Hello Sohan,

Hope you are doing well.

As there are no specific dates for conducting GMAT 2019, prospective test takers can choose a date according to their convenience. However, candidates have to take at least 16 days’ break between two attempts. Also, one cannot exceed five GMAT exams within a 12-month period. A candidate can take no more than eight re-tests in a lifetime.

Feel free for further queries.

Good luck

Hi. I have a GMAT score of 470. have 2.5 years work experience. 10th - 89%. 12th - 91%. BE - 89%. what are my chances of getting a call for TAPMI? Please reply.

Sampriti Student Expert 19th Jan, 2020
TAPMI Manipal has already released their cutoffs for various entrance exams. For GMAT one needs a minimum of 630 scores. But if you've appeared for other exams like CAT or XAT you can get a call if you have a minimum of 85 percentile there.

Moreover you have a work experience of 30 months which means if you'll be eligible for profile based shortlisting. But since your GMAT scores are far lesser than what is required you should try with other exams (if you've appeared for those exams and have a percentile above 80).

Good Luck
