I have just taken the test....got a 730, which I think is a great score, v44 (percentil 98) q47 (percentil 61)...around the average for any B school

i'm Brazilian and English is not my first language... so i'm very happy about my verbal score...I also know that Brazilians are kind of underrepresented, which makes my grade a bit stronger

but it seems too unbalanced...verbal percentil is amazing, but quant percentil seems to be too low.

do you guys think this could harm my application? is this quant score particularly low? or am I worrying too much?

i won't be able to give another shot until august because i'm taking cfa lvl III, which is an important part of my application, and then vacation...i'm really hoping to apply in the first round and not sure if I have the mental strength to try again gmat...I'm a bit exhausted for now

pls give advice

tks!

Your quant score won't really stand out, but it won't hurt you either. Another thing to consider here is that Q47 is actually much better than a 61% for test takers from Brazil. Read this article to understand what I mean (Brazil was one of the examples the GMAC used to explain what the article says about quant scores).

What matters is that your total score is very good (and your verbal score is amazing!), so you really don't need to take the exam again. However, if I were you, I'd reach out to a few admissions consultants and to my target schools directly and check what they think about the Q47.

Hi acbobadilha,

Congratulations for your wonderful score! You have the score to get into any business school.

With your overall score , Q47 is good enough. Your time would be better served working on the other areas of your application, and applying in R1.

Also, read this post:

Hope this helps!

Hi acbobadilha,

First off, a 730/Q47 is an outstanding score, so you can comfortably apply to any Schools that interest you. As such, a retest is probably not necessary. Depending on the Schools that you plan to apply to, you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:
