  • 05/23 to 06/12  1 Sessions Anyday 9:00am-10:00pm $0/1:1 Advisory Location: 15320 NW Central Dr. Ste D6 Room 1

    The goal is to familiarize students with the new Digital SAT format and develop an effective SAT test preparation and College Prep plan through a 1:1 meeting.

    Access to a full set of digital SAT tests. Upon signing up, you can immediately access these tests on the "Class Page" through your Sunshine Elite account. You can schedule the tests at your convenience, completing the SAT Math and SAT Reading/Writing sections at different times if you prefer. If you already got your targeted official SAT scores, you may skip this and directly schedule the 1:1 meeting with us.

    Schedule the 1:1 meeting. After completing the SAT tests, you can schedule a personal meeting to discuss your test preparation and college application plan. The link to choose your one-on-one review slot is available on your class page. These review meetings can be conducted either in person or online, based on your preference. In this meeting, we will help you create an effective, personalized college prep plan.

    Introduction to new Digital SAT tests

    The digital SAT is 2 hours and 14 minutes (2 hours and 24 minutes with the break), and it has a total of 98 questions. The test consists of two sections: (1) Reading and Writing and (2) Math. The Reading and Writing section is 64 minutes with 54 questions, and the Math section is 70 minutes with 44 questions.

    Each section is broken up into two modules of equal length. Each Reading and Writing module is 32 minutes long with 27 questions. Each Math module is 35 minutes long with 22 questions. 

    There is a 10-minute break between the Reading and Writing section and the Math section. However, there is not a break between the two modules within each section.

    Below are the main difference that Digital SAT tests than the regular SAT tests:

    • The test is computer adaptive, meaning it adjusts its difficulty based on your performance. How you do in the first module of each section determines the level of difficulty of the questions you see in the second module.
    • The digital SAT is 46 minutes shorter than the paper SAT, and has 56 fewer questions
    • The Reading and Writing sections are combined, and have shorter passages, helping to reduce the number of questions
    • More time is allotted to complete each question
    • You’ll be able to use a calculator for all the math questions…right on your screen!

    While the digital SAT may seem slightly easier, students will still need to study and prep properly beforehand. Let this be a confidence booster for you and help give you some study motivation!

    PSAT 8/9 and PreACT Reading/Writing - A Head Start

    The PSAT 8/9 tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10—in a way that makes sense for eighth and ninth graders. It measures what they’re already learning, shows them whether they’re on track for college, and lets them know where they need the most improvement. That means students have time to tackle these areas long before they take the SAT.

    The PSAT 8/9 helps students determine what they need to work on most so that they’re ready for college when they graduate from high school—and it supports educators as they guide the way.

    PSAT 8/9 Test Prep - Reading/Writing

    Most of the middle schools or high schools ask 8th or 9th graders to take the PSAT 8/9 test in October, This class is for students going to 8th grade or 9th grade to prepare the PSAT 8/9 test. This is also a great class to help students to improve overall comprehensive reading and writing (English usage and grammar part) skills.  The class will help students become familiar with the test and learn the skills and tips for Evidence-Based Reading and Writing.

    This class is also good for PreACT reading/writing preparation. Here is the complete guide information for PSAT 8/9 from College Board: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/pdf/psat-8-9-student-guide.pdf

    Class Materials:
    We will use multiple resources for the class material such as Ivy Global PSAT 8/9 English and other customized materials. All class materials will be provided by e-copy via the class page in your Sunshine account.
