In the 1900’s flying was considered impossible, but the wright brothers made it happen. Climbing the mount everest was considered impossible until someone conquered it. Going to the moon, seemed impossible but mankind made it happen. Launching a rocket and re-landing it seemed impossible but SpaceX did that. Humans have this ability, that if they put their mind to something, nothing is impossible.
This is the kind of motivation or focus you need when it comes to improving your GRE score, because compared to the above examples improving your GRE score is definitely not impossible. It won’t happen overnight it would need time, patience and a lot of preparation and effort but you will get there.
Over our years of experience of working with students of different skill sets, ranging from doctors, engineers, artists to lawyers and people from different backgrounds who went to private colleges and even those who went to public schools, we have seen people drastically improve their score. We have had many students, Let’s discuss some recent examples.
ScholarDen’s GRE Success Stories:
- Bilal, when he came to us was very weak in both verbal and quantitative. The first time he took a diagnostic test, he barely scored 267 (GRE Lowest score is 260). But we diligently worked with Bilal, providing him with tailored and personalized content and mentoring, giving him reading material and practice questions to solve. Finally, with Bilal’s efforts and our input just in a matter of few months, he was able to make a jump of 33 points i.e. 300 GRE score..
- Mateen’s story is one closest to my heart, he was differently abled and unemployed at the time he came to us. His first attempt at a diagnostic was 289 and with a 2.7 CGPA he applied to Germany schools, got rejected from all. He then improved his score from 289 to 319 and finally managed to get partial funded scholarship from one of the better CS programs in USA.
- Shahrukh Kasi a graduate of LUMS initially took a diagnostic test (without prep) and scored 303. Then, he joined a famous academy in Lahore but improved his score by just 2 points. Later, he approached us. With our personalized mentoring, we helped him improve his score from 305 to 322 in two months and he managed to get into a fully-funded PhD program in one of the top leading engineering schools in the USA.
- Rabia, another bright student, but weak in some areas, all she needed was some guidance and she was able to make a whopping improvement of 30 points from 300 to 330 in 3 months, making to the Fulbright Scholarship.
These are just a few stories, we have hundreds of these.
The only purpose of sharing stories of such inspiring people is that they are not extraordinary, they are normal people just like you but they are extraordinary in the sense that they were committed to their dreams and had the zeal, zest and passion to improve and achieve their goal of getting a good GRE score. All we did was steer them in the right direction and they were able to make a life for them. You are just like them, if you have gotten a low GRE score, don’t be demotivated, you can and you will improve that score.
