Why take the SAT?
The highest quality prep for standardized tests SAT, ACT, PSAT, GMAT, GRE, and AP exams.
The SAT is the most recognized and respected standardized test in the world. The leading universities in the US use SAT scores more than the scores of any other standardized test to award merit-based and demonstrated need-based scholarships. The exam lasts for 3 ¼ hours (including breaks), and evaluates the student’s abilities in Reading Comprehension/Writing and Math.
The ACT is an alternative to the SAT for US-based universities. The test includes Math, English, Reading, and Science sections. It lasts for 3 ½ hours (including breaks).
The PSAT (Preliminary SAT) is an exam designed to help students in their first and second years of high school prepare for the SAT. Most students take the exam in their own high schools on a predetermined date, although the exam is also offered at the international level. Its structure is similar to that of the SAT.
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a standardized exam used for admission to US-based graduate management / business schools (e.g., MBA programs). The GMAT comprises Quantitative and Verbal sections.
The GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is a standardized test required by many graduate schools in the US. Its objective is to evaluate the student’s verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing, and critical thinking skills.
Advanced Placement (AP) courses allow high school students to complete coursework at the highest academic level, offering them the most complete preparation for university-level coursework. These subjects are highly valued by US-based university admission boards.
What our students say…
Students with the highest SAT scores in Europe
María Pérez de la Llave
I had classes with Ivy League Tutoring professors to get ready for the SAT. It was great to have scheduling flexibility and not to have to waste time commuting to class.
Moreover, I took advantage of my tutor’s tips and strategies to perform my best, both in class and in my English level.
Thanks to , I was able to score 1510, which was enough for me to gain admission to an Ivy League school such as Cornell University.
Mohamed El Tonbari
I wanted to study my major in the United States, but I wasn’t sure how to achieve it. Thanks to the SAT prep I received from Ivy League Tutoring, I was accepted to Princeton, from which I graduated in Operations Research and Financial Engineering.
My 1510 score on the SAT was the key to my admission to Hamilton College in New York. I had intense preparation with Harvard grad tutors to prepare for the SAT and achieve that high score.
America vs Europe
- 73 of the top 200 universities in the world.
- Four-year university programs, instead of three-year.
- Four-year scholarships are in the form of grants (not loans); therefore, students need not pay back awarded funds. Scholarships apply to studies, lodging, and meals.
- Guaranteed work permit (3 years work permit as of now, according to the new Georgetown Appeal).
- ROI (Return on Investment): one of the wisest investments that families can make for the future of their children given that they can reap returns during the three-year work permit period after they complete university.
- Much higher salaries after graduating than in the UK.
- Many more possibilities to pursue a post-graduate degree at one of the world’s leading universities after completing your undergraduate career than if you graduated from a UK-based university.
- Once a student has obtained a master's degree in the US, she is eligible for an extended work permit if her graduate study is in a STEM field.
- There are no longer any available scholarships or loans for European students due to Brexit. Therefore, it is much more expensive to study in the UK than in the US.
- Three-year university programs, instead of four-year
- It is more difficult to gain admission to a world-renowned graduate school in the US from a UK university than it is from a US university given that leading US graduate schools generally give priority to students (both American and international) who have graduated from leading US universities
- The UK has 28 of the top 200 universities in the world, compared to 73 in the US.
- Graduates of UK universities receive, on average, much lower salaries upon graduating than do graduates of US universities.
- It is difficult to obtain work permits in the UK due to Brexit.
