Hi Experts,

GMAT score : 680
Q49, V34 and IR 8

I was getting 710 in mocks. Unfortunately, my score is much less than what I expected.
I was targeting for HEC Paris and INSEAD and other top 20 schools. I don't know what to do know.

Hi Pranati,

I'm no expert, but I'm sure the experts would want to know certain other facts about profile before providing you with feedback and suggestions.
Few of the below requirements may seem trivial, but almost all school take these factors in to consideration while evaluating candidates.

1. Age
2. Nationality
3. Work Experience
4. Role
5. Extra Curriculum
6. Post MBA Goals

Lastly, a GMAT score of 680 is very good, so congratulations to you. I think you got some easy questions incorrect or hurried though the last few questions, and thereby your score dipped below 700. Nevertheless, congratulation on getting a 680

I ask this because you have two European schools mentioned in first post.

For what schools you should apply to, a lot depends on your goals, your location preferences etc.
Also since yo have not given any specific post MBA industry and considering your prior experience in technology,I would start by looking at the top MBA schools which are strong in Tech:
Haas, Anderson, Austin, Georgia Tech, Tepper,Smith Maryland and University of Scranton

If you have any more questions, let me know.

Hi Pranati05,

You've named some highly-competitive Schools, so 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:

Hi Pranati05,

Sorry to hear about your experience. From your scores, it seems you still have some room for improvement in Verbal. For verbal especially, I would highly encourage you to consider e-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live course. They are both amazing courses especially designed for non-natives. They offer almost 25% of their courses for free so you can try out their free trial to decide which one you want to go for. Plus the e-gmat Scholaranium which is included in both the courses is one of the best verbal practice tools in the market. You can easily track your progress in that you can identify your strengths and analyze and improve on your weak areas.

Further taking multiple mocks might help. Apart from the GMATPREP, Manhattan GMAT tests and Veritas Prep Tests in my experience have good verbal and Quant section and will certainly help you point out and improve your weak areas.

Further another advantage of taking many mocks is to build up your stamina. Apart from the GMATPREP tests, taking practise tests of any major GMATPREP company ought to do that.

Hope this helps. All the best.

Hi Pranati05,

Since you are asking an admissions-based question, I agree that you should reach out to one of the many admissions consultants on GMAT Club to get an answer from a qualified person.
