How To Prepare for the SSAT - Sarah's Story.
Sarah was a typical eighth grader (14 years old). She went to a decent private school in a suburb of a large city and was always above average, even scoring mostly As and B+ (at the very least). However, Sarah was always seeking new challenges, and she - and her parents - wanted her to get into the best colleges someday.
Her parents, perhaps just like you, could luckily afford to send their daughter to a top-notch boarding school... a school where the students often later get accepted into Ivy League colleges like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell and more.
So they searched for the best boarding schools rankings, hoping to also help Sarah get accepted to these schools.
They came across our top boarding schools list and noticed three schools that fit what she might be interested in...
Here's where Sarah applied to the Best Boarding Schools:
and the Lawrenceville School.
The Acceptance rates at top boarding schools in America are extremely difficult. How could Sarah gain admission?
After researching these schools, Sarah realized that in order to get accepted, she would likely have to score in the top 10% percentile, meaning she would have to beat more than 90% of the applicants who applied to top boarding schools in the USA.
Could she do it?
However, she had less than 60 days to prepare and the test seemed infinitely difficult.
...But there had to be a better way than just buying some test prep books online and hoping to study on her own.
Even if she had the motivation, intelligence, and drive to succeed, the SSAT examination was one of the most challenging exams one can take before high school.
....So she found our course on the SSAT.
"The world's Best SSAT Prep Course" - Are You Serious?
When Sarah's mother, Lily called our prep company, she asked two questions: "what's the typical score improvement for your SSAT prep?" and, "how good are your tutors?"
Ok, so you're wondering... of course, this is the part where you tell us how great your program is and how within X days she got an 100% increase in her score.... wrong!
In fact, Sarah struggled on the first SSAT practice exam. When she enrolled in our SSAT prep program, she took more than 7 practice exams before seeing any meaningful increase in her SSAT scores.
Here's an Honest (and Interesting fact) about OUr SSAT prep:
More than 1,240 students took our SSAT course last year and it took on average more than 3 weeks before students saw a 10% increase in their scores.
Why are we telling you this?
Because our client satisfaction and SSAT results are the highest in the industry.
When you get accepted, like Sarah did, to the best boarding schools... because of our SSAT prep, you'll never forget the people and tutors who helped you prepare. That's another fact.
Now here's another fact:
Once Sarah took her SSAT exam, she increased her SSAT verbal score by more than 180 points and her SSAT math score by more than 280 points. Sarah scored in the top 1% on the SSAT exam after one try!
We'll tell you in a little bit about how she not only was accepted to these boarding schools, but her current private school even asked her to stick around! The principal said, "They didn't want her to leave."
...And now, you're wondering, how'd she increase her SSAT score significantly?
How'd Sarah increase her SSAT score to the Top 1%?
The simple answer?
Hard work. Amazing SSAT exam tutors. Tons of effort on all sides.
Here was Sarah's SSAT exam schedule after signing up for our SSAT prep course:
5 hours per week, SSAT Math, Verbal Prep (180 questions per week).
2 hours per week with Top Test Prep's SSAT tutor.
1 hour per week, SSAT Practice Essay Writing.
All very doable by anyone, including you.
But don't listen to us... hear from Sarah and her family...
"After signing up for my SSAT prep course with Top Test Prep, I was able to complete almost all of my lessons, met an amazing tutor with whom I worked, and within a few weeks was scoring much higher. The course gave me the confidence to succeed on the SSAT. And for that, I'm thankful."
And now, we'll share some helpful SSAT prep tips for you too...
You Must-Know these Steps to Prepare for Your SSAT Exam:
Step #1: Create a custom study plan for your ssat exam.
Having a custom study plan makes all the difference. Whether we help you or not, make sure you're studying at least 2 to 5 hours per week leading up to the actual SSAT exam. You should focus on the SSAT questions that are easiest first and then gradually increase in difficulty until you can handle beginner, intermediate and advanced questions with ease.
Step #2: set a flexible schedule that works to get accepted to the best boarding schools.
Having a flexible schedule - i.e. one that balances your core school work with your extracurricular activities (AND) and your SSAT prep is so important. That's why we built our SSAT prep on-demand course. You can watch videos about the SSAT and prepare anytime you need...
Step #3: Set a goal to achieve every two weeks. And don't break it.
Every two weeks, you should accomplish something new on the SSAT. Perhaps it's understand more complex word problems, or even being able to read verbal passages 10 seconds faster. Whatever your goal - small or big - achieve it by setting goals and reaching them.
