College Entrance Exams

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.

IvyWise test prep experts help prepare you for:

— SAT
— ACT
— PSAT
— all SAT Subject Tests
— all AP Exams
— A Levels
— TOEFL

The SAT and ACT are critical components of the college application process, as well as the PSAT. 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, SAT Subject Tests, 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.

On average, students who complete 40 or more hours of tutoring with an IvyWise tutor increase their SAT scores by 200 points, but we have seen committed students raise their scores by as much as 650 points. The average ACT score improvement is 6 points with some IvyWise students increasing their scores by 14 points! Score improvements on SAT Subject tests average 120 points.
