He has improved his previous score by almost 45/80 points, shocking the world as he set a new improvement record. The second best record ever heard in Pakistan had been held by another young student a few years ago.

Having achieved the distinction, Saad Amer intends to apply to top business schools in the world including Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Yale, Cambridge, Oxford, Columbia, HEC Paris, INSEAD, London School of Economic and the London Business School. He hopes that he would be able to land a good scholarship from one of these international institutions of highest repute.

Saad Amer said that he wishes to spread the knowledge he has acquired and for the purpose he has already made himself available on the social media.

“I have recently launched my own YouTube channel by the name of ‘GRE341/340 with Saad Amer’ and for specific queries any student can have access to me through ‘Instagram’ page, which is @GRE341withsaad’ or through my Facebook page ‘GRE341/340 with Saad Amer’,” Saad Amer said.

“I would like to advise all future aspirants not to focus too much on solving questions but to change the approach towards solving the questions. Through this approach or concept, one do not get trapped by these standardised tests that I have managed to crack,” he added.

Saad Amer had been a brilliant student throughout as he had won top distinction in Cambridge International Examination in O/A levels. In the extracurricular activities he also and held the position of ‘Best Sportsman’ throughout the four years he was at LUMS.
