  • Asha, GMAT

    I gave GMAT twice before joining Manhattan Review. Though I practiced hundreds of practice questions from various sources I was not able to understand why I was not finding improvement in my score. My trainer, Mr. Nishin, worked with me even after my class timings to identify my areas of improvement. This is where I felt it is not just the strategies but we need someone to guide us through out and work with us closely to get that target score. Thank you Nishin for all your support. I scored 720 on my GMAT and this is definitely not possible without you.

  • Ashish, GRE

    Thank You so much!!! This is Ashish. I scored 169 in verbal and 169 in quant. The sessions are great!!.The best part of online training that I loved…could schedule a doubt clarification session within an hour during normal business hours. It was like on demand training. Loved it.

  • Ritu Sharma, SAT

    The SAT course was very helpful, I don’t think I would’ve improved my reading skills without it. This course also gave me strategies to break down a reading. I got a good feel for the Sat and had practice in areas I struggled in. Thank you for all the support. I scored 1520 Q- 780 and V – 740.

  • Naren Varahagiri, ACT

    I scored 34 in ACT test. I had a very pleasant experience right from my first day. I was initially confused whether to take SAT or ACT. So, the counsellors arranged one on one session with a training expert to check my strengths and weaknesses in different areas. Then, I was advised to take ACT after they have evaluated my performance in the test conducted by the expert. I think the advice paved a clear path to my success. I really appreciate their experience in assessing students like me.

  • Surya Varma, IELTS

    It’s a real pleasure to be a part of you guys during my preparation for IELTS. I a m Surya and this is my 3 rd attempt and in all my previous attempts, though i scored 7.5 in Listening and Reading and 7.0 band in Speaking, my writing score was only around 5.0 band. The student practice portal and exclusive grammar classes have helped me a lot to get 7.0 band in writing too. Our class trainer was so patient. she took so much of additional time to review almost more than 20 essays.
