Profile Evaluation-Gmat strategy

Hi, I am a commerce (Bcom H) graduate from Delhi university. Overall graduation score: 74% (Ist division). Did a 2 month long internship where I’m currently working.
Been working for 4 years at aus investment bank. The bank though has a back end office here in India. Currently in financial control among charred accountants.
Apart from that, I’ve played state level tennis, won many golf and squash tournaments at army level and regularly practice Krav Maga, Ji jitsu and mma.

Aiming to get into INSEAD Singapore, isb hybd, NuS, LBS. Can you please help me figure out as far as the profile is concerned and the possible score needed?

Currently enrolled in egmat for live quants and verbal. A little slow as far as the preparation is concerned due to work pressure. Accuracy is of 65%-70%.
Looking to score 750+.
Getting concerned regarding timelines since I’m taking a lot of time to cover topics. Any suggestions/ tips to reach the desired score would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Dhruv

Hi Dhruv,

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay - but you shouldn't wait too long to take that initial CAT. That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 4 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

You're ultimately asking a number of Admissions questions, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

Hi Dhruv,

You have plenty of time to study and improve before you plan to apply to Business School - which is good. That having been said, the 750+ score is the 98th percentile - meaning that 98% of Test Takers never score that high (regardless of how long they study or the number of times that they take the GMAT). Thankfully, NO Business School actually requires a score that high - so it's important to realize that the score that you "want" and the score that you "need" are not the same thing.

I'm not an Admissions Expert, so I can't offer much perspective on your profile. For that, you need to consult with an Admissions Expert (you can follow the link in my prior post to the Admissions Forum on this site).

1) How have you scored on each of your practice CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?
