    I am targeting top 15~25 business school in europe. especially CBS, BI and SSE.
    I took GRE and got (verbal 151, quant 161, awa 4.0) I know it's not a good score.
    Do I have to retake GRE and apply next year ?

    I am willing to take the test again of course!

    Hi there,

    the entry requirements and admissions criteria (which are not the same) differ strongly among schools, even among the top 25. Before you re-do the GRE, I would recommend you to inform yourself about the expectations of your favorite schools.

    Please read carefully the summary of my survey among 53 international Masters in Management and their entry requirements. Here you find answers directly from the schools on whether they require the GMAT or GRE or not? What's the average score? What's the minimum score? etc.

    On top of this, I recommend to get in contact with a current student at your favorite schools and ask him or her about the admissions procedure. Simply and politely ask the school to bring you in contact.

    Best wishes,
    Thomas
