GMAT is different

The GMAT is an entrance exam, not an exit exam. The GMAT does not test “what you know”; rather, it tests “how you think”. You cannot study for the GMAT by investing time in learning the background study material. The learning process for studying for the GMAT is, therefore, different.

Roads is different

At Roads, we not only teach you the necessary formulae, rules, tricks, tips, and short-cuts, we also work on your reading, reasoning and logical decision-making skills. By the end of your studies, we are sure you will start thinking like the test-maker and be well on your way to maximizing your innate abilities on the GMAT.

Our approach leads to high scores

Keep in mind the GMAT is still a standardized test with a standardized set of questions. We will teach you all the tricks and traps, formulae, shortcuts as well as the obscure concepts to do your best. Furthermore, throughout your training, you will be required to sit through mock exams under strict examination conditions. This also aids you in the process of adjusting to the pressure of the “real thing” when the time comes. With an inside perspective into the test problems and the time pressures, you will be able to perform to your full potential.


Roads provides premium test preparation and academic tutoring services, delivered by some of the best tutors to help students maximize their test scores and admissions potential for top B-Schools. We first assess the strengths and weaknesses of our students through our post enrolment Diagnostic Test for a customized study plan and effective usage of study time based on the student’s specific academic profile.

Based on our assessment, we emphasize our focus on the candidate’s weak areas by meticulously monitoring and continuously fine-tuning each student’s tutoring program. We also provide thoroughly researched and customized study materials with strategies and practice drills. Additionally, students are required to sit through 12 compulsory full length GMAT Mock Tests. In addition, they also have the option of sitting through an additional 12 full length Mock Tests.

We follow the Socratic teaching methodology using interactive classroom sessions on Multimedia platforms. Our emphasis lies on the highest yield content that shows up most frequently on test day. Furthermore we do not impose time constraints allowing you to improve on your problem areas.

Finally, we provide our students with a last-minute orientation and stress-buster session before their GMAT exam, thus ensuring that each student is able to perform to his or her full potential on test day.


Our team consists of high-performing dedicated individuals from the leading universities of the US and the UK, who are committed to excellence and an outstanding quality of work. They enable our students to choose the right path and guide them in their endeavours to achieve success.

All our instructors must have prior teaching experience in order to be considered and undergo a rigorous auditioning process to be extended an offer. Additionally in order to attract and retain the best teachers, we pay them some of the highest salaries in the industry.

What this means for you - At Roads, we don’t just teach our students, we strive to educate them. We believe Roads is the destination for SUCCESS.
