28 MARCH APRIL 2016 As a general rule of thumb college entrance depends 20 on extracurricular activities 35 on GPA and 45 on standardized test scores yet the allocation of study hours is not equitable. Over the course of high school students study about 400-500 hours for extracurricular activities about 4000- 5000 hours to achieve their GPA but only about 4 hours for the ACT or SAT without test preparation says Tewari. To combat the study deficiency for standardized exams Victory Step recommends 40 to 50 hours with the tutor plus 40 to 50 hours of homework to maximize test scores. In order to rack up this number of hours Tewari says that summertime study is pivotal. Teens may have camp sports or summer jobs or they might just want to relax but this 12-week period without school studies and extracurriculars is by far the best time to study for SAT and ACT tests. Tewari first helps students determine if they are best-suited for the ACT or SAT exam then he carefully matches each student to atop-notchtutorwhowillcustom-tailorthestudycurriculumto meet the needs of the individual. Since each student is different it is essential that the study material be personalized so he or she can maximize his or her potential on the exam. Tewari advises students to make test prep studies a priority. Most people think that its the GPA that gets them into their college of choice he says. In actuality colleges put more emphasis on SAT or ACT scores. While the GPA might compare astudenttoanentireschooltheSATscorecomparesthestudent to the entire nation.
