Hello!

I have sat the GMAT twice and received two sets of scores and wanted some expert advice on which to submit? Looking to apply to top-tier MBA programs. Have a technical engineering degree, but work in a non-technical field.

Would highly appreciate your perspective on this:

TEST 1:

IR: 6 - 70 percentile
Q: 45 - 57 percentile
V: 40 - 91 percentile
Total: 700

Test 2:

IR: 7 - 82 percentile
Q: 47 - 63 percentile
V:38 - 85 percentile
Total: 690

Thank you for your help!

Hi Jay1234

I would recommend you to show the 700 score(because it sounds
better than a 690)

However, if you can re-take the exam, work on your Quant score,
which I think is easy to improve. If you manage a Q49-50 and
get a V40, you could be looking at a overall score of 730 and that
would be a much better score for most business schools.

Congrats on getting the scores. All the best for the applications!

Hope this help you.

You can submit both. And when you send your official score. They will have access to both. So I would suggest listing both since they consider only high score.

Both are quite similar. Q47 sounds better but percentile-wise there is not a lot of difference. Just keep both and let the school take a call on which score they prefer - higher or later.
