Hi,

This might be slightly off-topic, but can I get a review for the GMAT test centre in Satyam Mall, Satellite? I do have a choice between Ahmedabad and Bangalore for taking the test, but I prefer Ahmedabad due to proximity. Info about the facilities like air conditioning and restrooms, condition of the computers, dos and don'ts etc. will be extremely helpful to decide. Thanks!

Hi Ronak. I am sorry I do not have the exact information you seek. However, I believe most centers comply with the minimum threshold of amenities recommended by Pearson VUE. I would suggest you take the exam at a location that is convenient for you. Ahmedabad itself has multiple testing centers and so does Bangalore. In case you required any help or have any questions related to preparing for the exam, I will be more than happy to help you out.

Well, this is my profile. I am currently attending another Entreprenurship event - Narmada Prerna Yatra which is about spending 4 days in Gujarat and meet some local role models, and in future looking forward to attend Jagriti Yatra organized by Tata Group and others.

Now, I seek your advise on the following fronts -

1. What are my chances to pursue graduation in top 10 B-schools in world?

2. Do I need to mention those ECA that I put in OTHERS section above - will it leave a negative impact - I was not able to attend those because of sponsorships and limiting holidays I have while working full time?

3. Will my academics become a problem for me given I didn't attain 7/10 GPA in my under-grad?

4. Also, for the college projects I mentioned ahead - I did not have very good grades on my transcript,will that be a negative point?

5. Moreover, some business courses I pursue over in my under-grad in engineering course,also doesn't reflects good grades too, will that effect the admissions as well?

6. What score should I target for in GMAT which I am planning to attempt in October 2014 end? Please define the range. And the coreespondings permutations and combinations as well for different scores.

7. What all extra should I pursue to cancel out the negativity in my profile. Looking for genuine advice !! Please help

HI Shalabh,

I will try to answer your questions in the order that you have listed.

1, your chances at top 10 b-schools- I did not see a GMAT score, so I assume you are still to take one. Aim for a score closer to 750. YOUR GPA is average and you have not mentioned much about your work related achievements (although I assume you have performed well in that category). I would say you that at best, you should aim for 1-2 b-schools in the top 10. You have a good profile, and the top 11-25 b-schools will be more open to accepting you on condition of a high GMAT score.

2. I see no point in putting these activities if they were not started. Mention the stuff that you have done because that is the real stuff.

3- with the top 10 US b-schools, yes, its likely to be a problem.

4 & 5 - Admissions do look at individual grades of subjects.  However its going to be difficult to comment here because the application in itself is viewed in totality. I don't know what subjects these are and how they fit in the bigger picture. 

6 - 730- 800

7. Focus on the positives. 

hope that helps,

ivyctor 2010 @ivyctor2010 750

as of now, please focus on the GMAT, You should try for a score above 720 to get into top B Schools. Academic scores will matter and so will ECs. You should talk of involvements and initiatives more than talking about your being a member of certain groups/ associations...All these can be taken care of later. Right now a good decent score will matter the most.

Right time to go for the exam is when you are confident about your preparation. If you are confident with your mocks... 2 weeks sounds good.

Remember, mocks are there just to give you experience as close to the real test as possible.

It depends a lot on how you are appearing for the Mocks, which mocks are you using etc. Your real score can fluctuate a lot... (+ve or -ve).

How much score is sufficient for ISB...It depends on your background, acads, etc. Target 730+ to be on the positive side.

The below article might be useful for you:

Hope it helps!

ivyctor2010
ivyctor 2010 @ivyctor2010 750

Your confidence level should tell you whether or not your are prepared. Consistent marks in mocks and scoring around 650+ is decent to decide on the actual GMAT. Take a date which is convenient for you. For ISB, you need to target above 710.

Some say that an asteroid colliding with Earth was responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs. It is indeed likely that such a collision did occur and that it caused the death of the vast majority of dinosaurs. However, new evidence suggests that perhaps tens of thousands of dinosaurs lived far enough from the point of collision that they were not directly killed by the impact or by the drastic change in temperature when immense dust clouds created by the impact blocked the sun. Some other force must have been responsible for the death of these remaining dinosaurs.

Which of the following, if true, is an assumption made by the author of the above argument?

(Post your explanation as well please !)
