Your interview, essays, references, career goals, and soft skills will also play an important role in the final admission decision; however, a competitive score falling within the appropriate range of your dream school can really strengthen your application and yield some great scholarship offers.

All of the GMAT tips shared below also apply to the GRE and are useful resources to anyone preparing for an English proficiency test such as the IELTS or TOEFL. A great GMAT score is just one of the many elements that make a successful application. Keep things in perspective, follow these key steps, and do your best.
