While ACT is unfamiliar to most people outside the U.S.A, it is, Nevertheless, a good option for some students. Uwezo has been offering ACT since 2011, and our students have scored up to 35/36 overall. Additionally, our average score has been 30/36 with 60% of students scoring 32/36.
While most institutes simply give both tests to a student to determine which test is better, we at Uwezo have a different, more effective approach. The first phase involves a meeting with the counsellor and answering short questions, both oral and written. If this doesn’t clearly indicate one test over the other, then the second phase involves a Uwezo-customized evaluation exam which will unequivocally answer the question.
ACT is considered somewhat easier, however, the time allocated to each section is much less per question compared to the SAT. Some students are better equipped for one test over the other. Universities accept either test during the application process, and contrary to popular belief, they do not convert a score from one exam to the other.
In addition to experienced teachers and a 10-year track record, there are three unique reasons why you should choose Uwezo Learning for ACT:
This one-of-a-kind application will analyse your mock and generate a detailed report pointing out areas of weakness down to the question-type. So, you will realize that not only you need to focus on “Primary Purpose” questions in Reading, but also that this problem is more acute in Science and Literature based passages. Uwezo will then help you overcome the problem through additional practice and coaching. Learn more about Omar™.

Uwezo Learning’s SAT coaching involves a total of 52 hours of in-class instruction, followed by up to 12 or 15 mocks (Please see Why Uwezo SAT). First, 40 hours are spent on covering SAT English and SAT Math. After 3 mocks are done by all students, another 12 hours (six for Math and six for English) are dedicated to focusing on problem areas as a group, with the help of Omar™. After coaching is complete, practice entails doing 12 to 15 mocks with an average of four hours per mock. Reviews are provided for the mocks to identify areas of improvement and clear doubts.
Uwezo Learning offers Subject SAT training in Math, Physics and Chemistry. While the number of hours of teaching varies by subject, it is about 20-25 hours of classroom instruction followed by several mocks. Like our SAT offering, Subject SAT mocks are also analysed, and a detailed report provided – by using Omar™ – for you to understand areas of weakness. Most of our students score a perfect 800 in Subject SATs, with an average score of 790.
