From the article 13 of The Weirdest College Traditions, here are some strange college traditions that you may encounter this fall if you’re heading off to school.
While your school transcript and ACT or SAT test scores are important, they don’t give a full picture of who you are. College admissions officers are looking for students that will create an incoming class with diverse interests and backgrounds.
At Biltmore Tutoring, we do lots of private tutoring and test prep. However, we have also had great success with our small group SAT and ACT ‘boot camp’ style small group classes.
Biltmore Tutoring’s SAT and ACT boot camps, which have just been announced for the summer of 2018, are affordable, effective, and allow students to prepare for the exam in just five days. These classes will prepare students for the tests which will take place in August through October. All books, practice materials, access to all of our incredibly effective test prep strategies, master’s degree instruction, the use of our student response system, and two free practice tests are included!
Class dates are listed below.
North Carolina’s high school students are now achieving higher scores than the national average on the revamped SAT exam, even though the majority of the state’s seniors are now taking the ACT.
North Carolina’s graduating class of 2017 posted an average score of 1,081 on the new SAT exam – 21 points above the national average of 1,060. The College Board overhauled the exam with changes that lowered the maximum score to 1,600, eliminated obscure vocabulary words, dropped the penalty for guessing and made the essay optional.
