As I recall, there is no hard cut-off - the score is looked at in conjunction with the rest of your application.

Cheers,

Hi,

In fact, there is a hard cut-off, however, it is not as high as you may think.

If you pass the cut-off, your score will be looked at in relation to the rest of your resume and in particular your grades in quantitative courses at university, which means

  1. You have been a strong student - don't worry too much about the test
  2. Your grades have not been too strong - you really need to show a strong test result

Best
