Short Answer – The average GMAT score or admission to NUS Business Analytics has nonetheless always been 690+. If you score above 690, you have a fair shot and you will receive an encouraging response to your profile evaluation from the admission committee.
Long Answer – However, there is no such thing as a safe score, higher is always better. In our years of consulting experience, we have seen our clients with as low a score as 640 getting selected into top schools like MIT and on the other hand, someone with a 770 getting rejected too. A good benchmark that we advise all our clients to beat is the average GMAT score of the last entering class as mentioned in the Class profile published every year. Scoring above the average gets you a fair shot.

You can catch up in other sections of the application by writing outstanding essays or performing well in an interview later. But it is always nice to start ahead of the competitor. A higher GMAT score helps one gain a competitive advantage.
