High GMAT but Moderate Quant Score for INSEAD [#permalink]

Hi guys,

I took the GMAT around 2 years back and got a 660 (Q49, V32, IR6)

I just took the GMAT yesterday and scored 730 (Q48, V41, IR6). As you can notice, I considerably improved my Verbal score but somehow flunked on Quant. That came as a surprise to me as I have been really good in CATs at home, scoring up to Q51.

Coming to the point, I am planning to apply to INSEAD for 18J in-take. Do you think my 730 GMAT score will suffice? As I am worried my Q48 is not up to the mark.
Would they look at my previous Q49 as well?

Also, I heard about the website MBAmath.com, where you can take a few courses to show your math proficiency. I would love to do that just to build my point. Would it help? Or any other thing?

Looking forward to your comments/feedback. Thanks.

Hi Salman,

I wouldn't worry too much about a Q48, it's still a good score and 730 is above average! Coming from a maths background should also place you on the safe side of being able to handle the curriculum. Having said that, it depends on how competitive is your country pool (if you're Indian, a higher score would be better). In any case, I would rather concentrate on building a strong application showing your international motivation, your leadership achievements as well as your extracurricular interests.

good luck :)

You are significantly Above Insead's average GMAT and Q 48 is pretty decent, I wouldn't worry, just focus on writing killer essays.

Hi
Congratulations on your score.
Regarding your query, i specifically remember one of the admission panel members say in a video on youtube that they usually look for a 70 percentile+ score in both math and verbal. A Q48 should be 75-79 percentile.
My suggestion would be review and gather as much info as possible on the net, get in touch with a alumini if possible and write a application which describes you the best.
Goodluck.

Unfortunately, a Q48 is only 69 percentile as of today.
