I am a GLOBAL GMAT Expert for the world’s largest GMAT community ‘BeatTheGMAT’, having moderated its verbal section and contributed solutions to most tricky GMAT verbal questions for BeatTheGMAT community.
Currently, I am a freelance GMAT verbal trainer in Lahore and through computer-based online teaching.
I have been teaching students from all over the world for the last five years.
Attendees of my GMAT Verbal workshops have achieved scores such as 770 in GMAT with my high-end Verbal course content.
I devote 100% of my time to GMAT verbal and thus TEACH only GMAT verbal in Lahore and online, no QUANT, no SAT, no IELTS, no TOEFL, no ACT, no BULLSH*T.
ONLY GMAT Verbal!
I apologize for not being a ‘JACK of all tests’; I just can’t be and if you are looking for one, looking here will inevitably disappoint you.
Those exposed to my GMAT verbal skills believe I know more about it than anyone else in the world.
Over the years my belief has only strengthened that verbal, more than any other question type, can make or break the case for your b-school admission by a long shot!!!
All sections of GMAT are highly related.
Skills learned for SC come handy not only for other verbal questions but also for Quant section since GMAC is increasingly putting its emphasis on logic-based approach to a problem.
This approach is most aggressively applied in SC type questions; OG 18 is a testimony to this fact.
ALL ‘fresh’ OG 18 SC questions are aggressive on logical tact, and I prepare you to solve these questions in less than 10 seconds, whereas traditional approach by other tutors, such as those from Manhattan prep and Veritas Prep, can consume your time considerably.
Have a look at my solution and approach here, in conjunction with the ManhattanPrep’s tutor.
Moreover, a high score in verbal by non-native GMAT test-takers such a rarity that it always makes its way as a talking point in the interview as well.
Whenever I get time, I run a GMAT SC boot Camp in Lahore. I limit enrollment to 5-7 attendees so that each and every aspect of GMAT SC can be discussed and each attendee be given 100% attention.
At this 2-day training event, I teach all things SC you can’t find online, in books or, anywhere else in the world. It’s my newest, best stuff.
I’m always happy to help my students and see them becoming SC masters.
Next GMAT SC immersive workshop will be held on Oct 20,21, 2018 (in Lahore only).
SC Workshop: Salient Features and my bold promise
The GMAT SC Immersive Workshop (held in Lahore only) is designed to transform you into a GMAT SC grandmaster with expertise across the most frequently tested SC errors including Mastering Meaning, Parallelism, Comparisons, Cause and Effect relationships in SC that also come handy in CR & RC questions, modifiers, etc.
Fast-track your GMAT verbal preparation by following a clear and structured learning path that is sure to get you 100% accuracy in GMAT SC on test day and that too under extreme time constraint conditions.
You’ll receive a holistic understanding of how GMAC approach SC question types and gain advanced expertise in GMAT SC.
The course exposes you to over 8 major errors, 158 sub errors, discussion on more than 500 750+ level SC questions & includes extensive practice material as well as post-workshop practice material to help you master the complete GMAT SC skill set and make you test ready.
If you have been trying to study GMAT SC on your own but haven’t been making much progress, it surely is the time to immerse fully in SC workshop (check the latest schedule for SC Bootcamp).
GMAT RC Bootcamp: What you’ll get.
You have been trying to self-study RC, hoping to beat this beast with ease.
But taming beast takes time and strategy.
In this Bootcamp, I take you from most basic to advance level keeping highly focused approach.
But be warned: there is work involved.
Learn more about this Bootcamp in detail here.
What is the price?
7000.00/- for a complete workshop.
Why the price is so low for the kind of value that a student gets?
Most people think that the price of these workshops are low because I want to help the underprivileged, underdogs or that I am a patriotic person who wants to see Pakistan thrive because of the proliferation of business savvy individuals helping MNCs suck more blood from the Pakistani consumers.
The fact of the matter is that I don’t believe much in underdogs applying for and getting admitted to top-tier b-schools.
But the fact of the matter is if you are underprivileged, top-tier b-school is not the right fit for you.
I think the right place for underdogs is MS or Ph.D.
Moreover, I don’t care much for patriotism as well.
In fact, I don’t believe in Patriotism much.
I think we must conceive humanity as a whole.
Patriotism is a perfect case of ethnocentricism.
The reason these workshops are offered for such a low price is that I am a selfish man.
I play long-term.
For instance (just for the sake of discussion), 7/7 students getting 760 is much beneficial to me than 7/70 getting 760.
Former is a 100% success rate, while later is only 10% success and 90% failure. And as always the failure has a compound effect much stronger than the success.
In fact, this practice of letting only a small cohort in your inner circle was practiced by Sigmund Freud as well.
Ever heard of his student Carl Jung?
I am his big fan and also of his philosophy of Delayed Gratification.
Delayed Gratification is sacrificing present for much better reward in future.
