Have a low GMAT but high aspirations? Far too many MBA applicants think that this is an obvious mismatch, but it may not necessarily be! This still does not mean that the doors to all top MBA programs are open wide for you, but it does mean that not all doors are closed either!

Hi Judith, you have indeed good GMAT score and enough of work experience to apply for MBA courses and may look for difference options. Although we are having Master of Finance course of one of the best globally, however we offer MBA in General Management only, if that would be of your interest, you could approach us accordingly.

2. How much GMAT score will be required to get to top Indian MBA colleges such as IMT Ghaziabad and NMIMS ?

3. Would top GMAT colleges in consider a good score in QA and VA but comparatively less score in critical writing ?

4. What is the preferred month of one should appear for GMAT for Indian as well as colleges abroad.

5. Will Colleges not except your GMAT score if they are not listed in the five colleges as required in the application process ?

6. Does work experience matters a lot for the GMAT and if no work experience will my application be considered ?

Hi Arun,

As mentioned by Nick, once you order your score to any of the university, you must know the certain code university has for GMAT or GRE. Once you order it from the respected examination center, they send it to university and it is being received at the Head Office of university. If you have started your application in that university already, it will be added to your profile, if not yet, you may receive a call or email from respected university to check on your interest and application process. Kind regards

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?

What was your GMATPrep scores? Also while preparing where do you think you faced the problem?

See as a future manager, post your MBA, you will be expected to understand such situations and provide an answer. So you should start with GMAT and apply it over here.

Dear Single Piece, For settling abroad the best you could do is pursue a course from a university abroad and get a jobthere. Pgp from IIM doesnt ensure any foreign placement..very few people get placed outside india from IIMs.

Hi,

I had given GMAT a second shot yesterday .Got a dismal 620 and was shocked.

prev score was 640 (arnd a yr back)

Through the year I prepared with OG 12,13.Kaplan material.SC grail

I took GMAT club tests.

Last GMAT prep which I took had got 740 and felt very confident that at least I would get 700 +.
Though I do feel that this was the 4th retry which I took.
Is this kind of drop possible.

My scores of GMAT Prep were as follows :-

GMATPrep(1) :- 640
GMATPrep(2):- 680
GMATPrep(3):- 710
GMATPrep(4):- 740

Had given MGMAT and got scores of :-

MGMAT(1):- 640
MGMAT(2):- 660
MGMAT(3):-680
MGMAT(4):-690

My entire preparation looks down the drain.Is there a cause that I overstudied and could have relied more on previously looked upon SC's. I am totally down and would seek any help .

Is there a serious glitch in the study pattern and is it really feasible to take it 3rd time.

How about provide proper citations when you get 'inspired' else it is called plagiarism.

@Wonderful_idea I first read it and said "Wow! This is exactly what I would say". Then I said "Wait is this one of my students?" then I said "No way! The language is just what I use". Then I did some googling and voila I find that you have plagiarised from the PG article I wrote. Read page 53 here:

Learning from the wrong stuff can be one of the resaon. The Internet is the biggest bane of GMAT test takers.Not because now material hither to inaccessible is now just a click away, but because there was a good damn reason that material was in accessible in the first place! GMAC, the creator of the GMAT, spends $2,000on a single question (a clearly inflated number,but I picked it up from a copyright suit they had filed against a company). Test-prep companies spend $20. Haven't you heard of – you get what you pay for!Many companies create books for a specific test and then try to re market them for GMAT. A classic case is the LSAT – the test for law. A good amount of material from LSAT CR books have found their way into GMAT books. Many techniques that test-companies sell are for pure marketing purpose. When you use any technique, ask yourself if you can use it within two minutes on the test. Else it is of no use to anyone.
