Include GMAT in cv - cutoff

I have a GMAT 650 and have not included in my cv.
Would you include it or hide it for MBBs?
Does the decision change for second tier companies?
What's the range you would put on the cv?

Thank you

I would hide anything below 700. If English is your first language or you went to English speaking institutions I would not put anything below 730.

Hope it helps,

Hi,

Agree, would not put below 700-710

650 is unfortunately too low and will not provide you any extra points no matter what the tier is
