Low GPA with Career gap- Need Advice [#permalink]

Hi all,
Thank you for visiting this post. I need some help with the valuation of my profile, chances of targeting MBA schools and required GMAT score
I just started GMAT preparation on positive note but recently I have gone through couple of threads regarding low GPA and career gap which caused me bit worry and not able to concentrate on GMAT preparation.

My profile:
I am from India and working as SAP IT consultant having 6 years of experience
Age:33
10th - 53%
Polytechnic Mechanical Engineering -80%
Engineering - JNTU, Hyderabad(Mechanical Engineering) - 75%
MS-UK (Applied computing ) - C grade
GMAT Target to write after 6 months

My Problem:
I have an abysmally low score in 10th and low GPA in Masters. after my degree in engineering I did Masters in IT, I felt difficult in subject change from Mechanical to computers which reflects poor GPA in masters. Apart from low GPA I have 2 years career gap.

Activitis:
I have participated around 4-5 community activities(Still participating) and have got 2 awards in professional career

Target Schools: Top10 Indian B schools (IIM's /ISB's./Others)

The bottom line: what are the chances of getting admission in MBA, how much GMAT score required for my profile and how else can I improve my profile?
which schools suits better for my profile?


I would like to hear your opinion on how I can proceed on this issue. Thanks in advance.

Karun,

10th grade is unlikely to matter but Master's definitely would. Read here on how to tackle it potentially.

On the gap front, it really depends on the reason behind it. Voluntary breaks usually don't bode well - read here.

Hope this helps some.
