I have a work exp of 4+ yrs in a telecom giant as developer. I secure 80% in 10th(CBSE), 54% in 12th and 50% in ENGG(ECE).
What are my chances of getting into a good brand business school?
How can I make up for my low percentage?

Hi swasq12,

You do have a low score in your engineering and you will have to score as high as possible to compensate for it.
In addition, I would recommend you to write the reason about the low score in the optional essay so that you do not leave anything for the admission director to assume.

For GMAT preparation, you need to build the concepts/fundamentals before you jump in solving the problems. You can do so by choosing one of the following ways:
1. In person classes/private tutoring
2. Online classes
3. Self paced online preparatory course
4. Book heavy approach

Whatever you choose, make sure that you choose one. Because GMAT tests you on some concepts and fundamentals that you can learn from a course. Most of the preparatory companies including ours offer a free trial of our course. You can take the trial and see if the course suits your needs.

In addition to the preparatory material, buy the Official Guides(both the Official Guide and the Verbal Review), Question Pack 1 and the 4 official mock CATs. They should be an indispensable part of your preparation.

Hi swasq12,

A strong GMAT score can help to 'make up for' a low GPA, but you have to remember that you need a strong OVERALL profile and you need to properly 'market yourself' to get into a highly competitive Program. You're ultimately asking Admissions questions, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile and plans. There's a Forum full of them here:
