August 2016

The SAT Exams is widely used for College and University admissions, and is highly relevant for your future success. SAT measures literacy and writing skills that are needed for academic success. The SAT includes two sections: English and Math. Additionally there is also an optional essay. These SAT scores are used by more than 4,000 undergraduate programs, and is held six times a year in India, in the months of October, November, December, January, May, and June. The test is administered under 3 hours and 50 minutes. Some guidelines on how you can score higher on the SAT are:

Begin your SAT test prep with a diagnostic test, you will know exactly what to expect on test day.. A diagnostic test will help you know the sections you’re good at and what areas you need work on. After the test, make note of the questions you answered incorrect. Start a study plan, you should know what, when, and how you’re going to study. Sticking to your plan will help you score high in the SAT. The most important step in scoring high on the SAT is preparing yourself to sit for the duration of the test. One way you can prepare for test is by practicing tests of similar duration in a similar setting.

Critical Reading

  • Reading the passage strategically will help you find the correct answer
  • Focus on the topic and purpose of the passage
  • Keep track of the different people and their opinions in the passage
  • Understand the question before eliminating answer choices
  • Predict an answer BEFORE you look at the answer choices
  • For long passages, read the passage first, and then answer the questions. For short passages, read the question first, and then the passage
  • Manage your time, if you find yourself spending too much time on a particular question, move on to the next one. You can always come back to question if you have the time later
  • The new SAT does not penalise for wrong answers. If you are unsure of an answer, make an educated guess, ruling out an option or two will improve your chances of selecting the right answer

Writing and Language

  • Do not begin by reading the entire passage—instead, read the first question and know what you need to answer
  • Take the tone of the passage into consideration, improve on making the passage more concise
  • For graph related questions, check if the statement matches the data given
  • Revise your grammar rules, this will prevent you from selecting the wrong answer choice
  • When more than one choice seems to work well grammatically, work towards shorter choices to eliminate wordiness
  • Know your punctuation, questions on the Writing & Language section will test you on this

Math

  • Mark up geometry diagrams. Keeping track of your work directly on the page will help you avoid careless mistakes
  • Look at the information provided in the question and the answer choices
  • When you eliminate an answer cross it out! Don’t let it confuse you
  • Check to make sure that you answered the specific question that was asked.
  • Translate the words in the question into math so that you can solve more easily.
  • Know the difference between values, ratios, and percents
  • Find common shapes on the SAT to help you break complex figures into simple polygons. Look in particular for triangles!
  • Be on the lookout for common trap answers on the SAT. This includes oddball answers and answers that are too small or too big.
  • You may be more familiar with some concepts than others. Take some time out to work on your weaknesses
  • Practice your concepts regularly

Essay

  • Include an introduction and a conclusion
  • Use effective language and word choice
  • Only use information from the passage
  • Make use of the author’s examples and direct quotes in your essay
  • Ensure that you clearly explain how the author builds the argument
  • Stay clear of giving your opinion, avoid “I ”and “You”
  • Ensure that your handwriting is neat

Why IELTS is required?

edwise-logo

August2016

Anyone who wishes to work overseas or study abroad may have to give the IELTS at some point. Many institutions and organisations rely on the IELTS to select the right people. It is the most widely accepted English language test that uses a one-on- one speaking test to assess your English communication skills. The International English Language Testing System, evaluates the language ability of candidates that need to study or work, where English is the language of communication. This test is also approved by UK Visas and Immigration for customers applying both outside and inside the UK as well as for immigration to Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

There are two modules to the IELTS- Academic and General. IELTS Academic is for those who wish to seek admission to higher educational institutes or for professionals who want to study or practise in an English speaking country. Some universities in Non English speaking countries also require the IELTS, since English is the language of instruction. The General training is for those who intend on studying at below degree level and for immigration purposes

IELTS avoids cultural biases, and ensures that all test takers are treated fair, regardless of any special needs that they may have. However, a medical certificate has to be issued within the last two years at the time of registering for the exam. The test consists of questions that are relevant to how people need to use English in their studies or work. In terms of spelling, grammar and choice of words, IELTS covers both British English and American English. Whether it is studying in the US, UK or another English-speaking country, IELTS gives you the chance to train your ear to different native English accents.

