HEC Paris MIM


ziyad30

Hi,
I have GMAT score of 710 (Q50, V36), Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering from SRM University ( 6.6/10) and 2 years of work experience. Is my GPA too low for the Master in Management program at LBS or HEC Paris?

Thanks in advance,
Ziyad

How does your GPA compare to the rest of your class? (Do you know what percentile of the class you were in?) For schools in India, it's often hard to judge GPA without knowing the comparative stats.

There’s no way to compare my GPA with the rest of the class. However, on my certificate it’s stated that my GPA is in first class but I’m not exactly sure what that means.

A first class degree typically means that you're in the top 70% of students. That's good, and if that is indeed the case it's a good signal that it's a competitive school where a low GPA isn't necessarily a detriment.

However, if you attended a smaller (less well-known) school, you may need to clarify this for the adcomms, since they may not understand. Anywhere you can write "first class" in the applications, I suggest to do so.
