Have you received your GMAT score? Wondering what to do after getting the GMAT score?  Well, worry not! Through this article, we will tell you what you should be doing after you get your scores.

##### After the GMAT Exam: At the Test Center

It is important to note that you are provided with three kinds of score reports upon completing your GMAT exam. The three kinds of score reports are — unofficial score report, official score report, and the GMAT enhanced score report.

Once you complete your GMAT exam at the test center, you will be able to view your raw, estimated scores. These are your GMAT unofficial scores and you will have two minutes to accept or cancel scores. If you accept your unofficial scores, the GMAC will proceed to send the official scores when generated to the universities you have authorised. But if you don’t accept the unofficial scores within two minutes, your GMAT score will be cancelled. However, if you are unsatisfied with your GMAT score, you can choose to cancel it. The cancelled GMAT scores do not appear on the score report and the GMAC will not send it to your score recipients.

When you accept your GMAT score at the test center, you can print a copy of your unofficial score report at the test center itself if you wish to. An important thing to note is that your unofficial score report only includes your total GMAT score and scores of the Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Integrated Reasoning sections. The scores of Analytical Writing Assessment are only scored later and hence, unofficial scores for the same are not available.

The official GMAT score report, on the other hand, arrives 20 days after you have written your GMAT exam. This report includes your total GMAT score, its corresponding percentile rank, and individual scores of all four GMAT sections. The official GMAT score report is sent to the universities you have authorised and it will also be delivered to your address.

Now that you are aware of the GMAT scores, GMAT score reports and what to do once you complete your GMAT exam, let us move on to what to do after getting the GMAT score.

##### What to Do After Getting the GMAT Score?

Upon receiving the GMAT score, there are numerous things you will have to do to make sure your university application reaches the university before the deadline. Here are some things you should consider doing after getting your GMAT score:

You must have authorised a couple of universities as your score recipients. Once your official GMAT score report is generated, it is automatically sent to your score recipients. However, after you receive your official GMAT score, you might begin to consider applying to other universities  as well if the need be (as you might have a higher chance of getting admitted due to the GMAT cutoff set by a specific institution). For example, let’s say you have scored 690 on the GMAT. The universities you authorised have a cutoff of 700, but some other universities have a cutoff of 670 to 690. You will have a higher chance of getting into universities whose cutoff scores range from 670 to 690. In such a scenario, you can consider sending additional score reports to your preferred universities. However, you can only do this at an additional cost.

If you opt for an additional score report, there are a couple of things to keep in mind:

• Once you list a university as your score recipient, you do not have the option to remove them. So, do your research and choose wisely.
