When you've taken the GMAT, but haven't really decided on graduate school or business school and suddenly you find yourself interested again, what do you do? If the test is four years behind you (or more) what are your options to find you old GMAT score?

The good news is that you do have some options. The bad news if you're looking for an old GMAT score, is that you'd better hope you took the test no longer than ten years ago, because that's how long GMAC (the Graduate Management Admission Council) keeps old GMAT scores around.

After ten years, you're going to have to take it again, which really isn't that big of a deal if you think about it. Considering that most graduate and management programs won't accept a GMAT score older than five years, you'd have to retake it anyway.

It's Only Been a Few Years

So, you took the GMAT a couple years ago and now you don't remember your login or even your scores. How do you access your old scores, send them to your schools of choice, and get into the school you've dreamed of attending? Here's how!

The GMAC allows you to order old GMAT scores by phone, mail, fax or online, with different fees assessed for each method. Please note that there is a $10 fee assessed for every customer service phone call, so I'd request your score reports via email or online contact form if I were you!

You May Want to Scrap Your Old GMAT Scores Anyway

GMAC is always making improvements to the GMAT exam. The test you took even a few years ago is not identical to the one you'd take today. For instance, if it's been a long time (prior to the Next Generation GMAT introduced in 2012), you may not have taken the Integrated Reasoning section, which can really show off your ability to synthesize materials, analyze several facets to form an answer, and solve complex multi-dimensional problems.

There's also an enhanced score report, which shows you how you performed on specific skills tested in each section, how long it took you to answer each question, and how your skill level compares with other people who took the test from the past three years.