Scored on a nine-band scale, no minimum score is required to pass the test, each institution sets a different threshold, where each band corresponds to a specified competence in English. Institutions will not consider a report older than two years to be valid, unless the user has worked to maintain their level. The IELTS has administered over a million tests, making it the world’s most popular English language test for higher education and immigration. The convenient dates and locations in over 140 countries provide a range of options on where to take the test. You can also choose to book your tests with the flexible payment options available online. The results for these test scores are available online within just 13 days of your exam date.

What Edwise Students studying Say…

“I am very thankful to Edwise for helping me score an 8.0 band in my IELTS. I joined the IELTS classes with a lot of apprehensions. But from the first class itself I felt extremely comfortable. The faculty here has provided me with personal training and this has helped me clear my examination with flying colors. I would once again like to thank the entire staff of Edwise who helped my dream come true.”
Shruti Preman – IELTS Coaching

“My experience with Edwise coaching was very good! I started coaching with 5 other students and with no appropriate knowledge or idea about IELTS, its procedures and protocols. My faculty was a boon to us by giving us not only the thorough insight of the IELTS, but made it a fun process for us. To me personally, I couldn’t have expected a better teacher for it. The faculty at Edwise not just makes us feel involved, but gives us a good support especially in disciplines that we lack in. The teaching pedagogy at Edwise helps us find our strengths and weakness & ace the exams. The job and concern not just ends after IELTS, but also follows up with us on our exam and our results.”
Vizak Gagrat -IELTS Coaching

“After enrolling in Edwise I felt that I am at the right place to pursue further higher education, because the knowledge and the guidance given by the faculty here gave me a positive look towards my goal.

Benefits of studying in the Best of SINGAPORE Colleges and Universities

1) You can get a scholarship.

It’s not exactly surprising that “The World’s Greatest City,” is also the “World’s Most Expensive” one, as recently determined by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). But don’t let this deter you from pursuing your higher educational dream of studying in this extraordinary location. Tuition fees are less than many other Asian nations, and scholarships, grants and fellowships abound for international students who know where to look. These include the following:

The Singapore Scholarship of the Embassy of the Republic of Singapore: This merit- based scholarship program offers support to government-endorsed students from ASEAN member countries enrolled in full-time undergraduate degree programs at the Nanyang Technological University, the National University of Singapore and the Singapore Management University in all fields except medicine, dentistry, architecture and law.

2) You will study in one of the best education systems in the world.

Your future is already bright, but a Singaporean education offers even greater gleam. While the entire continent of Asia is heralded as a rising star in the world of international higher education, Singapore is outpacing the rest in establishing itself as a force to be reckoned with thanks to dogged government initiatives focused on the importance of educational innovation — not only in terms of acquiring superpower status, but also specifically — and uniquely — as it pertains to the country’s own economy. Grads of Singaporean higher educational institutions are primed and ready to conquer the ever-evolving global economy as well as their own local one thanks to a shared vision, explicitly defined outcomes as well as strategies toward their achievement.

3) You will assure yourself a degree highly renowned by employers.

Singapore was ranked as one of QS’s top three “Best Student Cities” in 2013 for a multitude of reasons. Of course, there is its extraordinary reputation as an epicenter for higher education, research and innovation thanks to a combination of government imperatives, top-ranked universities, a collaborative spirit and a magnificent quality of life.

Because of Singapore’s renowned superiority in the field of education, employers increasingly seek out its grads — both in Asia and across the globe. Both NUS and Nanyang Technological University score higher in the QS World University rankings, due in no small part to their ability to attract top students and faculty from all over the world. The city’s commitment to educational imperatives makes it one of the world’s most desirable spots for students — not only because of the education they receive while there, but also because of the many doors opened by a Singaporean degree.

