GMAT 640 - Good enough? [#permalink]

New post 19 Oct 2017, 00:01
Hi,

Got a score of 640 on my first attempt (8th Oct) - Q42, V35.

While I was aiming for 700+, I realised that the one month I put in before test day was surely not enough to get me there.

However, it becomes quite difficult to study along side a full time job. While I am sure I can achieve a better score in my next attempt (if it comes to that), I was wondering if this score is good enough for any of the premier institutes offering a full time one-year MBA degree for executives in India.

Any help / suggestions on B-schools that are likely to accept this score will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Kaustav

it depends on your profile. Please tell me us a bit more about your profile. And generally speaking unless you have a stellar profile, it would be better if you have another go at GMAT.

Quick answer is a 640 feels low for a the top schools in India as the averages are closer to 700+ so you should probably retake the GMAT given this. Ultimately you should look at each of your target schools and see how close you are to their avg GMAT score to gauge if you are a fit on paper.
