More About Our Company

Basically there are two things that I wanted to share with my readers and students on my “About Me” page: Ofcourse the first one is a bit about me, then a bit about why I started with BrightLink Prep.

On 21 September 2007 when I gave my GRE exam I scored 1590/1600 with a 800/800 in the Quantitative section. (This converts to a 339/340 on the Revised Scale). In 2008 I gave my GMAT and got a 97 percentile. Then I went to U.S. to pursue my postgraduate studies at one of the elitest IVY League – Cornell and also took up a couple of courses at Harvard.


Three and a half years later. . .


… when I was in Pakistan I started getting a lot of queries from students aspiring to go to the U.S. for higher studies regarding GRE, GMAT, Admissions, Recommendation, Statement of Purpose etc. . .

This propelled me to start BrightLink Prep – with the only aim of helping out prospective students in Pakistan getting into U.S. and doing the GRE and GMAT.

About BrightLink Prep’s Spirit


Harvard and Cornell played very influential roles in my life. I have a dream – every fellow Pakistani who loves education should make it to such places. And I would love to guide you towards that goal.

I hope you find my courses and the associated blog to be of value.
