WHAT IS A GOOD GMAT SCORE?
What is a good GMAT score?
We are often asked: “I got a 550 score for a GMAT practice test, is that good?” First of all, practice tests are not the real thing. And secondly, it really depends on which program you're pursuing. A 550 score could be sufficient, but in some situations it might not be.
For starters, it’s a good idea to check what GMAT score you need to get into the program of your choice. Below we will explain what different score categories can mean for your situation.
We offer our courses in three attractive package deals. The courses that come with live sessions can also be bought separately. To see all details, click the button below.See our plans and pricing!
500 - 600 GMAT Score
In case you’re wondering why we start with 500, this is about the lowest minimum score an institution would require. So would it be correct to say that anything above 500 is a good GMAT score? Not particularly, but it is enough to get into some institutions. But if applications exceed availability in a certain program, you will need to rise above the competition to make the cut. This is possible by achieving a higher GMAT score. One obvious way to up your GMAT game is to put more, and also more efficient hours into your GMAT preparation.
600 - 700 GMAT Score
A 600 – 700 GMAT score is of course harder to achieve. It requires more attention to preparation. A GMAT score of 600 or higher might be required to get into higher level master programs or more prestigious MBA programs. If you need a 600+ GMAT score we advise you to follow our essential courses and bootcamps. You could also look into the possibilities we have for additional courses. If you know you struggle with math, consider adding on our basic math course. Besides taking preparation courses, it’s always necessary to study by yourself too.
700+ GMAT Score
This score requires a lot of work. Achieving a 700+ GMAT score means you score amongst the top 10% of people who take the GMAT. You can probably imagine how challenging that is. If you want to be admitted to a top institution, you need to stand out and achieve a score in the top ranks. In this case we advise to follow our preparation courses, and consider adding 1-on-1 tutoring. This allows you to tackle specific challenging subjects and receive a tailor made study program, depending on your specific needs. Get in touch to discuss your preparation plan with us.
