Diagnostic Test

We start with an ACT vs SAT Diagnostic Test to find the best-suited test for the student. The test is conducted in both offline and online mediums.



Upon evaluation of the diagnostic test the most fitting standardized test is determined. The assessment is based on multiple factors such as:



Once the evaluation is done, keeping the key factors in mind, we initiate the test preparation. We begin with the course at a frequency of 3 classes per week. We practice topic-wise drills to cover conceptual gaps, if any.



We engage the students in Sectional practice, covering all the topics and concepts from the section after the syllabus is covered. Herein, we work on the tips and tricks and time management.


Full-Length Testing

This is done before or around a month before the student’s actual test. The weekends are occupied for Full-length Test (FLTs) and Live Reviews. The FLT is done on our testing platform that is an exact replica of the ACT.



If the 1st attempt at the actual test doesn’t bear the score predicted, sectional testing cycles and full-length testing cycles are exhaustively instated for another attempt. If required, we give booster sessions to revise crucial topics along with the practice cycle.

The writing section, though optional, is an essential element of the ACT. Many Indian students opt out of the essay due to its optional nature; however, taking the ACT Writing test is highly advisable. Many universities and colleges abroad prefer the essay score to the ACT score.

The ACT writing is an argumentative essay that requires the candidate to analyze a core issue by evaluating three given perspectives. The candidate is scored based on the following four elements: Ideas and Analysis, Development and Support, Organization, and Language Use.

The essay is scored out of 12. A score of 8 and above is generally considered a good score. However, the ACT essay score is not counted in your ACT composite score.
