Hi GMAT Experts,

Could you tell the correct usage of "when" in the GMAT sentence correction?

Could you tell why the usage of "when" in the below sentence is wrong?:

it was not almost until 1950 when modern critics and biographers began to seriously consider the literary merits of author's work

Unfortunately, there isn't much help to give here. This one is purely idiomatic. "It wasn't until..." takes "that," and not "when," for not grammatical reason other than convention.
