      Hi Sruthi,

      You can apply to YLP next year. You need to work on all areas of your candidature. Academics ( they look average now) , extra currics ( leading initiatives such as placements, organizing festivals etc), internships for stage 1. Dont worry about GMAT rightaway because you need to submit GMAT score only after you clear stage 1 and you will get ample time for that.
