Hi folks, Italian MBA 2024 applicant here. Can someone pls explain me how US schools (M7) convert Italian/French grades in GPA? Since we do not have percentile in all classes, do US schools convert the absolute grade (e.g. 100/110, 17/20 etc.) or do they always need percentile?
Took the GRE twice and scored in the 95-99% for Writing and 85-90% in Reading. Math however I’m struggling on and scored around 70%. Is there any method you have used to improve scores? I’ve used Kaplan test banks and a dozen practice tests from ETS , Kaplan, and Barron where I score about 85-90% but just perform terribly during the actual exam. Could the math subject test be a supplement as well? What strategies have you all used to improve your math score?
