LUMS attracts most of my students and so I’m frequently asked about the details of the fee and cost required to graduate from there. Before I walk you through the fee structure along with other costs, let me give you a few other points that you’ll need to know.

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. :)
