About the Author:

I am lucky, because through teaching, I get to live my passion. I love inspiring and learning. And I love results. There is no better feeling than seeing one of your students finally “get it.” I did my O and A Levels from Lahore Grammar School and after acing my own SAT, I graduated from LUMS in 2013. I have been teaching and mentoring students since I was in A Level and till date, I have taught more than 5000+ local and international students: helping them with their SAT exam and college applications. I have taught at various schools like Beaconhouse School System, Lahore Grammar School, LACAS, The Froebels, UCL , The Lahore Alma and through my experience, I have realized the most important aspect of teaching is to understand each and every individual’s needs. This can only be developed through a personal understanding of each of them. You can always drop by to have a discussion with me over a cup of coffee! Looking forward to teaching you. :)

    AOA! I’m currently in A2 with the subjects Chem, Physics, Biology and Psychology. I wanted to ask if it’s possible to apply to an English major in LUMS with these subjects and what minimum SAT score i’d have to attain. If you need to know any additional details, please do let me know. Eager for your reply.

      Yes, you can apply for an English major in LUMS. SAT score should be as high as possible.

      There is no minimum cut off. Higher the better will be my answer.

    Aoa . Im an international student , currently in A2 level with subs math phys and chem. I wanted to
    I got 3A* and 2 A in my o levels so how much would you say in average that i would need in SAT to ensure my admission in lums ?

      I’d say, higher the better.
      Having said that, the avg sat score of lums for the year 2017 was 1300 so you should aim for 1350 or above. The entire academic background is also taken into consideration.

      It depends on the overall profile now. If he has good academic background, he might get in.
      The avg SAT score for lums was 1300 last year.

    I scored 1A* 8As 1B in my olvls, got 2Bs and 1A in my AS (still in A2) but got a 1300 in my SAT1 this December. Should I improve my SAT by taking the March or go with this one? Also does applying to lums in round 1 give you an edge over the round2 applicants? Thank you

    • Talal Ali Jan December 18, 2018 at 8:43 am - Reply

      You do get an edge if you apply in Round 1. 1300 is a respectable score for LUMS but I can’t say anything with certainty. Your overall profile is good and you meet all the requirements as well so keeo your fingers crossed 🙂

        Ummm well that’s a relief thanks a lot! Does this mean that the essay score does not carry much weightage? Because I’m confused whether to take the SAT again or not just because of the essay
