Case Studies

Meet Ashita, a 12th class student from Modern Barakhamba Road.

Ashita always yearned to do her undergraduate studies in Economics from world’s top university. After scoring a moderate 1950 on SAT, she thought that it would be impossible for her to pursue her dream. She even dropped her plan on taking SAT subject tests as she thought that SAT score of 1950 could no way land her in top school. But still she wanted to have faith in her and in order to realize her dream; she started looking for a right Professional advisor. She visited many places and she was told only one thing:

“You need to improve your SAT scores and you don’t even have SAT subject tests. You need to retake your SAT 1 for sure and probably take SAT 2 also. There is no way you can get admitted to top universities.”

It was a little too much for a class 12th student as she was busy with her school curriculum so obviously she was not very upbeat with this suggestion. While searching her way she contacted Mnemonic for an honest advice on her admissions. After talking to her we realized that she really wanted to do something big in her career. Although it was challenging but we knew how important is this for her. We motivated her and encouraged her to apply with the existing scores without burdening her of retaking the SAT. We love to work hard and accept challenges.

Our experts at Mnemonic started counseling her and shortlisted universities where she can apply. We shortlisted 9 universities for her including:
  1. University of Chicago (#3 in world for Economics)
  2. University of California Berkeley (#7 in world for Economics)
  3. NYU (#12 in world for Economics)
  4. University of California LA (#14 in world for Economics)
  5. Duke University (#25 in world for Economics)
  6. Boston University (#38 in world for Economics)
It is always a dream for Ashita to get admit from these highly ranked and reputed universities.

Our meticulous guidance throughout the application process helped her to get offers from UC Berkeley, NYU, UCLA, Boston and 3 others. Although she missed UChicago very narrowly, she is extremely happy to get admitted to UC Berkeley among others.

So admission to UC Berkeley:

  1. SAT 1950
  2. NO SAT Subject Tests
  3. NO AP exams

At Mnemonic, we accept you as you are and work hard to give you your dream admission. A top student with perfect scores will surely get into top university, but we feel proud when we work hard to give students what they dream of.

Meet Archit Khosla, 12th grade student from Spring Dales school

Archit wanted to pursue his undergraduate degree in the realms of Computers. He was an average student with 70% marks in his school studies. Like any other student in India he too was preparing for IIT-JEE. He wanted to take SAT exam as a backup plan, just in case he didn’t qualify for IIT. He visited Mnemonic and shared his plans with us. Although we respected that Archit wanted to go to IIT, from our end we wanted to give him a university better than IIT on international standards. With this determination in our mind, we started his SAT training. He scored a low score of 1250 in his first day diagnostic test at Mnemonic. Our faculties started his SAT training by making use of unique Mnemonic Techniques. As he was too busy with his IIT coaching, he was not able to concentrate on his SAT exam and as a result he scored an average 1750 on SAT 1. We encouraged him to take SAT subject tests and he scored 750 in Maths Level 2 & 720 in Physics.

Our expert counselors shortlisted 6 universities in Computer Science including:
  1. University of California San Diego (#33* in world for Computer Science)
  2. Purdue (#44* in world for Computer Science)

*Source: QS World Rankings
**IITs are ranked 59 (IIT B), 60 (IIT D), 61 (IIT K)

Our guidance throughout the entire application process helped Archit to get admits from, both these dream universities i.e. UC San Diego and Purdue including 3 others. Today he is in a university (UC San Diego) that is better than IITs on global platform. Here is what Archit has to say:

“I found Mnemonic to have a very polite and professional staff. They have very innovative way of teaching. Mnemonic justifies its name as they teach with Mnemonic techniques for each and every section. The class timings were flexible and I Thank Mnemonic for helping me out for applications. Its only because of Mnemonic I could pursue Computer Science at UCSD. My dream was IIT but I got better university than my dream.”

For Archit, he got a university better than IIT, and for Mnemonic, its Mission Accomplished! We take pride when we deliver such results. We love to accept challenges and it feels great to accomplish them.


"I am really grateful to Shirish sir for helping me realize my dream of master's in the US from a good university. Owing to his dedication and the personal attention bestowed on all of my applications, I have got an admit from Columbia University. Also the content writers and counselors have all been extremely helpful, accommodating and great guides on this journey."


"It was a great experience for me. Mnemonic and its teachers provided me with all the facilities that a student needs. It was really fun studying in Mnemonic. I would certainly recommend everyone to join Mnemonic for their study abroad needs."

($ 25,000 Scholarship)

"The most appreciable thing was that I got to write all the essays myself & so it was my own thought process which was refined by Mnemonic's fine quality writers. I have heard that some consultants write the whole essay where the individual contribution or ownership of the process becomes very limited. I think the team is very polished, mature, experienced and very helpful at all times. I had a good experience all through."


"All the hard work and effort that the Mnemonic team had put in finally met appreciation and justice. Everyone in Mnemonic is very professional. The features of Applix are very helpful. I did not have to worry about anything regarding my admissions since the day I contacted Mnemonic. Thanks for a wonderful experience."

"I thank Mr. Shirish and the whole team of Mnemonic Education for their guidance and support. Your team has been very professionally dedicated during the entire process. I have got the admission at the most prestigious, HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL. My dream of a lifetime has come true. It has made everyone proud of my achievement. To add cherry on top, I have been awarded scholarship worth $11250. I am now in the elite Business class!"


"As the second youngest Chess Grand Master, my time is mostly spent in travelling for tournaments. In such a scenario, completing my application and getting an admission into Stanford University looked like a distant dream. The team at Mnemonic Education was dedicated enough to constantly keep in touch with me and help me in enhancing the creativity of my essays and submitting my applications on time. I look forward to my journey ahead at Stanford and would like to thank Mnemonic Education's entire team for making the process easier and smoother for me."
