My GMAT score is 700 Q48 V37 IR-4 AWA-5

I am applying to the MIM programs at HEC, LBS, ESSEC, and WHU. I have about 1.5 years of work experience. I don't know whether I should rewrite the GMAT as soon as I can (i.e., after a month). The average scores for MIM at these universities are in the 700-720 range. I know that if I rewrite the exam I can perform slightly better at least, since I developed a bad headache halfway through the exam which ruined my verbal and IR sections, but I don't know whether it will be worth the while, as i will definitely miss the first round application deadline if I don't apply soon.

Hi animanthakur,

You ask a great question, but since it’s an admissions-based question, you should reach out to one of the many consultants here on GMAT Club. If you determine that a retake is necessary, feel free to reach back out here, and I can provide some further advice.

Good luck!

Hi animanthakur,

First off, a 700/Q48 is a fantastic score (it's just a bit shy of the 90th percentile overall), so you can comfortably apply to any Schools that interest you. As such, a retest is probably not 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:

http://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admission ... tants-124/

Based on your Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores, you don't have any big "weak" categories, so if you do choose to retest, then we'll have to take a more detailed look at how you "see" (and respond to) GMAT questions in both of those sections. There's certainly no harm in retesting, but based on the strength of your OVERALL application, it might not be the best use of your time.

Hello animanthakur :wave:


At HEC MIM program median GMAT is 710.

At LBS to my surprise average GMAT is 681, great news I would say. ;)

I would choose LBS before HEC any time, but those are just my preferences :cool:

I don't see ESSEC stating GMAT requirements, which is a good thing.

WHU would like to see GMAT score of at least 600 :)


Bottom line there is no 700-720 range for averages of these schools.

IR section is not that important anyway to admission committee compared to verbal and quant sections, so you are set.

Spending time on other aspects of your application and applying in first round, should be your priority. :idea:

Your GMAT score is just fine for all schools on list and any in Europe for that matter.


Good Luck with application and keep us posted ! :fingers_crossed: :cool:

I would only retake it if it won't put your ability to hit the application deadlines at risk. Another option would be to go ahead & apply without retaking it & then take it again as soon as you submit your apps - you can always send an updated score to the schools. And it does sound like you have a good shot at increasing your score given what you described re test day. Good luck to you!
