Long Answer – 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 640 getting selected into top schools like INSEAD 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;
“The higher your score, the better is it for your interview or admission chance.”
If you plan to apply with a score below the average, then you are starting a fight with one hand tied behind your back or, say, starting a few yards behind your competitors.

A higher GMAT score helps one gain a competitive advantage.
