We have been getting a lot of calls and e-mails about the GMAT and GRE, so I thought I would just make it crystal clear for everyone what we need from you on this component on the written application.

First of all, everyone needs to have taken the GMAT or the GRE (and I promise, we really don’t care which one) to submit an application. You must take the whole test. For the GMAT, this means the Quantitative, Verbal, Written and Integrated Reasoning portions of the test. If you took the GMAT before June 5th, 2012, you do not need the Integrated Reasoning portion of the exam. For the GRE, this means the Quantitative, Verbal and Written portions of the test.

Secondly, every applicant must request that Pearson (for the GMAT) or ETS (for the GRE) send an official score report directly to HBS. Everyone must do this when you apply to HBS.

In the written portion of your application, there is a question asking for your scores. If you have not received your official score in the mail (because it takes time to get this), you may report your unofficial GMAT or GRE score. This is the score that comes up on the screen when you have finished taking the test and includes scores for the verbal and quantitative portions of the test. If you have received your official score from the test taking entity, you can fill those responses into the application, but we still need the official score to come directly from Pearson or ETS.

If you have taken the test multiple times, you may report your best score from a single date or test sitting. You may not combine your best verbal score and your best quant score.

If you are applying now, you need to have taken the test before January, 2008. If you took it before that date, you will need to retake the test.

I hope this helps.
