Practice Tests

A few years ago, Newsweek published the results of a study under the headline: TAKING THE SAT IN A CROWDED ROOM MEANS LOWER SCORES. We would amend this, adding that this is mostly true for kids who have not practiced taking tests in rooms full of other kids. For this reason, Archimedes Academics offers diagnostic tests so that students can take an actual exam in the company of other students with proctors, timed sessions, and a perfectly simulated, test-taking environment. We offer practice HSPTs, ISEEs, SATs, and ACTs. We also thoroughly analyze students’ exams, break down students’ strengths and weaknesses, and share results and recommendations for a preparation plan with parents in person.

We’re hosting an in-person practice HSPT on April 13th, 2024 from 10am-1pm.

Spaces are limited, so email [email protected] to register now.
