    How many times can I take GMAT?

    You may take the GMAT as many times as you want. But you could not take it more than once a month. The GMAT score is valid for five years. If you take GMAT more than once, the GMAC will forward the most recent three scores to school you apply to.

    Considering the following factors when you are deciding whether to retake the test:

    • whether your new GMAT scores will be reported to the B-schools early enough to meet application deadlines
    • how well you think you already performed on the real GMAT relative to your realistic potential
    • whether the schools to which you are applying average your GMAT scores or consider only your highest GMAT scores

    Can I cancel my GMAT scores?

    During the test, you can quit the test at any time. When you quit, no score for any test section will be tabulated or recorded by the testing service, or reported to any school.

    After the test, you may cancel your scores immediately after completing the test, while still in the testing room. However, once you request an unofficial score report (immediately after the test), you no longer have the option of canceling your scores.
