How To Prepare for the HSPT - Lynda's Story.
Lynda was a typical eighth grader (13 about to turn 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 Bs. However, Lynda 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 highly-rated private Catholic School.. a school where the students often later get accepted into Ivy League colleges like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, Stanford and more.
So they searched for the best catholic schools rankings, hoping to also help Lynda get accepted to these schools.
They came across our top catholics schools list and noticed three schools that fit what she might be interested in...
Here's where Lynda applied:
Top Catholic Schools near Her City
The Best-ranked school in town for sports and academics.
The Acceptance rates were extremely challenging. How could Lynda gain admission?
After researching these schools, Lynda 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.
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 HSPT examination was one of the most challenging exams one can take before high school.
....So she found our course on the HSPT.
"The world's best HSPT Prep Course" - Are You Serious?
When Lynda's mother, Samantha called our company, she asked two questions: "what are the best catholic schools...?" and "how can you help my daughter increase her HSPT scores." Luckily, we had the answers to the HSPT exam.
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, Lynda struggled on the first HSPT practice exam. When she enrolled in our HSPT prep program, she took more than 7 practice exams before seeing any meaningful increase in her HSPT scores.
Here's an Honest (and Interesting fact) about OUr HSPT prep:
More than 748 students took our HSPT course last year and it took on average more than 2 weeks before students saw a 10% increase in their scores.
Why are we telling you this?
Because our client satisfaction and HSPT exam results are the highest in the industry.
When you get accepted, like Lynda did, to the best Catholic (Archdiocese) schools... because of our HSPT prep, you'll never forget the people and tutors who helped you prepare. That's another fact.
Now here's another fact:
Once Lynda took her HSPT exam, she increased her HSPT to a perfect score!
We'll tell you in a little bit about how she not only was accepted to these Catholic Archdiocese schools, but her current private school even asked her to stick around! The principal said, "We want you to stay and make a difference here." But Lynda knew she had to go. There were better opportunities at other schools.
...And now, you're wondering, how'd she increase her HSPT score significantly?
How'd Lynda increase her HSPT scores?
The simple answer?
Hard work. Amazing HSPT private tutors. Tons of effort on all sides.
But don't listen to us... hear from Lynda and her family...
"After signing up for my HSPT Course, I saw serious results in 3+ weeks. It's not an easy exam, but Top Test Prep made it simple for me."
And now, we'll share some helpful HSPT prep tips for you too...
You Must-Know these Steps to Prepare for Your HSPT Exam:
Step #1: Create a custom study plan and be ready to study 10 hours per week.
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 HSPT exam. You should focus on the HSPT 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.
Having a flexible schedule - i.e. one that balances your core school work with your extracurricular activities (AND) and your HSPT prep is so important. That's why we built our HSPT prep on-demand course. You can watch videos about the HSPT 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 HSPT. 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.
