Thumbs up RE-TAKING THE TEST - August 31st, 2008

You cannot take the test more than once in a calendar month, even if you have taken it and cancelled your scores. If you do test more than once in a calendar month, your new scores will not be reported and your fee will be forfeited. You may repeat the test once in any subsequent month. However, it is unlikely to result in significant increase in your score. For most people repeating the test from a lower than average score - the average gain from the first to second testing is approximately 30 points in the test total score.

Sometimes it is necessary to take the test more than one time. For example, a Business School may request more recent scores than you have on record. But, unless your scores seemed to you to be unusually low ( being honest with yourself) or unless there are other reasons to think that you did not do your best, taking the test again may not be helpful.

If your scores are unusually low compared with other indicators of your preparation for management study, consider the reasons that may have caused this. If, for example, you did not fully or properly prepare, you probably did not perform to the best of your ability. In this case, adequate preparation before re-testing will help you demonstrate your actual ability.

If you repeat the test, your scores from the latest test and the two most recent test dates in the past five years will be reported to the Schools you designate.
