Retake GMAT score 700(Q 47 V39 AWA 4) [#permalink] New post 25 Feb 2010, 04:41
HI..I wrote my GMAT for the second time and scored a 700(Q-47/V-39).My only concern is that I got a very low AWA score ie.e only 4(18 percentile).I am worried that this might hamper my chances of getting an interview call.

I am having 5 yrs of IT work ex and plan to apply in MBA institutes in India.
Am not sure if the adcom is simply going to filter out my application on the low AWA score basis.

Can anybody give me an idea if I stand a chance in India?

Hi ggmatt,

If your GMAT score had been lower, with a lower percentile in the Verbal section, I might have been more concerned. Although a lower AWA score does slightly weaken the GMAT score, I don't believe it's enough to warrant taking the test again. Basically, a lower AWA score is going to raise questions about your communication abilities.

Hence, in your case, it does become more imperative to prove to the AdCom that you have strong communications skills. Ways of doing that include superior essays, relevant achievements in your resume and examples from your recommenders in their letters.

We train our clients on business communication skills along with helping produce strong essays. Verbal and written communication skills are going to be important at every step. By training our clients to write and speak well as we work with them on the application, we help them prepare not just for the MBA program but later career as well.

Drop us a line at mbaconsult@mymbaadmit.com to learn more. Learn about Volume Discounts and Applications packages that always include constructive feedback on your communication abilities in our one-on-one sessions.
