Should I cancel a 2nd time?

Postby seewhathappens » Mon Oct 03, 2011 2:28 pm

Hello, my practice results are all 170+, i took it in june - cancelled it, I took it again in October messed up 1 section pretty bad, realistic expectation - 155-165. I will take it in december for sure, but I cannot make up my mind on cancelling this October score. I am sure (as much as one can be) that I will score considerably higher on the 3rd try. please advise me.

I bet you got 170 both times.

thank you, but is a "cancel, cancel, ?" worth the risk against a "cancel, mediocre, ?" would that mediocre really destroy any gain from a high score ultimately?

Some schools average your scores. So a low score could hurt you. However, two cancellations also sends the message that you either went unprepared two times in a row or are a total basket case who can't handle stress. Which is worse?
