Hi Rujhan. How does it feel to break the 700 barrier?
It definitely feels great. I am glad I was able to accomplish this in the first attempt itself.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I completed my Mechanical Engineering from Manipal University and I am currently working for Maruti Suzuki. I wanted to do an MBA because I wanted to shift my focus towards Operations Research and be in a managerial position.
What plans did you make to pursue an MBA?
I have attempted the CAT (the management entrance exam in India) a couple of times and even got an admission in a good b-school. However, since the area in which I was interested in lacked focus in that program, I did not opt for it. Eventually, I decided that I would take the GMAT and plan for an MBA abroad.
How did you come across e-GMAT?
I came to know about e-GMAT through one of my friends! So, I did some research about e-GMAT on GMAT Club and immediately realized that your offerings could suit my needs.
Were you skeptical to pay for an educational product online?
Initially, I was. However, after hearing from my friends about the really bad classroom coaches offered in my locality, I dropped off any plans of classroom coaching and started becoming more inclined towards online prep. Another advantage with online prep is that I can easily get in touch with the world’s best instructors who can share their valuable insights into preparation. Finally, after going through the reviews and testimonials given by e-GMAT students, I opted for e-GMAT’s Verbal Live Prep without any further hesitation and I must say I was never disappointed.
What are your thoughts on the Verbal Online course?
Once I became serious about my preparation, I started with SC and I was seriously hooked to the course. I was so impressed with the course I completed all concept files and application files twice just because I enjoyed them very much. CR and RC modules were quite good too. I was able to finish the course within a month with very good grasp on the concepts and applications.
How much did you score in your first mock test?
I scored a 630 in my first mock. However, this mock allowed me to identify the areas that I need to work on. With subsequent efforts in the right areas, I was able to score a 710 on the GMAT.
Thank you Rujhan. Wish you all the very best for your future endeavors.
Thank you Team e-GMAT.
