GMAT results - Understanding IR score [#permalink] New post 14 Oct 2013, 06:34
Hi everyone,

I have just taken the GMAT today and clearly I underestimated how difficult it really is. Anyway, here's how my score breaks down:

IR - 7
V - 23
Q - 36

Score - 500

Verbal was definitely more challenging than expected. Although what concerns me afterward is to understand my score and what it tells about me. How would you interpret my results? I am planning to retake the exam in 3 months from now, but would it make any difference?

Above all, what I really want to know is how do most business schools factor IR (if anyone know).

Best,

Olivier

It definitely would make a difference and makes a lot of sense for you to retake... Ideally you want 47+ on the quants and 38+ on verbal... Honestly, with a 500, you are not gonna make a strong case at any good school (maybe not even top 100).. Immerse yourself for the next three months and get your score above the 700 mark.. All the best.. :)

My ego tells me that I can't keep such a low score :wink: So, yes, I will get back to work and score a higher score.

Do you have any idea how IR is factored by the best business schools? I read that consulting companies are now taking a closer look to IR, or that IR can even make a difference when it comes to scholarship. Would you agree with that? (does IR matter after all?)

I got an 8, so I'm definitely agreeing with that.. :P To be honest, the usual answer to this question is that the IR doesn't have enough data yet to be considered by bschools to be a factor.. I mean, the section was introduced only in June 2012. So anyone who took the IR has at best only started their first semester.. Maybe, it will gain more significance 3-4 years down the road...
