New Elite Redesigned SAT Practice Test Offered in Fullerton, CA on August 22!

Elite Educational Institute is pleased to announce that a new SAT practice test will be administered at California State University, Fullerton on Saturday, August 22nd.

As a premier test prep institute for the last 28 years, Elite is again leading the way by offering a practice exam specifically designed to prepare students for the newly redesigned SAT. Co-hosted by The Korea Times and Radio Seoul, this mock test will offer students in grades 7-11 the opportunity to gauge their academic readiness for the redesigned SAT, which will debut in March 2016 and impact students in the class of 2017 and younger.

This new practice exam will give students the chance to take the exam in an authentic testing environment (CSUF is an official SAT testing center) and help students pinpoint specific subject areas in which they can improve. Elite’s Curriculum Department has painstakingly crafted questions and selected reading passages in alignment with the College Board’s calibrations of test format and difficulty level. Mr. Phil Mann, Elite’s Head of Curriculum, will lead a workshop at the Korea Times College Expo on the following Saturday, August 29th, offering solutions to this new practice exam.
 
Participating students will also be automatically entered in the IAC (International Academic Competition), and top performers will be awarded certificates of merit and scholarships, which will positively affect their college application.
 
The practice test is also recommended for students in junior high, since the redesigned PSAT will be offered in varying forms for students of different ages (i.e. PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10, PSAT/NMSQT). Practice test results may also help predict success on the redesigned PSAT, to be offered for the first time on October 14th, 2015.

To reserve a seat for this practice test, register online at www.eliteprep.com/newsat. Only 900 seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