4) You will experience a student life like no other.

a. Safety Matters
Aside from the fact that Singapore is a diverse, beautiful and vibrant place to live, it also excels in terms of safety. Strict laws and correspondingly low crime rates mean that city streets and public transportation methods are exceptionally safe.

b. Diversity Abounds
Diversity isn’t just accepted in Singapore, it is abundantly welcomed.

c. Anytime, Anywhere
If action is your endgame, then there’s no place quite like Singapore. The city is alive with people and activities throughout the day and well into evening.

d. You Pay for What You Get

5) English Abounds

While Singapore may seem like a far-off destination, international students quickly acclimate to life here thanks to its four official languages, and the remarkable prevalence of English — spoken by a full 75 percent of its population. In fact, English is Singapore’s official educational language.

  • The competition to study in Singapore is fierce thanks to a recent cap placed on foreign enrollment by the government in order to ensure places for nationals. To get the best chance at acceptance, you will need a high IELTS/TOEFL score.
  • Once accepted to a university, you have just two weeks to apply online for a Student’s Pass after which you will receive an in-principle approval letter. Keep this letter handy: it incorporates your visa and is necessary to pass through security checkpoints. Upon arrival, you will be screened for TB and HIV. A clean bill of health is required before you can be issued a student pass.
  • Tuition fees range widely depending on the institution and your course of study. While education is not cheap, it is still less than many other Asian countries. Many international students receive tuition grants to help offset the cost.
  • Finding an affordable place to live can be a challenge. The housing office of your admitting university is a valuable partner in this process. Additionally, arranging for short-term hostel accommodations in advance can save you stress upon arrival.
  • Students hoping to work while in Singapore can take on 16 hours of part-time work and full-time work between terms without a work permit.

Strategies for SAT- Quant

edwise-logo

July 2016

In addition to Problem Solving, Data Analysis and Geometry, the new redesigned SAT includes several questions from areas of Trigonometry and arithmetic of complex numbers. Some questions allow the use of a calculator; on others the use of calculator is not permitted.

Tips for Math Questions

  • Write down what you know and show your steps. Mark up diagrams, write equations, so you can re check your solution
  • Pay attention to the simple patterns in a problem. Trying to figure out these patterns is the key to the solution
  • Look for an easy way, by over calculating a simple math problem; you may miss out on a key factor that simplifies the problem.
  • Know your formulas, so you know where you need to use them
  • Check your work, go over your arithmetic and algebraic solutions to avoid careless mistakes
  • If you find yourself stuck on a particular math question, try working on the options or plug in numbers for the unknown
  • Ensure that you read the question properly, pay attention to words like integer, even, odd and consecutive as they are commonly overlooked. Make sure you don’t confuse area with perimeter
  • Do not overuse your calculator. If you are using the calculator for a lot of problems, you’re probably making it hard. Keep it simple, and only use the calculator as a check
  • Re-read your question before finalizing your answer. Make sure that you have answered the right question
  • Note any restrictions on the unknowns. For instance, whether it is a positive or a negative integer, a decimal or restriction on dimension. Underline key restrictions
  • Know the definitions of special terms such as primes, integers, factors, multiples, perimeter and so on
  • A product is the result of a multiplication. Do not confuse it with a sum, which is the result of addition
  • Break down complicated problems into simpler ones. If you are given a geometry diagram, mark up the angles and sides when you can find them. If given an algebraic expressions, notice how they relate to one another
  • Once you see parts of a problem, look for simple relationships between them
  • If you can’t find what you need, look at one part of the problem at a time. Going through the problem step by step will eventually lead you to the answer
  • Simplify by substituting, in algebra, anything can be substituted for its equal. If you notice a complicated expression on the SAT, check to see if it equals something simpler and substitute
  • Simplify by combining and cancelling, in many algebraic expressions always keep a check on like terms that can be combined or cancelled and for common factors in fractions that can be cancelled
  • Check by estimating, an approximate answer can help you narrow down the choices quickly
  • Use logical solutions wherever possible. For e.g., patterns for indices, multiplication of numbers etc
