Results of Crimson Education Students in 2019-20 University Admissions

The results are in, and we are ecstatic to report that Crimson students in the 2019-2020 application round have recorded another year of outstanding results. If you thought our record breaking results from last-year were great, this year’s results have set the bar even higher.

This year our students, supported by their dedicated, personalized teams of strategists, mentors and tutors, have been busy achieving outstanding grades, sitting standardised tests, participating in extracurricular activities, preparing essays or personal statements, preparing for interviews, and college sports recruitment.

Ultimately their hard work has paid off, and they have been admitted to hundreds of universities such as Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Oxford, Cambridge, Yale, Princeton, Berkeley, UCLA and more. With the backdrop of admission rates as low as 4.7% for some of these highly competitive universities, the achievements of the Crimson students are even more remarkable.

Over the past six years, Crimson’s dedication to identifying ‘best fit’ universities for all students has resulted in 1440+ offers to US top 50 universities including 268 offers to the Ivy League. Our students have also received 600+ offers to UK top 10 universities, 99 of those to Oxford or Cambridge.
