Timing is an important factor in the taking of these tests. As there are multiple sittings every year, they can be taken at almost any time. However, as entry may be on a certain date, and if you are taking this test in London, then planning can be of great importance. It is recommended that you begin regular preparation for your SAT 2-6 months in advance. The SAT is not a test that can be ‘crammed’ for, and will need steady and consistent preparation to ensure you perform to the best of your ability.
If you are concerned about the speed at which you can revise, or are looking to kickstart your learning process, then SAT tutoring in London will give you a head start in the learning process for each exam by offering bootcamps. Often, these classes are headed by tutors from some of the top universities in the US, who will know the best techniques for each of the exams.
How does environment contribute to learning?
Studies have shown that one’s environment is extremely important in the learning process, so the intensity of bootcamp will ensure that your learning begins the right way. A bootcamp is designed to induce total focus, as you will spend an entire week focused on the SAT surrounded by other students taking the tests and highly experienced tutors.
Will SAT bootcamp improve my score?
Many companies that offer bootcamp courses for the SAT will naturally exaggerate or infer a high level of improvement, some citing a 100 point increase for the SAT. However, these results are often lower than promised, and if the bootcamps are expensive then the promised results may not be legitimate, or worth the money. Bootcamps are instead a fantastic way to boost your own personal learning, and many students will see an increase in their results. An expectation should not be put on the classes, but rather your own personal goal and determination.
Do I need to go to bootcamp in order to get a good score?
Absolutely not. Bootcamp courses are designed to give you guidance and assistance on how to prepare for the test, and to kick start your own preparation in order to get the best results you are capable of. They are not a necessity in any way, and many students may feel like they can spend the time more effectively in their own time. Bootcamp courses are a fantastic option for someone looking to boost their learning process, and who might be unsure about how the test works.
There are often events available in London on specific things needed for an application to a university in the US. This can be things such as personal statement workshops or advice on US universities, such as create programmes, or how to make the most of your experience there.
