Hi Prashanthr

I faced exactly the same situation as yours and even asked this question on the forum here as well as to INSEAD Admission Team. Here I copy respose from INSEAD:

Thanks to other strong elements within an application, a file can exceptionally be completed and evaluated with an English test score slightly below our official recommended score (7.5). You will be assigned to an Admissions Officer once you have submitted your application and she will contact you within a week to confirm your application materials and if we can complete your file with your score of 7.0. Please note however that the Admissions Committee reserves the right to request further assurance of the ability to communicate in English, if necessary.

Since 2-year period is running out and your score is below recommended minimum I advise you to retake the exam

Hi Prashanthr,

Thank you for your post. The IELTS score is valid for 2 years. Since you are planning to take the GMAT in September, I assume you will not be applying in the early rounds. You should either retake the IELTS or request a waiver from INSEAD's admission team. Given that your score is below their recommended score, you might want to consider retaking the exam.

Good luck!

Susan

Hi Prashanthr,

Just renamed the title of this thread. Earlier title - "INSEAD ADMISSIONS" - was too generic to understand what is being discussed in the thread. Apt titles also help the forum search feature to work effectively and provide correct search results to viewers.
