Boasting some of the world’s best universities as well as job opportunities, the United States is certainly appealing to youngsters from across the globe. Competition is tight and plentiful, with many international applications received annually, one of the main distinguishing application criteria are the Standard Aptitude Test (SAT) scores. This prep course focuses mainly on the test taking strategies, which will give you the advantage and confidence to take the test or to improve your current score!
Whilst the SAT scores are certainly not the only results that Universities consider when looking at an applicant they certainly make a difference, especially among the more competitive schools where applicants really need to stand out and outperform their peers. The majority of those attaining high scores are those who have prepared substantially in order to succeed.
This SAT prep course will focus on content but more importantly on tried and tested test-taking strategies and methodology, which help augment SAT scores. Increased confidence will translate into success both in the test and in future academic endeavours.
The course will take place for three hours every morning and then campers will join campers from other programmes to enjoy exciting afternoon activities culminating in an educational and memorable camp experience!
