Test Anxiety, Test Prep

Why The SAT/ACT Is A Numbers Game (Not Just The Math Section Either)

Tagged: , , , ,

Scoring high on the SAT or ACT has more to do with demystifying the test than it does with actual math and English comprehension.

Did you know the test makers create the assessment for students to get problems wrong?

That’s important because there are “rules” to the SAT/ACT to follow that will help you score more points fast.

For example, there are 4 answers to choose from for each question, but did you know that if you’re able to instantly eliminate 2 of the wrong answers your chances of getting the right answer doubles?

1 out of 4 = 25% vs. 2 out of 4 = 50%!

The test taking tips that our tutors teach will help you identify each type of problem so you can knock out 2 wrong answers right away.

Practically the test taking strategies you’ll learn for the SAT/ACT are transferrable to academic subjects. Most of our clients who do test prep with us end up continuing with academic tutoring because they experienced great results and love the tutor they’re working with.

There’s a myth that only “smart” kids who already do well in class are exclusively high achievers on the test, but that’s false. Some students who normally get good grades struggle with test anxiety on the SAT/ACT where as students who have average grades can attain near perfect scores.

The moral of the story is this: once you understand how the test is made, you will score higher.

That’s why working with one of our tutors is so valuable.

The better prepared you are, the higher chance for success you have.

Don’t just study harder, study smarter with us.
