If my GPA is on the lower end for MBA programs, is it better for me to take the GRE or GMAT? I was thinking about dual degree programs and my GRE scores have been awesome but should I just take GMAT to make up for my gpa?

Need the answer to this exact scenario

If you can crush the GMAT, do the GMAT. What’s your GRE and GPA?

Low grades+ GEM could make getting into tier 1 B-Schools pretty tough. If that is the case then GRE/GMAT would be certainly better

Just read about the intake criteria of all IIMs I suggest, you’ll know. General is not having a caste based or other kinds of reservations while applying for CAT

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
