July 2015: Kaplan Test Prep International has signed a Kaplan Certified Education Provider (KCEP) Agreement with GATEFORUM, one of India's leading Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) test preparation companies.
This Agreement will provide opportunities for Indian students to prepare for international entrance tests such as GRE®, GMAT®, SAT®, and USMLE® with Kaplan preparation courses.
GATEFORUM will be an exclusive Kaplan Certified Educational Provider (KCEP) for in-person programs across India, and will also offer Kaplan's online courses. GATEFORUM is looking to have 40 centres over the next 5 years and train 40,000 students during this period.
Announcing the partnership, Mr. Aditya Reddy, Director, GATEFORUM said, “GATEFORUM has been actively looking at diversifying its business in the test preparation sector and we are very pleased to be associated with Kaplan to offer quality test preparation for international exams to students in India. We are looking to leverage our network in 65 cities and existing access to a huge set of students for this venture. Around 90,000 students take up GRE and 25,000 take up GMAT every year. In the absence of the right training many of them are unable to get the right score to get into a university of their choice. With this collaboration with Kaplan, GATEFORUM shall be contributing in a big way to meet their aspirations.”
Mr. Bharat Krishna, G.M and V.P, Kaplan Test Prep International said, “We are excited to collaborate with GATEFORUM to offer best-in-class learning opportunities for our students from India. We see this as a big opportunity to get the right students with India having its goal to provide education to everyone.”
