QS- LEAP (Learn&Prepare with Friends) was created in June 2015, with an aim to allow applicants from across the globe to prepare for the GMAT and other such– all for free.  QS-LEAP emerged from the belief that test prep support should be easily accessible, free of cost, and that learning works best when social. The resulting platform, therefore, provides a community of interacting students and tutors. Since its launch, the platform has supported more than 200,000 students from around the globe, of whom 35,000+ monthly users have undertaken their test prep journeys with QS-LEAP.

On the launch of its second version, the QS- LEAP team collected stories of students who are doing well on the platform to motivate them and use their example to motivate other users. Here are their inspiring stories. Hope this propels you to take your preparation to the next level and be a topper on the leaderboard.
