Coaching at IMFS

The Science of Test Prep
With 8 students getting the full score in the GRE; IMFS enjoys the reputation of being the best GRE Test Prep school in India. These stupendous results are engendered via nurturing the student over a period of almost 6 months of training. The classroom contact program helps students understand the test, learn the basics needed to excel, and then be prepared to understand the theory. In addition to this class contact for almost 5 months, students are introduced to the GRE/ GMAT/ SAT examinations through simulated test scenarios and multiple mock tests. Besides strengthening their academic competencies to tackle the tests, our well-rounded approach encourages students to build confidence and resilience for future challenges, as we believe that is the key to ultimate success! At each level, the faculty, led by K. P. Singh, engages the students in discussions about not only the Tests, but also in how to be ideal students in life. Thus, IMFS prepares the student not just for the GRE/ GMAT/ SAT tests, but ensures that we prepare a student who is armed with all the right tools to do well in his chosen career!
