680 on the GMAT .... Need help for admisions [#permalink] New post 18 Dec 2013, 19:20
Hi,

I have secured a 680 on the GMAT in the 2nd attempt.

46Q 37V.I bungled something in Quant section and I guess this has contributed to the low quants score.(was getting 700 + in preps)

However, I am not of the opinion of retake.

IR - 7 AWA - 5.

I have an experience of 6.5 yrs in US product company.

I want to know my options available for the US and Europe .

Considering R1 is over , what are the options in R2.

Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Regards,
Niketan

Hi Niketan,

680 is an average score and you stand good chance applying to the B Schools with the similar GMAT range.

However it would be very hard for me to suggest you schools now without knowing your goals and aspirations.

Share your Goals so that it would help in shortlisting the schools.

Cheers!!!

Hi Niketan

680 is a fairly good score but it all depends on the schools to which you are applying. If you want to re-take the exam, consider this:

rom one test to the next you can easily jump +/- 30 points (and even up to 80 or so) depending on where the mistakes are. So you can get the same percentage of right and wrong on two exams with the same amount of knowledge and yet have a score that differs by quite a bit. This is the same as the real GMAT. To illustrate, I can make a mistake every other question in the Quant over 5 exams (ie in every exam my percentage is 50% but have a score range from, say, a 15 to a 35, for example, which is quite insane, but it shows too that where you make mistakes can often be more important than how many. Overall, when a student wants to know where he/she stands, the best way to do so is to take the average after a few exams. This should get you to a fairly close estimation of where you are at. You can also check out our blog for more info on GMAT scoring (gmat.economist.com/blog).

I do wish to add the following. While I like to encourage students to retake exams if they have the energy and time to do so, in certain circumstances in may not be necessary especially in the context of other application criteria. So altogether a retake is good for students who are both far and close to their GMAT range but this will take dedication and further practice. If you have it in you to do so then go for it! If you have other aspects you need to take care of but are already at your range then I do not see it as all important. The other aspects of the application may carry quite a bit more weight. And finally, you can always ask the school itself whether it is worth doing. Sometimes they actually help in that regard.

Best of luck,

Elizabeth

Thanks Elizabeth for your review. I sincerely appreciate the same.
I do not want to retake the exam but considering the fact that I come from an increasingly competitive pool of Indian IT Male I need to find solid points to support my candidature.

Currently major schools have their R1 done, so am not sure if it would make sense to apply in R2.
Ur pointers to the same would be highly helpful.

Regards,
Niketan
