I started rather late with my GMAT preparations—in mid-November. And my aim was to
take the GMAT in January!” says Yashaswi Aryal, a KUSOM grad who also holds an MS
in Marketing Research from Virginia Commonwealth University. Post her Masters,
Yashaswi returned to Nepal and worked in Marketing Consultancies in the areas of
brand development and market research.
“I had been hoping to do an MBA for quite some time, but it was only last year (in
October 2018) that I really started weighing my options,” she says, when asked about
her motivation to appear for the GMAT. Yashaswi took the EF-Jamboree Nepal
Diagnostic Test to start off with and was told that her Quantitative result was decent
enough and her score would improve marginally if she focused on it. But her Verbal
skills came across as a definite problem area. Thus, Yashaswi knew that the Verbal
section would be the make-or-break section for her as far as the GMAT was concerned.
She explains further, “In verbal, specifically, I was good at RC and Critical Reasoning.
But, Sentence Correction was more problematic, more or less, because in Nepal the
pedagogy related to teaching English in schools is not consistent with the American
standard of English, which the GMAT follows.”
Putting her trust in Jamboree’s faculty and staff entirely, Yashaswi took the GMAT and
scored an impressive 690. ‘Don’t over-contemplate. If you’ve joined Jamboree, focus on
the recommended study pattern and complete the study material. It is more than
enough!’ is Yashaswi’s advice to GMAT aspirants. Thanks Yashaswi, we’ll make sure to
pass it on to our students!
