“I started a bit late with my GMAT preparation—in November. And my aim was to take the GMAT in January!” says Yasser Tanvir, a Hindu College grad who also holds an MS in Operations Research from Virginia Commonwealth University. Post his Masters, Yasser returned to India and worked in marketing consultancies in the areas of brand development and market research.
“I had been thinking to do an MBA for quite some time, but it was only last year (in October 2016) that I really put my mind to it,” he says, when asked about his inspiration to appear in the GMAT. Yasser took the Jamboree Diagnostic Test in the beginning and was told that his quantitative scores were fine and his score would improve marginally if he focused on it. But his verbal scores were iffy. So Yasser knew that verbal was the make-or-break section for him.
He explains further, “In verbal, specifically, I was good at RC and Critical Reasoning. But Sentence Correction was a problem area, more or less, because in India the way English is taught in schools is not according to what the American standard of English is, which the GMAT follows.”
Putting his trust in Jamboree’s faculty and staff entirely, Yasser took the GMAT and scored a massive 750. ‘Don’t look around. If you’ve joined Jamboree, focus on the recommended study pattern and complete the study material. It is enough’ is Yasser’s advice to GMAT aspirants. Thanks Yasser, we’ll make sure to pass it on to our students!
