Saeed Turki

I hope you are doing great. Just to start the week with some good news: I have been accepted into INSEAD and I will start the program this coming October! I would like to thank you again for your support and professionalism. Choosing to follow Option Education courses has been the right choice to bring me again into the world of mathematics and English (which is by far the language that I master the less). Please do not hesitate if you have some students interested in joining INSEAD and I will be happy to share my experience. I will also recommend people that would like to start GMAT exam to join your courses. Thanks again for your help and speak very soon!

Induja Sridharan

I can confidently say that Option has the best coaching on GMAT verbal as it has the best teacher on verbal. The way I was taught to approach sentence corrections and critical reasoning was amazing. On the quantitative front, the trainer’s approach was tailored for different levels of proficiency and the compiled tough questions were of great help. She triggered me to think about what I want and why I want (short term and long term goals), always motivated me and assisted me throughout. Thank you very much Option team!

Hisham Nazir

I would highly recommend the GMAT prep course at Option Training Institute. My score jumped roughly 200 points by enrolling in this 8-week course. The verbal faculty’s command over the English language, along with her extensive experience with the GMAT, makes her an ideal instructor for the Verbal Section. In addition, the math trainer’s unique approach to solving quantitative problems makes him an excellent teacher for anyone looking to substantially improve his quantitative score. In short, I am 100% satisfied with the overall service provided to me by Option Training Institute.

SCORE: 760

Karan Goyal

Preparing for GMAT while working full time was a daunting task for me. Thanks to Option Institute I was able to manage both. Along with being experts in GMAT tutoring for both Quant & Verbal, Option has devised a program which is tailored to accommodate the demands of working professionals.

SCORE: 690

Rajkamal

What I liked about Option : In Verbal, I liked the way we were taught to identify different types of questions and isolate the errors (sentence correction) or follow the logic of different questions (CR and RC). Extensive practice of these techniques helped me improve my score. The best part was the practice tests (5 of them) that I were given to me. Unlike the sample tests we get from GMAC, these tests give us a detailed feedback on our performance (based on score per question and also based on time spent per question) along with our score.

SCORE: 720

Simar Singh

Being under the tutelage of Radhika ma’am has truly been a wonderful experience and one which has helped shaped my career and future. Her way of teaching is outstanding and very effective. She has to be one of the most knowledgeable, polite and hard working teachers i have ever met. She was born to be a teacher and I am very glad to have to been taught by her. Outstanding!

SCORE: 720

Karim Ghoul

Rizwan Ihsan

Option Institute not only helped me with improving the theory part, but it also gave me the discipline and rigor to study consistently.
