I looked everywhere but I could not find a response.

I know INSEAD requires you to submit everything before the deadline but I wanted to know whether you can replace your GMAT scores, as other schools allow you to do so.
I have taken my GMAT but it is not competitive because my profile is not balanced and I need a high GMAT (I'm currently in the 600's). I am capable of scoring higher, I just have issues with time management and find myself guessing the last few questions.

INSEAD is quite strict so I would like to confirm before submitting my application. Otherwise, I will have to defer - I will give the Admissions a call but just thought I would pose the question.

To anyone wondering, INSEAD does allow you to retake the GMAT to replace existing scores however it is deemed risky because if they have enough excellent candidates who have reached their criteria, then your application will be deemed incomplete and there will be no space left.

I have a different take on this. if you are aiming for a 30-50 point increase on GMAT, then its realistically hard to say whether you will achieve it in the next attempt. It may take more than one attempt. INSEAD not being very reapplicant friendly, I don't think you should take the chance of submitting and then getting a similar score as your current one.

INSEAD has deadlines pretty much round the year. I believe its safer to apply when you have a score you are ok submitting.
