Hi,

Before I ask my question, i like to give some background information about myself that can help you to provide me the better option.

Male, 5 years in IT industry, Indian, Goal Score: ~720, Preparing from last 1 year but couldn't get the expected score.

As I am preparing from last one year and couldn't get the expected score of around 720, I am thinking if I can quit my job and start fresh for my GMAT exam.

Will it be a good idea to quit - I am asking in respect to my application which I will be submitting while applying to different colleges. Does this move ( quiting job in between) will any way impact my application? Please advice.

This is a horrible idea, please do not do this. It will make you look unemployable and the explanation will beg the question, why couldnt you do this when others could?
change jobs before doing this - you could lose job/income and maybe not even get a better score.

Find ways to reduce work hours, create special six-week focus on this. Get up one hour earlier every workday. give the best of you instead of the rest of you at the end of the day. Really, do this in the morning, it works wonders. 18 years of verbal tutoring speaking here.

Hire tutors and join online study groups. Take GRE and see if it comes out better.

Get creative about this; do something different to get a different result but quitting your job will have a real negative impact on your CV acceptance chances.

I really have to agree with Farrell here, there are no pros to doing this, only cons. Such a decision would surely raise a lot of questions from the adcoms and you might struggle answering them. So I would really, really advise against this as well.
