Best ways to prepare for the SAT
You already know that you have to achieve the best possible score on the SAT in order to have your pick of universities. However, preparation can be overwhelming, especially for overseas students who are not acquainted with this type of admission system.
Luckily, you do not have to undergo this ambitious task by yourself – at A-List Education UK we can help you prepare intensively for your SAT by encouraging you to cultivate your unique skills and capabilities. SAT tutoring in London can either be in person in central London or online through various video platforms. Our aim is to create a flexible and customised curriculum. Students can also take advantage of intensive bootcamps throughout the year.
Cultivate your reading skills
The SAT contains a lot of reading, which makes text comprehension key. Although SAT tutoring in London will provide you with tips, hints, and different methods for addressing reading questions, students are strongly encouraged to do lots of non-fiction or fiction reading when preparing for the SAT. This will enhance their vocabulary and help them get acquainted with literature, which is heavily included in the SAT. A ‘reading brain’ cannot develop overnight, therefore reading from an early stage will help you develop critical thinking and make reading comprehension much easier.
Learn how to do mental math
The SAT does not allow the use of a calculator in all sections of the maths test. Therefore it is essential to be trained in mental math. If you know the answer to simple equations, you will save a lot of time on the day of your test. However, we strongly encourage you to show your work so as not to make unintentional errors. If you don’t know where to start, SAT tutoring in London can help.
Grammar is everything
The verbal section of the SAT consists of many grammar questions. While some of them are essay-related, others depend on your knowledge of basic grammar.
