Hi,

I would like to know how does the score acceptance at INSEAD work. Do they consider average of all GMAT scores taken or the highest score?

What if the previous scores were cancelled? Then only the current score given to them will be counted, right? Or am I wrong?

Cancelled scores will appear with a C so obviously they will know that you retook it and for certain reasons (most likely a bad score). I left it as is (low 600s), took again and got over 700. A bad score is not fatal, but try to avoid it. The application needs to be well balanced, a GMAT is a variable but not the only one (though its the more stressful and complicated to get in my experience).
INSEAD, and any school, publish the average GMAT. They don't have a minimum but a normal distribution exits around that average. Schools will always look to increase it of course. Try hitting the average or above. The minimum that actually exists is for TOEFL or IELTS but this is easier to take than the GMAT (if you have native english or studied in english you can waive this sometimes). My advice is to leave it after the GMAT.
Also take into account your GMAT will compete with scores of people comparable to you since most MBAs look for diversity and know that not every candidate comes from a English speaking country for instance.

Hi dishadesai,

If your previous scores were canceled, only your current score will be valid.

All the best!

Hi dishadesai,

as previously said, if you canceled your previous scores, only the current score submitted to INSEAD will be taken into account.

However, I just wanted to add that in case you submitted several valid scores to INSEAD, the full picture will be taken into account. This means that if you achieved the recommended 70-75% in one section but a lower percentile in the other section in one attempt, and the other way around in another attempt, INSEAD might consider the highest scores of each individual section in both attempts.

So for example, you attempted GMAT twice and obtained:

Attempt 1: Q: 75% / V: 66%

Attempt 2: Q: 69% / V: 83%

If you submitted both attempts to INSEAD, the AdCom is likely to consider your Q-75% and your V-83% scores. Just make sure, there is no significant drop in the section you obtained your lowest score.

I hope this helps.

Thank you
Alex
