Hi Experts,

I want to know what should be my target score to get into top 20 B schools.
I am a Computer Engineer from India and will have around 4 years experience by the time I will join the school.

Thanks
NG

nkhl.goyal, there isn't really a magic GMAT number.

That being said, as a general thumb rule, one can easily add 20-30 points to a given school's average to get a sense of the 'Indian' GMAT average. Use that as a general guide and all the best!

Cheers,

For an Indian applicant, its beneficial to have a score above 720 ( no upper limit). However, adcoms DO look at profiles holistically. So while you are working upon the GMAT score, also evaluate other aspects of your profile and improve on areas that need some work.
We can help you identify these.

Hello nkhl.goyal,

Business schools evaluate your profile holistically and your chances depend on a range of other factors such as academic background, career progression, and extra-curricular activities.

While no GMAT score will guarantee an admit, considering you belong to an over-represented pool of Indian applicants from an IT background, we suggest that you look upwards of 730; the higher the score, the better it will be.

Should you feel the need for a free profile evaluation, please reach out to us with more details.

Thanks.

Hey nkhl,

Generally for your demographic (all things being equal) a minimum score of 720 will be necessary to be competitive. Most scores for engineers from India will be in the 730-770 range, however.

That being said, each candidate brings different things to the table so if you have an exceptionally strong story or compelling extracurriculars, a lower GMAT score can be mitigated. Remember, schools look at candidates holistically and not simply at one data point!

Regards,
