Is it compulsory to do GMAT to get admitted for MBA degree in any of the top universities and colleges?
It is not compulsory to have the GMAT score to do MBA. Some business schools and colleges compulsorily ask for GMAT score while others may have optional requirements for GMAT score. However, top business schools and colleges are always looking for talented students and GMAT tests ability of the student on variety of skills which are necessary to get success in business schools. This means the chances to get admitted in top business schools automatically increase if you have good GMAT scores.

It depends on the business school you choose for your MBA. Most business schools and colleges do not publish specific admission criteria, including minimum required GMAT scores. MBA programs are offered by variety of schools with different accreditation and entrance requirements. The importance given to the GMAT score may be different depending on the business school you choose.
Some give very low importance to the GMAT while others give it a very high importance. GMAT score isn't the only thing that plays a vital role in selection process of the student. Most of the top business schools use factors like academic merit, GPA, class rank, letter of recommendations, extracurricular activities, work experience, and public services along with GMAT scores.
