GMAT Statistics

Couple of decades back the average GMAT score for top B-school was around 600. In the present time, but, the demand for the MBA course has increased adequately. As a result, many more students are applying to these schools, which means, the average GMAT acceptance scores are increasing every year. It is important to remember that the top colleges don’t take into consideration only the GMAT test scores, but also the overall favorable traits like diversity, unusual accomplishment or success, etc. These factors allow many students to gain acceptance with a lower GMAT score. If you have none of these types of traits, then you probably need to break 730 (that's the 99th percent) to have a good chance at a Business school ranked in the top-ten.

The general GMAT score for the top MBA programs at the top notch universities across the globe consistently falls in the 700-730 range. However, scoring perfect 800 on GMAT is not difficult.
