When families think of college admissions requirements one of the first things that comes to mind is competitive standardized test scores. At IvyWise, we realize the importance of these tests and the anxiety they can cause parents and students. We’re here to take the pressure off and ensure students perform at their best on test day.
Every student who works with IvyWise is given a free testing diagnostic for both the SAT and ACT, known as the SAT/ACT Challenge. The diagnostic tests are scored and analyzed by our team to provide each student an individualized assessment of their performance, with recommendations on which test is most appropriate for their abilities and what tutoring services are needed to help them reach their goal scores. This preliminary evaluation ensures efficient use of time and resources.
Test scores don’t just include the SAT or ACT. Colleges also look at AP/IB scores, A-levels, and other exams like the TOEFL, when applicable. IvyWise provides test prep support for all of these exams, ensuring students are maximizing their performance on test day. After taking a diagnostic of these exams, your IvyWise test prep expert will put together an evaluation with information on areas where students need to improve and an appropriate test prep timeline.
