Re: GMAT score or GRE score to pursue MBA abroad

As you want to do MBA from abroad, you required to give GMAT.

The GMAT (Graduate Management Aptitude Test) is required to apply in a business school.

Re: GMAT score or GRE score to pursue MBA abroad

Hello, here I am providing you the details of the both the exams as under:

Both GMAT and GRE score are valid for the next 5 years.
If you are definitely going for an MBA, than taking the GMAT would be an advantage. This would increase the options of business schools they can apply to. There may be candidates who in spite of repeated attempts at the GMAT may not be able to raise their scores or whose performance in the GMAT practice tests may not be up to the mark, so they may have got discouraged from taking their GMAT

The cost of taking a GRE is $195 whereas that of the GMAT is $250 – a difference of $65 between the two. Both the GMAT and GRE is computer-based test and can be taken throughout the year. But at the places where computer based exams are not possible the GRE is taken on the paper.

The exam formats of the GMAT and GRE are different. Since MBA courses started accepting two unrelated scores, the powers that be came up with a mapping table to convert GRE scores to GMAT scores.

Business School % Average GRE Average GMAT
Duke (Fuqua) 4% 590 690
Yale 18% 690 717
Michigan (Ross) 5% 630 703
Texas (McCombs) 13% 660 692
Carnegie Mellon (Tepper) 4% 600 693
UNC (Kenan-Flagler) 9% 570 692
Washington (Olin) 31% 540 698
