Your daily goal progress and overall goal progress within QS- LEAP are determined on these two parameters (i.e. your target score and number of practice questions daily) that you enter during the sign up. Changing them would lead to miscalibration of your progress percentage. For this reason, we do not allow a change in the target score. However, feel free to attempt more number of questions than suggested by your Daily Goal.
Ranking is our attempt to foster a spirit of healthy competition amongst this prep community!

Global Rank: Global rank reflects where you stand amongst other users preparing for the same test on QS-LEAP. For instance, if your global rank is 45/20000, it means, that there are 44 other users who are scoring better than you on the platform for the same test!

Network Rank: Your network consists of your peers - people you choose to follow and people who follow you. Network rank shows where you stand in your preparation amongst your peers.
Yes, it will. Your study schedule clearly outlines the amount of regular practice you require to achieve your target score. If you miss your preparation for a few days, you will most likely see a drop in your overall rank on the platform.
The Q&A section on QS-LEAP is open to all the members of the platform. That includes all our users, community managers, tutors and other experts. While we are sure that everyone attempts to answer the questions with the spirit to help the others in the community, we cannot ensure the credibility of the answers. Everyone can makes mistakes, right? If you notice any wrong answers, we encourage you to reply to them, downvote the answer, and bring them to the notice of our community managers. We will do our best to provide you with the right, and most credible answer.
Leaderboard is a scoreboard showing the names & score details of the top candidates preparing for each of the exams. Inside QS-LEAP, there are two types of leaderboards - Weekly Leaderboard & Overall Leaderboard. Like most other score-keeping formats across the world, the purpose of the leaderboard at QS-LEAP is to indicate a descending order of the candidates with the highest "Test Score" points.

Along with providing motivation & meaningful rewards that aid in a candidate's preparation to ace their respective test, an increasing test score will also help create a strong identity for the best performing candidates within the QS-LEAP community for other candidates to look upto & follow their study patterns.

Here's the points system based on which the leaderboard has been created. The higher your "test score", the more likely you are in the race to the top of the weekly leaderboard & the overall leaderboard. (follow this up with the points system table.)

Tutors are trusted partners of QS and have been selected through a thorough screening process.
Online tutoring sessions that take place in an interactive, digital classroom. This include video, audio and a chat feature for direct communication with your tutor and a shared whiteboard. Unlike a LIVE class environment, one-to-one online tutoring sessions happen only between a single tutor and a single user.
While selecting a tutor, keep in mind the subject expertise you are looking for. Study and compare profiles of different tutors - watch video interview, go through their previously answered questions, check their package offerings. The best way to understand whether you like the tutors' teaching style is to attend a LIVE class conducted by them. (You can check the list of upcoming classes here.) If you are still confused, you can get in touch with the QS -LEAP team. The team recommends you the choice of tutors based on your requirements.
Very simply put, tutoring packages are bulk hourly session bookings with a tutor. Tutors may also choose to pre-define packages by defining a topic and the number of hourly sessions required to teach the same. You can view the list here.
Yes, you can. Your "My Classes" calendar will ensure that no two bookings clash with each other.
You can schedule the rest of the sessions by going to the "Book My Session" tab under "My Classes" on your QS- LEAP account.

You can cancel or reschedule a session by going to the "My Classes" on your QS- LEAP account.
If a booked session is cancelled upto 48 hours to 2 weeks before the session - the cancellation fee charged to the student is 25% of the transaction amount. If a session is cancelled anytime before two weeks to the session, the cancellation fee is zero, however, the student has to bear transaction charges. Student can reschedule a session only once. For instance, if a student has bought 5 one-hour sessions together as a package, he/she can reschedule each of the sessions maximum once.

CASE A - In case when a tutor initiates a reschedule, a student gets the option to cancel the session (i.e. get a full refund) or confirm the rescheduled time slot.

CASE B - If a tutor initiates the cancellation of a session, student has two options - either get a refund or book a session with another tutor & pay the cost difference.

CASE C - If the Website initiates a reschedule for session, the student gets the option to cancel the session (i.e. get a full refund) or reschedule the session

CASE D - If the Website initiates the cancellation of a session, student gets the full refund.

A qualified candidate will be allowed to schedule a virtual meeting with the B-School.
