Hey guys,

Just received an email from my AO saying that my submission was incomplete because the IELTS was missing (which i did not take yet). And that no interview decision can be released without the english exam official score reports!!!!!
To be honest that caught me by surprise. I though we had more time. Anyone facing the same issue?

Yes, they do. What's yours? From your name, it looks like you're not from an over represented pool.


I am with @doesgrwymatter here, what they say is that there is no specific quota, but they want a diverse class, so they won't have too many people from a certain nationality.

tujnguyen I do believe that being a Singaporean of Vietnamese origin, you can be fitted in any of those, you may have more options than others.

AAspirations, you can have multiple passports (not if you are Indian, Chinese or Singaporean) so it cannot be 100% related to your passports.

Pablo


If you're a citizen of multiple countries and hold multiple passports, then I don't know how they will see that. But having a percentage for each nationality is very similar to having a maximum quota.


Not really. The term "Quota" would mean that a certain set of seats are reserved for a particular nationality. That is probably not what INSEAD promotes. When they state/express desire for an upper ceiling for a particular nationality (which BTW is probably not set in stone), all they are trying to achieve is a diverse class.
And that does not necessarily translate to a percentage for each nationality. So in essence, there is no quota, but a conscious effort to have as diverse a class as possible.

Is your university degree taught exclusively in English? Any means for you to take any of the INSEAD-recognized language tests? (https://www.insead.edu/sites/default/fi ... f_2020.pdf)

So it's said, the volume of applications has indeed increased.


Yep I got the same email from SH. Did everyone else get it too?

Hi everyone,

Anyone got in touch with INSEAD regarding GMAT/ GRE scores.
I am aware deadline is 20th July but any country specific or other detail that can be added to this information?
Any idea how absence of scores will impact the evaluation before 24 June? I haven't submitted my scores yet. I gave GMAT online but my score is too less to report so I am aiming retest by end of june. How many of you have submitted the scores? If not then when are you planning?

It seems that they don't have the same flexibility when it comes to english test (IELTS/TOEFL). Anyway, I emailed my AO yesterday asking for clarifications, and if it would be possible to give us more time to take the test. I'm not very optimistic about it, but let's see if they will accept.

I believe it is understandable, if they are not sure you can attend a demanding program in English how they could offer you a place? They were really strict with the requirements, I studied 3/4 of my degree in English but as it was not the only language for teaching they did not accept it (I believe in the current situation if I could not be taking a test they may provide some extra time to provide it).

You can do the TOEFL from home, so there is no excuse, if you have the level it is not so hard to prepare for it, just the speaking section needs some practice to be familiar with it, and you have free official prep materials (even courses), so despite the cost, I do not see why should not be taken.

Remember that they are quite strict with the grade, it would make no sense to spend time evaluating a profile or to make an offer to someone without the test when someone else may have applied with a 104 and has been rejected.

I heard from an alum that INSEAD has restriction of 10% per country

Can someone help me understand the whole language requirements? If I grew up in a bilingual country (French and English) and I put down English as my mother tongue, French as Fluent, do I need to take any language test? I was not educated in English.

It's mentioned in INSEAD's language policy online (https://www.insead.edu/sites/default/fi ... f_2020.pdf).

If you put English as your native language/mother tongue, then you need to provide certification of your second language (which in your case is French). The different means of certification can be found on page 6 of INSEAD's language policy.

Were you expecting an interview invite email? It would be too early for that.
