How to prepare UK students for US universities
UK students planning to apply to US universities need to prepare for the admissions process by passing all of their A Levels, maintaining excellent grades throughout their academic career, participating in extracurricular activities or part-time work, receiving letters of recommendations, writing a personal essay, and passing the ACT with a high score.
What is the ACT?
The ACT is a multiple choice test used in US college admissions. It is a 4-part test comprised of English, Reading, Maths, and Science. Each section of the test is scored from 1-36, and the scores are averaged to make up a composite score of 1-36. Students may take the ACT as many times as they like, but we recommend they take it at most 3 times after receiving ACT tutoring in London.
The higher the ACT score, the higher the likelihood is of being accepted into top universities, receiving scholarships, grants, and fellowships. This is why many families choose A-List Education UK to help their students with ACT tutoring in London.
How ACT tutoring in London works
We believe students should begin ACT tutoring in London 2 to 6 months before their first test, and spend around 1 to 2 hours with their tutor per week. They should also plan to spend time studying at home.
Our team can break the test down by sections and questions depending on the student’s strengths and weaknesses. We make sure students feel comfortable with the timing of each section, and learn how to approach difficult questions efficiently.
For our ACT tutoring in London, we provide students with the option to engage in private tuition, Bootcamps, or a combination of both. We also think it’s important students take the ACT twice, if they do not receive their target score during their first sitting.
