Test Preparations

Standardized testing, entrance exams, GCSEs and A Levels are another step for students on the pathway to university. Some of the common questions on testing are:

  • Will the GCSE/A Level exams suffice for universities across the world?
  • Do I need to take the SAT or the ACT if I apply to American universities?
  • What does it mean when a university announces they are test-optional or test-blind?
  • What should I do to prepare for these exams?

We provide our students with the guidance needed to navigate through testing and highlight their academic strengths. Our in-school curriculum supports students through the GCSEs and A Levels whilst our counselling team is able to advise on standardized testing and potential university entrance exams.

What are the SAT/ACT tests?

The SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) and ACT (American College Testing) are standardized tests widely recognized by colleges and universities in the United States. These tests assess students' knowledge and skills in critical reading, writing, mathematics, and scientific reasoning.
