If you’re looking for a way to keep your furry friend from clawing up your furniture, I can’t help you—I’m not talking about that kind of CAT.
CAT refers to Computerized Adaptive Testing, which is the method used to administer and score the GMAT exam. The concept is deceptively simple, but when pressed for details, we psychometricians usually tell you about this mysterious algorithm that prevents us from telling you what your score will be if you get five questions wrong. I hope to clear up a little bit of the misery…I mean, mystery…here.

As you probably know, you have the opportunity to cancel your scores at the test center on the day of your test—immediately after you complete the test, but before you can view your scores. However, sometimes GMAC cancels scores on the day of the test or afterwards.
On occasion, GMAT scores are cancelled because of security breaches, misconduct, or other violations by the test taker. Schools receiving the score reports have not been able to see why scores were cancelled.
