Should I give 4th attempt of GMAT?  [#permalink]

I am 21 years old Indian female. I completed my Bachelors in Business Administration(3 yrs) with overall 70% from Punjab University(India) in May 2018. Currently, I'm working as a Assistant Marketing Manager in my family Business.I want to do Masters in Management in Canada. But the universities ask for 4 year degree, so I will be doing my graduate certificate course for one year in winter intake 2020 in Canada so as to fulfill the requirement.The following is the GMAT record.
1st attempt( SEPTEMBER 2018) - 520 (cancelled)
2nd attempt( JANUARY 2019) - 500 V15 Q46 ( I was disappointed but was also motivated to score better next time so didn't cancel)
3rd attempt( JUNE 2019) - 630 V26 Q49 ( I am concerned about my verbal score)

So, Is there any need to give another attempt considering my lower verbal score and overall score as well.

The following are my target Bschools for MiM.

University of British Columbia
HEC Montreal
York University
Queens University
Western University

My next question what else to do during my one year graduate course in Canada to improve my chances.

I am really confused about GMAT . Your help will be really appreciated. Looking forward for your reply.

Hi harshsaini,

Thank you for your post. Although I work with applicants on a variety of business-related masters, my primary area of expertise is MBA programs. For that reason, if you are seeking nuanced advice related to Canadian MiM programs, I would encourage you to contact firms that specialize in that area, as they would be able to give you the most nuanced and helpful advice. Here are a few thoughts nevertheless:

Observationally, given how crowded and competitive the Indian applicant pool is, I would encourage you to target a GMAT score that is "over and above" each school's class average, which will likely require that you boost your Verbal score. If you are heading to Canada for a year before the MiM, you might want to delay retaking the GMAT until you've spent some time there, during which time you can devote yourself to training and improving in Verbal. (Be sure to stay sharp in Quant as well; if you can maintain the Q49 and boost your Verbal, you'll have a nice score.)

During that year, you might also consider what other areas would be helpful for you to improve or gain experience in prior to the MiM. This could include areas you're currently lacking, or where you want to build relationships, networks, or professional experience with an eye toward your post-MiM goals. Also consider new leadership experiences and community experiences, plus opportunities to meet new people and step outside your comfort zone. All of this will accrue toward the quality of your MiM applications and professional prospects thereafter. I wish you the best of luck!
