SAT Test Prep Course

SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities
to make admission decisions


The idea (in theory, at least) is to provide colleges with one common criterion that can be used to compare all applicants. However, it is just one factor in the admissions decision. Schools also consider your high school GPA, academic transcript, letters of recommendation, interviews and personal essays. The weight placed on SAT scores varies from school to school. For more specific information on the importance of SAT scores for the schools you’re interested in, contact the admission office directly.

We are here to help you to prepare for the SAT Exam. Here is the list of various prep classes offered related to SAT exam.
