Sylvan Learning Center of East San Antonio Offers Free SAT/ACT Practice Over President's Day Weekend

Jan 17, 2017

[San Antonio] January 17, 2017- For students, getting accepted into the college of their choice is harder than ever before. Test scores matter. Students who practice early – and as often as possible - for the SAT/ACT test see higher test results. To help students get an edge in this competitive process, Sylvan Learning of East San Antonio will be offering free SAT and ACT practice tests, February 18th from 9:00 am- 1:00 pm and February 20th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, perfect timing for students starting to prepare for the April and May exams.
Designed to allow students to recreate test-day conditions, these practice tests, will provide students with the invaluable opportunity to understand what subject areas they need to focus on during their continued test preparation, giving them enough time to get ready for the day when their scores really count.
According to the College Board, only 43 percent of students who took the SAT were deemed academically prepared for college* – a number that has remained virtually unchanged over the years. Additionally, only 26 percent of students who took the ACT met readiness benchmarks in all four subject areas, according to an annual ACT
report **.
“With the spring tests right around the corner, these practice test results will give students the opportunity to build a more effective study plan leading up to the big exam” said Tabatha Sweeney, Senior Director of Sylvan Prep. “Our teachers are here to give each and every student a customizable set of tools and test taking strategies they need to successfully work toward their targeted score and ultimately get into the top college of their choice.”
The Sylvan Center Director will share the practice test results with students and their families, along with a personalized test preparation recommendation, based on the scores, so that students will be able to start working through their weak spots with more than five to nine weeks until the first big exam dates on April 8, 2017 (ACT) and May 6, 2017 (SAT).
There is a limited amount of space available for this FREE test. Call (Center Phone) to reserve your spot!
