GMAT: If I registered but didn't go, what would it be like on the report?

I registered for a GMAT exam in Jan last year but wasn't able to go. How would it affect my GMAT report? I heard that if you go to the exam and cancel the score, then it won't show up on the report sent to B schools.

Does anyone know what it is gonna be like if not going at all (therefore can't even click cancel)?

Really, u sure?

I'm pretty sure it's written in their manual. Rather, if you sign up and go but cancel your score, schools can see that you have a cancelled score.

Haha things happen, can't control everything. Other than that, is there going to be other consequences?

Should not be shown in your score report

Why don't you cancel your test instead of just no showing?

But no, it won't show up.

I accidentally end up in hospital that weekend and forgot the whole thing...

Well, that's about as good a reason as any. Hope everything is ok! You're ok on the GMAT front but out $250. good luck next time

I had same question- I called them and they said it doesn't count as an attempt and won't show up on your report. Only downside is losing the $250.

Even if it did show up, schools really don't care about how many attempts you make now, they are much more concerned with the top score. I know people who had 3-4 attempts with low scores but were solid in other areas and schools just tell them to retake until they're in range and they'll get in. That includes M7. It's too hard for the schools to judge relatively to other cancelled scores now that the numbers aren't reported.

So basically a 780 on first try is the same as a 780 on the 5th try?
