Now, GMAT students will be able to preview unofficial scores

Our Bureau New Delhi | Updated on March 12, 2018

Prospective business students taking the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) will now be able to preview their unofficial scores before deciding whether to report or cancel the scores. The feature will be available to all test takers and will take effect from June 27 at around 600 test centres around the world.

Currently, test takers are given the option of reporting or cancelling their scores immediately after taking the test and before leaving the test centre. Under the new process, test takers will see their unofficial scores – integrated reasoning, quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning and total – and will be given two minutes to decide whether to accept them. If they do not make a choice, their scores will be cancelled.

In addition, test takers who decide to cancel their scores at the test centre, will be able to reinstate them within 60 days of the test date for a $100 fee. After that, scores will not be retrievable.

“The new score reporting feature gives test takers more certainty and control in the testing process and in how their scores are reported to schools,” said Ashok Sarathy, Vice President - product management at GMAC in a press statement.

Analytical writing assessment scores are unaffected by the change. They are not included on unofficial score reports available immediately but are reported on official score reports delivered within 20 days.

The Graduate Management Admission Council administers the test for use in admissions by more than 6,100 graduate business and management programmes around the world.
