out of your unofficial score preview prior to leaving the test center. You can view a sample unofficial score preview here.

You will receive an email notification when your Official Score Report is available on mba.com. Printout of unofficial score previews are not available for GMAT exams delivered online.
Your Official Score Report is available via your mba.com account typically within 7 business days, but may take up to 20 business days to process.
