SAT/ACT Prep: Steps to Success
The decision process in applying to the U.S. for post-secondary education almost always involves taking the SAT or ACT as a standardized test for admissions. At Options Solutions, not only do we help you plan a schedule and get you organized for the entire application, but we also offer workshops to prepare you to be as successful as possible on the SAT and ACT exams.
We have the following SAT/ACT exam prep options this winter/spring:
1) Full Length SAT or ACT Practice Exams with Debriefs.
2) Groups Sessions in test-taking strategies, reading, vocabulary, math, writing, essay and science (for the ACT). These occur once a week on Tuesdays from 5-7 in our West Vancouver office.
3) SAT and ACT Super Weekends. These occur one or two weekends a month in both our West Vancouver and Vancouver locations.
4) Individual Sessions.
How do you choose?
Step 1: Take a full length SAT or ACT Practice Exam in February, March, April or May. Get a full debrief of your results and performance and identify sections or areas that need improvement.
Step 2: Join a number of 2-hour Group Sessions focusing on the areas that you could improve with intensive workshop training: test-taking strategies, writing/grammar, reading, vocabulary building, SAT math, ACT math, essay writing or ACT science.
a) Super Weeks are offered to give you 3 sessions (Tuesday for writing/grammar, Wednesday for math, and Thursday for final review) before your write the College Board scheduled May 5th or June 2nd SAT exams or the June 9th ACT exam.
b) If you would prefer to take a concentrated exam prep workshop that delivers 4 sessions in one weekend, then the SAT or ACT Super Weekends are for you. Over a Saturday and Sunday, you receive two sessions of training each day from 9 am – 12pm and 1pm to 4pm with a one-hour lunch break in between. These Super Weekends are also designed to give you the preparation you require to take the May or June SAT exams or the June ACT exam.
c) Individual Sessions are also available for booking where you will receive one-on-one prep time and personalized test debriefing with an Options Solutions consultant.
Step 3: Now, that you’ve taken the necessary sessions that suit you best, you are ready to write the SAT or ACT exam. Registration for Canadian applicants for the May 5th SAT exam is April 6th, for June 2nd SAT exam is May 8th, and for the June 9th ACT exams is May 4th. But remember to register early, as the Vancouver area has a higher demand for seats than it actually has.
