While ACT might be new and unknown territory to others, Uwezo has been successfully delivering ACT training for several years, dating back to our days in the US. Due to their lack of familiarity with ACT, most counsellors push students toward SAT, even when the ACT is a better match for them. Not at Uwezo. We are highly skilled in both SAT and ACT, and we'll help match you with the better test. A note of caution: some will tell you both exams are the same - they are not! While the new SAT has more in common with the ACT, they are still very different tests: science is only in ACT, Math topics are not identical, the essays are miles apart, and reading section needs different techniques in each test, not to mention the more aggressive time factor in ACT.
We didn't stop there. Realizing that Reading Comprehension and Grammar are the two areas that particularly challenge students, we have developed our own tests which give an accurate picture of a student's strengths and weaknesses. In addition to in-class practice by topic and concept - for Math, English, Reading and Science - we insist that students write a minimum of 10 mock exams. By tracking students' performance in each mock, we help them improve with each attempt. This is done through self-analysis and remedial classes as needed.
Utarget™ is a process that helps a student achieve his or her target score which was set right after the diagnostic test. After the student has attempted three mock exams, an analysis will reveal topics and areas where the student needs improvement. We can pinpoint exactly what the remedy is since we have categorized and typed each question on the mocks. After this analysis, any necessary remedial action is taken, and then the student moves on to the next mock exam. This process of Test-Review-Remedy is continued for the remainder of the mock tests, until the student is satisfied. Utarget™ is a focused, guaranteed way to achieve results.
ACT is only one of the components needed for college admissions. The US universities follow a holistic evaluation process that goes beyond academics and aptitude tests.