100% success rate is equal to 0% failure.
What it means that no resented students.
And no resentment pays off like hell in future.
And also, I don’t care much for money.
What is the location?
77( main ) Sarfraz Rafiqui road. Lahore Cantt. at the cozy milieu of my home.
Do you offer Workshops every week?
They are offered whenever I get time from my extremely busy schedule.
Watch out for them in the months of Oct and November, though.
How many seats are available per workshop?
Letting everyone attend these workshops just runs counter my philosophy of excellence.
What if I don’t get the results after attending your workshops?
I pay you back double the amount– without asking any question!
For whom is this workshop inappropriate?
If you are aiming for a bottom tier b-school such as LUMS, my workshops can do harm to your philosophy of ambition.
Will I surely get results?
100% if you do your part as well because there is work involved.
You’ll probably be required to put the kind of effort you wouldn’t have put in any other single task in your entire life.
See, I am a ruthless person.
I don’t feel pity easily for an unnerved, overwhelmed mind.
You do your part, I promise you the results.
Why attend these hyper-focused,hyper-accelerated, immersive style workshops?
Because 750 is the new 680!
Let me be brutally honest:
B-school admissions at top-tier schools are becoming increasingly competitive; it’s cut-throat competition out there.
You are extremely lucky to fall in Pakistani pool of aspirants.
This pool is not very competitive.
Pakistani GMAT takers are just not fetching high GMAT score.
You must have heard about the competitiveness of the Chinese and Indian applicant pools–two highly competitive pools.
Relatively less competitiveness of Pakistani pool is both a good and a bad news: Good that you have a low competition, bad because you missed a huge opportunity that nature threw your way.
As I said earlier, Pakistani pool is not very competitive. B-school admission depts are used to with not-too-high GMAT scores coming out of this pool.
If you get a high score, think about how strengthened you have made your case and how difficult have you made it for others from this pool to make it to the same school.
It is very difficult for B-schools to get you in with a low score beyond a threshold.
There is the issue of rankings, which are highly dependent on “Average GMAT Score” of the class.
I am sure you must have heard about that matric before.
Just as you are competing for a slot in a top-tier MBA program, so is the B-school is competing with other B-schools for rankings.
High ranking means a whole lot of benefits for the school, including prestige and brand name.
See MBA degree itself all about brand.
That which you learn in a b-school, can every bit be learned from books or online courses such as those in Coursera or EDX.
What you can’t get from the online courses offered at these platforms is Brand, The Prestige, the fact that you are chosen and are Crème de la crème.
There is a pre-assigned credibility which you can get only from getting associated with a Brand.
LUMS MBA is not a brand.
Harvard is a Brand.
Therefore, schools will not compromise their brand equity, which they have built over the decades, regardless of the ease of competition in a pool.
So, if you are aiming for a high score, excellent!
These workshops are just for you. They are lethal and I am not forgiving either.
I can help you get the kind of a score which your competition can only dream of.
But if you are looking for an easy ride, these workshops are just not meant for you.
Moreover, if you are looking for a mediocre school such as LUMS, I am not a right tutor for you.
I am sure the kind of a score required for this kind of a school, you can very well achieve without any preparation for GMAT.
GMAT till 600 level is extremely easy.
This is how the algorithm of this test works– the question level adaptivity.
GMAT algorithm increases difficulty level exponentially and not linearly
You must have heard about it. Right?
What it means is improving from 530 to 600 is easy.
Jumping from 600 to 650 gets difficult.
And jumping from 650 to 700 is relatively more difficult.
Improving from 700 to 750 is extremely difficult.
There is a reason they call it “700 barrier“.
The good news is 750 is the new 700.
Unless you have at least 730 under your belt, fetching admits from top schools is a far cry.
Verbal score is important and as I said above it can make or break your case because a good verbal score impacts your final score more than a good quant score.
That is, 2 verbal questions answered correctly weigh more than 2 quant questions answered correctly.
I’ll go deep in how the GMAT percentiles some other time.
For now, keep this thing in mind that you cannot afford to have a lousy performance in Verbal.
If you do that year is gone. You are well adviced to try next year.
But if you ace it. I promise you have strengthened your case many a time.
If you are ready for Harvard MBA, these Bootcamps are for you.
Check the schedule for the upcoming BootCamp.
Unfortunately, I do not offer them regularly.
Part of the reason is the Pakistani pool is not very competitive.
This is what I call GMAT crisis in Pakistan.
But as they say, in every crisis there is an opportunity.
Can you see how this crisis is offering you a huge opportunity?
The accomplishments I have quoted here are not for bragging purpose.
In fact, I am nothing without the help of Almighty.
Allah Almighty has been really, really kind to me.
I can’t thank Him enough.
I can’t take credit for my achievements and the efforts that I put will be null had there been no help by Allah, The Most Gracious, The Giver of Honor.
