New GMAT Features Launching July 19

by OfficialGMAT » Thu Jun 25, 2015 5:51 am
GMAC is introducing three new features to improve and streamline the GMAT exam experience for test takers. GMAC asked thousands of candidates and test takers about their GMAT experience and how to make it better. We listened and took action. These new features and options for test takers are effective July 19, 2015.

Cancelled Scores Removed from Score Reports
Repeat Exams Allowed after 16 Days
Authentication Code Replaced with Date of Birth

Read more about these changes and what they mean for you on our blog. Also, if you have any questions about these changes, feel free to ask right here.

When you say "repeat" exams - do you mean anyone can take the exam every 16 days or is this just a one time chance.

For example : Could I take the GMAT like this: July 1st, July 17th, August 2nd, August 18th and so on..

Second Question :- Can we please retroactively cancel old GMAT scores.........

This is huge! the 31 day wait was very annoying for test takers who had prepared adequately, were genuinely ready, but just had a bad game day performance. Allowing people to take the test 16 days later is really a huge benefit so that people in the situation just described can jump right back on the horse and don't have to sit around twiddling their thumbs for a whole month!

Looking at the FAQ on, it looks like the policy is retroactive, but only for scores that were already canceled on test day. It doesn't look like test takers can go back and cancel scores that they have already accepted.

Still, this is huge news!
