US and Canada official said, that now the varsities are paying more attention to other things and assessing student's overall performance not just looking at the score of GMAT or other entrance test scores. They are assessing the performances of Indian and Asian students aspiring to pursue higher education in US and Canada.

Luna Das, IDP Education's national manager for training and client relationship (North America), said, "The universities are paying attention to other things than just test scores lately to judge aspiring Asian students seeking admission to American universities. They are trying not to penalise the profiles of students if they fail to log high scores in SAT, GMAT and GRE entrance tests."

She said, "Usually, one cannot expect a student with a GMAT score of 580 to make it to Stanford University.
