Hi Experts,

I have appeared for Gmat thrice (640,660,690). I have 2.5 years of experience in IT consulting. I wanted to apply for R2 and R3 for a few colleges (NUS, NTU, ISB). I have following questions
1) Is my experience less and can it hinder my application?
2) Is my score good enough (690 Q-50, V32)?
3) Should I appear for Gmat again and try to get 700+ and apply next year or apply this year in R2s/R3s?
4) I have already written Gmat three times, does taking it the 4th time impact my profile?

These many attempts have really broken my confidence, M not sure what to do now. Please advise!

Thanks

With only 2.5 years of experience, you do have time on your side.

However, if you were not scoring significantly more in your third time mock tests, I would not worry about a re-attempt (though it would not impact your profile).

Hi daspri2809,

First off, a 690/Q50 is a strong score (it's above the 80th percentile overall), so it could be enough to get you into your first-choice School. As such, a retest might not be necessary. You're ultimately asking Admissions questions though, 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:

Hi daspri2809,

Welcome to GMATCLUB! Congrats on a 690. It is definitely not a bad score. However given that you come from an over-represented applicant pool, It may benefit you to take GMAT once more to see if you can probably get a 700+ score and apply in round 2 later. Business schools only look at your highest scores, so the number of attempts would certainly not matter.

Hope this helps. All the best!

Hi daspri2809,

Since you are asking an admissions question, I agree that you should reach out to one of the many admissions consultants here on GMAT Club.

If you do decide to retake the GMAT, reach back out, and I can provide some further advice.

Good luck!
