This is to take your advice on my GMAT preparation and my plan to pursue my MBA. I have been regularly practicing official questions and concepts from Egmat and have attempted 5 mock tests. The highest score I have managed to achieve is 570 and my average has remained at 550 over this period. My target is the one year MBA from Copenhagen Business School, or the full time MBA program from NUS or Chinese University of Hong Kong. I have shortlisted these schools considering their focus on management programs and also some feedback of fellow students.

Basically, I am a dual degree holder (B.Tech + MBA) from NMIMS University, Mumbai, India and have 4 years of work experience in Upstream and Downstream supply chain management in Retail companies in India. The sole goal of my MBA is to garner a global perspective on International business in marketing field.

I could really do with some advice if my score is sufficient to get admission into one of these 3 schools and if not, how can I improve my study plan. I appear for my GMAT (first attempt) on 10-April, 2018.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your profile details. While I would love to learn more about your background to be able to give you very specific advice (feel free to email your resume or submit and inquiry www.personalmbacoach.com, I can say that you should target a higher GMAT score to be competitive at these schools.

Have you had private tutoring before? We have tutors with 4.0 GPAs from MIT / Harvard and 790 or 800 GMAT and can guide you through the process.

Good luck and reach out if you want to explore this further.

Best,
Scott

Hi Aman,

You should definitely aim for a higher GMAT score for all 3 MBA programs. A 550-570 would not be competitive at any of these. A score >650 will help at Copenhagen Business school and CUHK, whereas you will be more comfortable applying to NUS with a 700+ score.

Thanks for sharing your profile. A 570 is a fairly low GMAT and will make it much harder than necessary for you to probably gain admission. I know you have already taken a few shots at the GMAT but you may want to consider some other GMAT prep options - tutoring, new books, online prep. This will have an outsized impact on your chances

I can only agree with the other posters and say that unless there is something very unique about you and your profile that you left out here for some reason, I doubt that the score you mentioned will be enough for admission for these schools. That said, there are a lot of great options for prepping for the GMAT. The company I work for does not offer any services like that but there are plenty of others here on the board that do, so I would start by looking into what they can offer if I were you.

Good luck!
