Hi,
I am relatively new to this forum. I am planning to give GMAT in the next 2-3 months.
I have around 5 years of experience in IT and i am associated with two start ups in the last 3 years. One hit and one miss.

Now i am really looking forward to boost my career on the base of knowledge as it can give me better exposure and flexibility. Branded education is really needed to scale up any kind of entrepreneurial activities.

Now i am a bit worried about my GPA. As i have graduated (3 yrs ) with a very poor GPA. But then i have done masters (3 yrs) with relatively better GPA (3.3). Now my point is as both the degrees are 3 yrs course, how my overall GPA will be calculated. Can i show my masters which itself is a 3 yrs program as final degree and can submit it's GPA only or average GPA will count.

Please give me some idea. How i am going to present my case, average GPA will make my application a void one.

You will present both educational experiences on your application with separate GPAs. They will not be averaged, but most schools will likely focus on your most recent endeavor, especially if the masters program is relevant.

Yes. My masters is more relevant i guess. I have done masters in computer application and working as a tech lead in an Indian IT company. My graduation was on statistics.
