I am member of the Ranbaxy global SAP team.I have worked on diverse projects such as Accounts payable for shared services,manufacturing Automation,E payment solutions,Pharma covigilance ,Social media plan for the company etc.

Given that your GPA is is on the lower side (3.02 according to your profile), I'd say you should retake and improve the verbal.

Saurabh,
Not sure how your GPA of 7.55 /10 scales to a 4.0 scale but with a score of 640 and a background likes yours competing against other Indian male applicants who are strong at math but generally weaker at verbal - it's going to be a lot of competition. You should retake your GMAT exam in an effort to more stand out.

You have 3 years of work experience - this is fine, maybe even a bit on the low side but by the time you apply it will be 4-5. But it seems your background is not unique enough - this has mostly to do with the rest of the applicant pool - that's why the GMAT matters more in your case. Business schools will look at the balance of your quant/verbal score and not just your score of 640. In your case, there is a high imbalance. You can significantly improve your overall score by a slight improvement in your verbal raw score. At your breakdown, your total score is much much more sensitive to one more question correct on verbal than on one more question correct on quant.

Hi Saurabh,

I recommend that you take the GMAT again. The reason is that on your business school application, your highest score is self-reported. There is no downside to taking the test again, particularly if you believe you can greatly improve your score.

If you'd like, we provide free GMAT advice here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
