Hey Thomas,Hope you are doing good.I recently gave my GMAT and had a miserable score of 540. I really badly want to go to the Melbourne Business School for an MIM Human Resource, and their average GMAT requirement is of 635.I am planning to re appear for the GMAT.I want to ask how important is the GMAT score? Because i have a fairly acceptable profile:10th - 88%12th - 93.5%B.com aggregate - 73%.Decent participation in co-curricular activities and an association of 2 years with an NGO .
Is it a good decision to give the GMAT again? And lastly, is the Melbourne Business School a good choice for the course?

thank you for your question. The Melbourne Business School's average GMAT score is 635 and their minimum requirement is 600. Alternatively, you need a GRE score of 312. Hence, a GMAT score with 540 is not sufficient.
I recommend you doing the GMAT again, especially if you had higher scores in the preparatory GMAT tests. Of course, you have no guarantee that your second score will be higher - but from my experience, the chances are good, for the following reasons:
(1) You can practice more.(2) You know the test situation - being more familiar with it may make it easier to concentrate on the test.
I had 590 in my first GMAT and 660 in my second. As a non-native speaker, I could particularly improve my quantitative score.
