The SAT School: April 24-28, Bucharest

Or How to Ace the SAT & Plan Your Smart U.S. App.



Can the SAT Help You Stand Out in the Pool of Applicants at Top U.S. Universities?

CollegeBoard, the organization that offers the SAT internationally, has worked to make the SAT Reasoning a better, more useful exam. So, a year ago, they launched the redesigned SAT Reasoning test.

According to the CollegeBoard, “the redesigned SAT test prioritizes content that reflects the kind of reading and math students will encounter in college and their future work lives.” But a better test comes with new challenges.

We first had a Romanian student who scored a perfect 800 score in the Reading section some 13 years ago and the perfect score continues to visits us every year or so. Interested in scoring high? In our experience, the key to success is within your grasp: standardized test success relies on using the right strategies.

During the SAT School, we will provide you with the tools that will help you ace the SAT Reasoning test, prep for the SAT Subject tests, find the right score to aim for, and smartly integrate your standardized tests in your successful application.

Comprehensive strategy. Stress-free environment conducive to learning. Experiential learning. Interactive teaching. Teamwork. On the big day we want you to walk confidently into the test room and spend the next four hours giving the test your best. You can do it. And EDMERICA can help.

This intensive training program is for you…

…if you’re in high school – with a focus on those in grades 10 and 11 – or a recent graduate and currently planning your application process to universities abroad. U.S. schools typically require the SATs for admissions, but some schools in Europe also value SAT Subject scores.

The SAT School will help you:

  • Experiment with the tests to discover what’s new and exciting about them as compared to other tests and the Romanian educational system;
  • Learn strategies and tips for testing success;
  • Get hands-on testing experience;
  • Learn to thrive on novelty and change;
  • Turn the tests to your advantage;
  • Dream big and plan your application accordingly!

The SAT School will also provide you with informed answers to key questions:

  • What makes for a great score and how can you get it?
  • Can you score high in the Math section (even if you’re on a Philology track)?
  • What does it take for a Romanian student to get 800 points (the maximum) in the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing test?
  • How can a high SAT score increase chances of admission to U.S. universities and to financial support?

Learn what the participants in last year’s SAT School liked best about the program:

“It was very helpful for me. We discussed every part of the process, from application to SAT 1, SAT 2, language tests, scores, essay and a lot of great details that are very important for us to realize our dream of going to the USA.” (Sandra, Ramnicu Valcea)

“I think that knowing all the different steps of applying to an American university was the most helpful topic because that now I am certain that by doing my best I can get into the university I like.” (Patricia, Bucharest)

“The SAT essay and (discussing) the whole application process and where does the SAT stand.” (Irina, Bucharest)

About discussing SAT sample materials: “It was very helpful because it was the only way to understand what the exam is like and what we have to work on.” (Victor, Tulcea)

“Given the fact that I knew absolutely nothing about the SATs, everything we discussed here was helpful to me. Also, I am glad we talked about universities and colleges although this was an SAT School, since I didn’t know much about those either.” (Andrada, Bucharest)
