The GMAT results are a gateway to MBA programs at leading global universities. Along with the details of the GMAT result and score, you should also note that the tests in 2021 are also being conducted online with daily appointments. Scores of the online tests will not be a part of the score reports issued for examinations held at test centers. 

GMAT Result Dates

GMAC (Graduate Management Admission Council), the body holding the entrance test, is responsible for announcing the GMAT result and score. The GMAT result dates are not fixed and aspirants can view the scores by logging into their account. The results can be accessed around 20 days from the examination date and the percentile/scores are mentioned on the scorecard. Aspirants should carefully check all information and notify the authorities if they come across any discrepancies. The GMAT cut-off marks for various chosen institutions should also be checked carefully. 

How to check GMAT Results? 

The GMAT result and score can be viewed by aspirants online and the examination can be taken 5 times a year. Students can check their official scores 21 days after the examination and they are valid for 5 years from the exam date. If an aspirant is dissatisfied with his/her scores, he/she may reappear for the test. 

GMAC sends email alerts about the availability of official scores. The emails also contain all instructions for accessing the scores online. You can also choose to receive the results via post while registering for the GMAT. The score reports can be categorized into scores obtained within 3 weeks from the test, unofficial/official score reports, and enhanced score reports. 

More information about scores

Scores for 4 out of 5 sections, i.e., Integrated Reasoning, Verbal, Total Scores, and Quantitative are displayed immediately after the test. Candidates get two minutes to cancel or accept the scores after which they are canceled automatically. In case of acceptance, candidates can get a printout of the scores displayed. The scores can also be canceled within 72 hours from the examination for a cancellation fee. 

The official score report also contains AWA (Analytical Writing Assessment) scores along with previous GMAT scores and percentile rankings. You can  choose up to 5 schools for sending the official score reports during registration. More schools can be added to the list by paying a fee.

The official reports containing a digital photograph and your test essays are issued only on special request. You may also purchase the enhanced score report which has details about the type of questions, focus areas, and other actionable insights.
