Test Preparation


Prepare for
University Admission

It can be overwhelming to stay up to date with all the different university entry requirements. Depending on their school curriculum, grades, university of choice and selected degree, students may need to complete certain exams prior to receiving an unconditional offer. Our counselling teams along with our partners ensure that students have all the necessary information and preparation ahead of time and that they are ready to ace any test.


We help our students prepare for standardise tests such as SAT or ACT, manage their time during the test, and get the best possible score.


Between the excitement of transitioning to university and the various tests that need to be completed, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. We’re here to help students navigate, prepare and breeze through their admissions exams.



Depending on various factors, some students might have to pass a language proficiency test such as TOEFL or IELTS. With the guidance of our counsellors and partners, we support students and their families to understand the different exams and their requirements, prepare for the tests, and get the desired score.
