Hi all,
I took the GMAT a couple of days ago and scored a 670( Q-49, V-32, IR-5). Please go through my profile and help me decide on whether to retake the GMAT.
I am aiming for Master in Management courses of Rotterdam School of Management and London Business School.

Nationality - Indian
Graduation from NIT with CGPA of 7.6/10
2 years of work experience in the field of marketing.
I was actively involved in a couple of mentionable extra curricular activities​ during my college.
Scored more than 92% in 10th and 12th standards.

Is it necessary that I retake my GMAT? Or can I proceed and apply to the above mentioned universities by drafting a strong application?

Yes it is absolutely necessary that you retake the GMAT. You are coming from a HUGE and immensely competitive pool of applicants. and your GMAT is much lower than the class average.

Good luck!!

Thanks for sharing your profile. You will need to retake your GMAT. These are top programs and your avg score falls a bit below the expectations. Also, you come from a very competitive applicant pool where applicants routinely achieve high scores on the GMAT. To give yourself the best odds I would retake to boost your score

Hi Phani14Madhav,

Yes, you must definitely retake the GMAT. While a stellar application is important, the GMAT score is very crucial too and stands out by itself.

All the best! :)
