ENTRANCE TEST PREPARATION

Entrance tests are equally as crucial as the common and supplementary app in the role they play for university admissions. Without meeting the minimum score, applicants will not be considered for further selection rounds. It is a challenge to prepare for specialised tests considering each applicant’s own academic workload at school. Test preparation is instrumental in shortening the Student’s learning curve. QC and mentors provide insider insights, key guidance, content and pedagogy, which are instrumental in order to shorten the learning curve and maximise study efficiency and performance.

Admissions Roadmap

MENTORING OBJECTIVES

Types of Test

US ENTRANCE TESTs

General Tests

The US also Scholastic Assessment Tests (SATs), Advanced Placement (AP) Tests and American College Tests (ACTs). The SATs are scored on scales between 400 and 1600 and the ACTs are scored between 1 and 36.

These exams are designed to test comprehension, critical thinking skills and arithmetic ability.

Mentors will review all components like reading, writing, and mathematics to provide comprehensive coverage for the exam.

Course Specific Tests

In the US, course specific tests typically apply for Masters or Graduate programmes. For instance, an individual hoping to study Law in any US institution will be required to sit the Law School Admission Tests (LSATs). In order to take a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA), one will need to sit the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) and for Medical School, the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).

The QC Commonapps consultation was a great experience that helped me get into my dream universities. The sheer volume of SATs and essays to prepare for (I applied for 7 universities) whilst preparing for exams was not easy. Sean and Dixon were very patient in my SAT I and II preparations. They were able to spot my weaker subjects and went through the tips and tricks of how to score more consistently and avoid the common mistakes. The timed practices were very important in honing exam conditions as well. Was able to score a 1500 with their help.

Getting help from QC and Leslie for my SAT and APs really helped for my university application. The mentors are very experienced, as compared to other agencies ( I had tried another before coming to QC). I was able to improve on my weaker topics through guided and focused practice. The mentors were very patient and professional. They guided me on not just academics but about non-academics and life as well.

Above all, I think the structured yet flexible process in which the preparation was done made the most difference. I covered different parts of the SAT 1 and 2 each week, based on my weakness, and I was also allowed to choose what I would like to cover each week during the practice sessions. There was freedom to decide whether I wanted more management or economics practices, and even specific topics within each SAT subject. This allowed me to focus on improving my weak points, and that was most beneficial. I am very thankful. In fact, I have already recommended my cousin to QE, and she went for interview practice as well.
