How Standardized Tests Actually Affect Your College Application?
If the vast syllabus in school wasn’t enough, learning about—and retaining—the difference between the various high school exams and standardised testing required for college admissions is a vital part of every college-bound student’s (and parent’s) experience.
The Abbreviation pool of standardised testing, standardised so that every student is evaluated on the same scale, strikes fear in the hearts of students and parents alike. But diligent preparation of coursework and test aspects can negate those butterflies in the stomach.
As early as 8th Grade, you will want to familiarise yourself with the bandwidth and core of each exam, so you can start building a timetable that allows for optimise standardised testing prep well before each test is to be attempted. You’ll also want to take an early look at the admissions requirements of your preferred colleges to make note of the tests they require and the time frame for submitting scores.
We help you with coaching for the below tests at our center (“The Garage” @ Lower Parel). Doubt solving on Skype is also available for students traveling or overseas.
