    I checked their website but found no mention of a minimum or average GRE score requirements for MSc Economics. I understand that the applicant's overall profile and reference letters matter as well, but I wanted an idea of what a good enough score would be, especially after coming across the following:

    "The GRE is mandatory for the Programs in Economics and Data Science applicants. Candidates to all other programs are strongly recommended to provide the scores of the GRE. Though not compulsory, GRE results are often a key element for admission decisions."

    Any ideas, anyone?

    How did you do in the end?

    I sat my GRE earlier this month, with 158 on both the Quantitative and Verbal sections. I'm not sure if this performance on the Quant is sufficient to hit their average for these programmes however

    You can visit different school's websites and go under graduate faq. Not all schools have it, but the ones that do, commonly state 160 as the 'minimum' to be competitive in admissions.
