How to prepare for the SAT or ACT
Like any exam, the sooner you start preparing for the SAT or ACT entrance exam then the better prepared you will be. Often the best time to start looking into the possibility is over the summer holidays with a view to taking either the ACT in early September or the SAT in early October. However, both the SAT and ACT exams run throughout the year, so NOW is a great time to start working!
The first thing to do is to go to the Fulbright Commission and consider how you might benefit from studying in the USA. The Fulbright Commission has seminars and open days which may help you to decide whether this is the right path for you.
Once you have decided to 'GO FOR IT' you should then read our article on which exam you are best suited to and decide whether to take the SAT or the ACT entrance exam. Remember that there is a New syllabus for the SAT entrance exam for all new students, so take care that you are looking at this redesigned syllabus. If you need help with this decision feel free to contact us for some free advice.
If you are at the end of Year 12 and wish to go straight to University after your A-Levels you will probably need extra help to be prepared in time, so contact us now for some extra tuition.
You must then register, as soon as possible, because in the UK test centres get booked up quickly. This is especially true if you are intending to take the SAT II Subject Tests (required by the more prestigious Universities). When registering be absolutely sure that you register for ALL exams that your chosen Universities require.
