The SAT, or Scholastic Aptitude Test, is widely used for college admissions in the United States. If you are considering doing undergraduate study in the US, you are most likely aware that this will give you an advantage in your application. While submitting an SAT score is no longer compulsory for some colleges, having a high SAT score can increase your chances of being accepted into your desired university.
(Since 1999, we’ve been helping students average scores in the top 4% range.)

Preparing for Your SAT
How much time you’ll need to prepare for the test depends on how much time you have and how ready you are to attempt its questions. You may try to search for practice questions online. Since the test has transitioned to be taken digitally, preparation for it has been made easier, especially for international students as prep content can be easily accessed on the computer. The SAT consists of 2 sections: Reading and Writing, and Math. In the Math component, as of 2023, both components are allowed calculator use.
The key to getting top scores is speed and accuracy. This means that you will have to quickly understand what the questions are asking for and determine the correct answer. This takes hours of practice, with some students spending more time preparing for one section over the other. Many students who come to us tend to require more practice in the Reading and Writing sections.
To find out how much preparation you will need to ace the test, a diagnostic test can help you. This may be a condensed version of the actual test and gives you an idea of the test format and requirements.
