I appeared for my GMAT Exam on 11/1/18 and scored a 690 (Q46, V38). Although, I'm quite happy with this result but since I'm applying for a Masters in Quantitative Finance or Masters in Finance in Germany and a couple of other European Universities (NHH, UVA, Rotterdam School of Management, Goethe University Frankfurt), I'm worried regarding my quants score which is a 60th percentile (Verbal percentile is 85th and IR is a 93rd percentile if these universities would consider that too).

I need some suggestions as to whether I should go for a re-take? I have a 3.3 CGPA in my Bachelors of Accounting & Finance with a 8 months experience in Equity Research.

I am just looking to secure an admission as a first option and not considering about scholarships as of now.

Many schools, esp those you mention prefer your GRE scores for these courses.
If you can get a GRE score of 310+ (and you have WE achievements and Volunteer experience), we can help you achieve your dreams.
