North Central Sylvan Learning of San Antonio Offers Free SAT and ACT Practice Tests Over Presidents’ Day Weekend
Jan 14, 2017
Exams will Help Students Assess Readiness and Prepare for Spring Test Dates
[San Antonio] January 17 —For students, getting accepted into the top college of their choice is harder than ever before. To help students get an edge in this competitive process, North Central Sylvan Learning of San Antonio will be offering free SAT and ACT practice tests from 9 am- 1 pm on Saturday, February 18th and Monday February 20th, 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 this spring.
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. Getting students to practice as early – and as often – as possible is the first step to get them to succeed.
“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 Prep 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 spring test dates.
There is a limited amount of space available for this FREE test. Call (210) 494-4357 to reserve your spot!
