Do Abroad Universities Verify Test Scores

Hey most universities in Europe are waiving gmat/gre scores but the University I want (not hard to get into) isn't. I suck at taking standardized tests and everything else on my resume is solid. They said if I get below the 75th percentile they won't even consider me and I honestly know I can't make that and the deadline is fast approaching. I'm desperate to the point where I already edited a test score file and it looks legit. Do these universities even check to see if it's real? I'm thinking I could get away with it

Seriously? 75th percentile is unachievable for a school that's already supposed to not even be hard to get into? Don't bother trying to fake your way in because if by some chance it works, you probably can't even survive the course load. Standardized testing is the biggest fucking joke on this planet and that's where you're choosing to sacrifice personal integrity? This is genuinely one of the most pathetic posts I've seen on this forum.

Come on man, instead of self doubting yourself give it at least a shot. If you can't make it, move on and get into another school but don't build your future on a lie.
