Just took the GMAT today and got 760 on it (Q51, V41, IR 4). As I'm pleased with the overall score, I'm a little disappointed with only getting a 4 on IR....My question is should I retake the GMAT to boost my IR score? Will top business schools look at IR? Is it an important academic indicator? I've heard stories that you should get at least a 6 on IR....is that true...?

Any input is appreciated!!!!

Hi dannibearzz

Expect for INSEAD, no other school has a rule which says you need more than a IR 6.
So, unless you are applying to INSEAD, I would not bother too much about the IR score
and work on the applications.

If you are planning to apply in the current cycle, you are already late. If I were you, I
would focus on my applications. Alternatively, you could check with the schools you are
planning to apply if the IR score will be a problem.

Congrats on getting the GMAT out of the way and all the best for the application phase!

Hope that helps you!

Thanks so much for your reply! I'm only considering schools in the US. And I'm applying for round 1 of 2018 and plan on matriculating fall 2019 so I still have time for applications and maybe another attempt at GMAT if needed...Do you think top 10 business schools will care much about IR?

760 is an exceptionally high score (good job!!!) and thus I don't think your IR should be a problem.

Great score, congrats!

Most of the schools have said that they do not consider the IR scores for the admission, so I wouldn't bother.

Congrats for the stellar score! With 760, I think your IR should not be a problem.
