Recently, we interacted with Mr. Amogh Sanzgiri ,Chief Business Officer, Get.Set.Law, IMS.
Founded in Mumbai in 1977 by Prof. N.R.Rane, IMS Learning Resources is India’s first test preparation institute for the CAT and other management entrance examinations.
Here are the interview highlights:
- What is the IMS’s record or overall success rate when it comes to CUET?
IMS has a consistent track record when it comes to producing results in CUET. We launched our CUET offering in 2022 and over the last 2 years, our 650+ students have secured a perfect 100 percentile! Our success in 2023 was 60% higher than in 2022 when it comes to the 100 percentile success record. Till date, we have produced more than 2200 students who have secured 95 percentile and above in CUET. Our students have secured admissions into the top colleges under Delhi University and the Banaras Hindu University such as St. Stephens, Lady Shri Ram College for Women, Hindu, Miranda House, and DAV College to name a few.
- What tools and teaching techniques do you implement to prepare students for the CUET?
At IMS, we follow the Learn-Practice-Test methodology of program delivery. Our program prepares students to tackle language test (English), domain subject tests (Commerce, Arts, Humanities, and Sciences), and the general aptitude test. The language and general test prep program starts with 100 learning sessions with a stress on fundamentals for each topic which is tested in CUET. Our courseware consists of concept learning followed by a class exercise and a practice exercise to reinforce the learning. We have our own well-curated learning portal myIMS which has around 200 videos covering all the concepts around language and general tests and close to 125 videos which serve as smart reviser for the domain subjects. The portal allows students to reiterate what has been done in the classroom or in the online lectures. In addition to this, IMS provides close to 7000 questions which cover the language, domain and general tests. Our contact programs (classroom and LIVE Online) come with a myPLANs feature. The myPLANs have been developed over the years as a structured mentorship tool and every student is assigned a personal coach to hand hold them throughout their preparation journey whether it is co-developing study plans or seek counseling guidance!
- Do you provide support for students beyond the classroom, such as counseling or doubt-solving sessions?
IMS hand holds students during each step of their CUET prep. The wide range of plausible options available to a student taking CUET (950+ college-course combinations in DU alone) makes the admission process overwhelming for students and their parents. IMS has carefully curated the processes of choosing and applying to key universities and their affiliated colleges and courses. The ‘University Application Support’ feature under IMS’s myIMS portal shall constitute the following tech-enabled tools – subject and college preference selector tool as well as LIVE ask-me-anything sessions.
- How long is the CUET coaching program at IMS?
We have programs which typically run between 2-9 months depending upon when a student wishes to start the preparation. More details are available on imsindia.com

Our classroom program fees are centre-specific. The IMS LIVE Online program is priced at INR 12,000/- excluding GST while the self-learn program and test series variants can be availed at INR 5,000/- and INR 999/- including GST.
