Retaking GMAT???

Post Sat Jun 11, 2016 7:30 am
Hey

I took GMAT this week and got 700 (Q50 V 34), AWA 5 and a dismal IR 2. Should I consider retaking GMAT just because I have got a poor IR score???

P.S.: I am looking for admission into PhD.

Hi ashutoshyadav1707,

First off, a 700/Q50 is an outstanding score (it's right around the 90th percentile overall), so you should 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 them here:

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

PhD Programs tend to be really detailed about the application process, since there are so few spots and all of the applicants tend to be really qualified. As such, you have to make sure that you have a strong OVERALL profile AND that you properly 'market yourself' to each Program individually.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
