If applying to any 1 of those schools, should i mention anything to make them know they got my score. Wat is the process behind selecting 5 schools during exam?

Adding to above, additional reports can be requested any time during which scores are valid, preferably at time of submission.

Here is the process as such.

Before your test day it is advisable to select any 5 schools you are applying to. Before you even begin the actual exam you will have to put in information about these 5 schools. You can do two things - either you note down the GMAT codes for these colleges from their respective website. At test center you can request to copy these codes for your benefit on laminated sheet. Or you can also select these colleges from a drop down through a simple search on presented screen itself. The GMAC (governing body for GMAT) will automatically send test reports to these 5 colleges, fee of which is included in your test fee. Hence, it is advisable to use them.

You don't have to mention anything on your college application. These reports are electronically held by colleges and they match your details and self-reported scores to this database. Most colleges generally ask you your GMAT registration ID to confirm. Even otherwise it is their job to do.

In case you are applying to more than 5 colleges or if your college preferences have changed since taking the test, you must request to send additional test reports to them at a charge. Failure to do so will render your application incomplete since colleges cannot confirm your self-reported scores.

Being an indian u should understand that this attitude is in compliance with the "typical" indian system. Although some people with low scores get through, majority of the junta fails. Anyways thanx for the info about ISB. Anyways dont need it now!



If meeting the pre-set expectations is the only goal, the expectations get lowered over time and it hurts in the long run.
ISB prides itself on its diversity and the variety of experiences that people bring with them. GMAT is just one of the indicators.

You've posted this in the 'Low GMAT Scores' thread? Wow.



Focus on other aspects of you profile, write killer essays or perhaps even consider getting more experience before you apply? This typical Indian obsession with 'What GMAT Score do they want, I'll get it.' is a very short term solution and hurts in the long run.ISB considers the highest score.

Is 720 (Q-51,V-36) a gud enough score to get an ISB admit with 2 years work-ex in TATA Motors as an Assistant Manager? Being a techno-commercial profile, job reponsibilities include interacting with suppliers (mostly plant heads and MDs), and rest tactical and technical work. Have done my B.E. Mech from BITS,Pilani (CGPA - 8.08). OR should i re-write the test and aim for a higher score? Also, if i score lower which of my scores - the earlier 720 or the more recent lower one will be considered for admit?
