教育大新聞 – SAT 考題方向將有大改變

去年考ACT的考生數字首度超過了考SAT的考生數字! 主辦SAT考試的College Board 公司新上任的執行董事David Coleman日前宣佈將對SAT 考題方向作出重大改革, 未來的SAT 考題方向將趨近於上大學所需的知識及基礎.   不過, College Board 公司倒沒說新的改革什麼時候開始.  在哈佛全方位的SAT/ACT補習教材都是我們自己編寫的, 絕不是買市面上的書來影印發給學生上課用, 所以無論怎麼改, 我們都可以應變, 別擔心喔!此外, ACT考試真的也是一個很好的選擇, 不然為什麼考 ACT 的考生越來越多呢?

  1. Should students prepare both test at same time? Also, my son just got accepted into Troy High School and we would like him to go. If for any reason that we need to transfer him back to his home school, would that hurt his chance of being accepted into top universities or Ivy League schools? He would like to go for engineering schools. Please advice. Thank you ! L. Shih

    • Hi, Lily. Students can prepare for both tests if they have time to do so. As for your 2nd question, pls don’t assume Troy has high Ivy League acceptance rate. Troy high does have better college admission result than other public schools but Ivy League acceptance is, in general, low for all public high schools. Why don’t you come to Ann’s seminar in Cerritos or Walnut this month so you can learn more about the college application game.
