What you will learn

Students are introduced to the PSAT in a personalized environment where class sizes are small. This enables them to work at their own pace and build a rapport with the Teacher as well as other students so that the learning environment is comfortable and conducive.

 

Acquiring the skills

During the first 3 - 4 weeks, Students are introduced to all the different kinds of questions they can expect. They are given plenty of practice so that they are then ready for the next part of the program.

Dealing with time

For the next 4 weeks, students apply the skills within the time constraints for each section of the Test. With intensive practice, they are able to increase their speed without compromising on quality of answers

Building mental and physical stamina

We conduct a series of Tests during the last 5 weeks so that students are working at their full potential on the day of the Test.
