Overview

AdmissionCritical’s network of quality-assured, elite (750+ or 99th %ile only), specialist one-to-one GMAT tutors are dedicated to helping you achieve your best possible score, through a completely personalized and cost-effective prep program.

So you can score higher, faster!

We currently operate in London and multiple other locations within the US and Canada.

Founded in 2006 by a top MBA graduate with a 750 GMAT score and experience with similar standardized tests stretching back over 25 years, AdmissionCritical addresses a major gap in the market for GMAT preparation services, between:

Expensive yet ineffective branded classroom courses, and
The “Wild West” of freelance tutors of greatly varying quality and reliability

Essentially we occupy a middle position in the market, designed to capture all of the advantages of 1-to-1 coaching while ensuring tutor quality, with a lean business model that benefits all parties:

most importantly, students – who receive tuition that is top-notch, yet cost-effective;
tutors – who are motivated by one-to-one engagement with students, as well as receiving the lion’s share of the fees we charge; and
of course AdmissionCritical itself – that profits by addressing a clear market need with a superior value proposition.

Because of our strict high score requirement for tutors, you can be assured they are masters of and can help you with ANY aspect of the test, be it a troubling question type (quantitative word problems or data sufficiency, or verbal sentence correction, critical reasoning, or reading comprehension), time management issues or simply test-taking nerves.
