Standardized tests are one of the most important aspects of the college application process. However, SAT and ACT test scores are not the only factors Admissions Officers consider when assessing your application. One aspect of the application process that many students are unaware of is SAT II (or subject tests) scores.
Due to the way the SAT is evaluated, small improvements in the final exam score can make a big difference in percentile ranking, which can in turn increase the odds of being accepted to your college of choice. Spending time attending preparation classes can pay dividends and have a real impact on future opportunities.
So, what should you look for when searching for the best SAT preparation courses in Dubai?
The best SAT preparation courses in Dubai are not just about repeatedly taking practice tests. Understanding how the scoring works and how to approach each section is an important aspect of preparation if students truly want to improve. In addition, students should seek out instructors who have graduated from the most selective US universities and have proven experience not only in tutoring students but also in increasing their final score on the SAT and ACT. One of the main benefits of ‘coaching’ is that instructors can provide you with an evaluation predicting your improvement on the SAT or ACT, before you even start your preparation courses, and support you accordingly.
Finally, you should also consider whether small groups classes suit your learning style or whether you are more likely to achieve better results with one-on-one tutoring and source your provider accordingly.
