Hi All,

I am writing here because I have 1 query and I am looking for advice. I took the GMAT twice scoring 540 and 580 in my 2 attempts. I did not give myself enough time to prepare and also did not use my entire gmat material because of my work schedule.

I have 9 years of experience in Market research industry, and I wanted to change my profile into a marketing/consulting role, and wanted to take a Global leadership position in my career which I believe will take time if I continue the current path. For this reason, I targeted INSEAD and IMD Switzerland. I also went for a coffee chat with INSEAD co-ordinator and I got a feeling that they would not welcome me in the college because of my experience of 9 years.

I am currently confused whether I should take GMAT again or not, and I need your advice on this.

Please do help me out with some kind advice from your end.

Thanks and regards
Ashish

In my opinion your number of years of experience shouldn’t be a problem, especially at INSEAD where 30+ year olds are very common. Your GMAT score, on the other hand, needs a big leap for INSEAD. Need 720+.

I had a 700 44Q, 41V and just bounced to 710 47Q, 40V. I'm not especially content with my test execution on the retake yet I'm applying R1 so I'm simply going to suck it up and keep it moving.

Most MBA aspirants have this classic dilemma: Whether to retake GMAT to improve the score or focus on school application. For me, this decision depends on two factors-

(i) Your previous scores in GMAC official mock tests. If you have scored more in mock tests consistently, you should definitely consider retaking the test.

(ii) Average GMAT score of the school that you are applying to and the applicant pool that you belong to. As an Indian male candidate, I always wanted to have a GMAT score of +20 above the average GMAT score that my target school had. This strictly was based on the limited sample set of current students and alums of most of the schools from my particular geography.
