On 21 September 2007 when I gave my GRE exam I scored 1590/1600 with an 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 the U.S. to pursue my postgraduate studies at two of the most elite IVY Leagues – Cornell and Harvard. After spending 5 years in the U.S., I returned in 2013 and laid the foundation of Brightlink Prep whose main goal is to help aspiring students secure top scores and admissions at top global programs.
