The GMAT exam’s Score Preview feature allows you to make the choice to report or cancel your GMAT score following your sitting of the GMAT exam. That means you should be ready to make this decision in advance before you sit down to take the GMAT.
Since you are likely going to be speaking with your target schools before taking the GMAT exam, you should check their websites or ask about any policies or preferences they might have regarding GMAT score reporting. Some schools like
to see all scores from all sittings of the GMAT exam, other schools are fine seeing only your best score. To use Score Preview to your best advantage and present your best application, you should understand these policies at your target schools.
After you complete the test, you will have the opportunity to view your score. You may choose to cancel your scores at this time.
If you cancel your scores:
Your score may also be canceled at the sole discretion of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), the global non-profit council of business schools and administrator of the GMAT exam, and/or Pearson VUE.
If you do NOT cancel your scores:
- You will receive a printed copy of your unofficial report for Quantitative, Verbal, Integrated Reasoning and Total scores at the test center.
- You will have 72 hours to cancel your score online via your MBA.com account for a $25 fee.
- An Official Score Report, including the scores for the Analytical Writing Assessment, will be made available to you and your designated GMAT programs within 20 calendar days after you take the test.
