Frequently Asked Questions

As there are several application rounds, do I have to pass all rounds successively?

Each “round” represents a distinct period in which you may apply, not a succession of steps for your application.

If I do not pass in one application round, can I apply for another application round again in an application year?

Yes. Repeat application for later rounds in an application year is accepted.

Is there a minimum GMAT or GRE score required to apply?

No. We accept applicants with a wide range of test scores. GMAT or GRE score is just a piece of data among the many used to evaluate an application.
