If you are not satisfied with your GMAT scores you can opt for a retest. To retake the exam, simply follow the same procedures. However, you are allowed to take the GMAT once every 31 days, and only 5 times per year. Your GMAT scores are valid for 5 years after you take the exam. Your GMAT score sheet will contain GMAT scores of every GMAT testing that you've undergone in the last 5 years.
