What you’ll learn

Students are introduced to the SAT 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.

We begin our prep with a Diagnostic Test. This is a full SAT Test, conducted under supervision. The idea of this Test is for us to understand each students’ strengths and weaknesses. Students are also introduced to the Test format for the first time. The Diagnostic Test score gives us both a base score upon which we can build and work towards the ideal score.

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

Since the Test is for 4 hours, Students need to build the stamina required to stay focussed for the entire length of the Test. We conduct a series of Tests in the last 5 weeks so that they are working at their full potential on the day of the SAT.
