Surviving SAT prep
The SAT is a solid few hours of intensive testing. It takes stamina and a level head to get through it. But what about all that revision that comes before the test? SAT Tutoring in London from A-List Education UK can make all the difference, preventing you from crumbling under the pressure of it all and ensuring you can steadily learn all you need to know to ace the SAT.
At A-List Education we want to make sure you get the best possible start to your university admissions process and that means taking the right approach to your SAT revision. We’ll cover lots of tips and tactics during your SAT Tutoring in London with us but in the meantime here’s some advice to consider:
Strengths and weaknesses
Everyone has different aptitudes. The SAT tests a range of different skills, some of which you are certain to have honed down to a fine art, with others being more challenging. During your revision pay attention to areas where you are struggling and devote more time to these. Have a go at more practice questions, the more familiar you are with the material the less stressed you’ll be when tackling areas that are more challenging. SAT Tutoring in London can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses.
A process of elimination
A key strategy for doing well on the ACT is adopting a process of elimination with the multiple-choice questions. The SAT no longer deducts points if you select an incorrect answer. This means a good guess can significantly up your marks. To improve your chances of guessing right, you’ll need to practice how to identify clearly wrong answers, leaving you with fewer answers to take your pick from when guessing.
Go to bed early
Most certainly the night before your test but even on all those other nights when you’re revising, don’t go to bed late. Your brain is better at committing all you’ve learnt to memory when you get a good night’s rest.
Work your SAT revision into your weekly routine and you’ll steadily make progress. This will help you keep calm as the test date approaches, ensuring you are better able to study.
