In June this year Option will start its Junior SAT classes for the summer. We invite you to discuss this opportunity with us and to enroll your junior in what we promise is an exciting learning experience that will take him out of his learning box and step up his potential to achieve beyond your expectations!!!
Option was the first institute in India to conceive a training platform- the “Junior SAT” course- that catered to early starters and helped them cultivate real skills for the SAT. We took in 8th and 9th graders and offered them intensive training modules for verbal and math. Many of our little wonders worked with us for 2 summers, took the SAT as early as in the 8th grade, gradually grew up to the test and went on to do summer programs in the US before actually taking their final attempt at the test and securing scores upward of 2300!
This summer Option brings the same opportunity to Dubai. This initiative is inspired by our understanding of where students of grades 11 and 12 stand when they have to take on the SAT at short and sometimes urgent notice! With more than 17 years of very successful training experience, Option has its finger on the pulse of today’s academic pulse. This experience says that despite hard work and long hours of excruciating schedules many last students who aim to acquire the right test skills in the final grades fail to make the competitive mark. This is because the training invariably runs against time and hence proves shallow; it is a brave effort to patch up academic deficiencies but in no way a skill augmentation that can guarantee nailing the test.
If on the other hand, students are equipped early with real skills in reading, vocabulary, grammar and math the impact is holistic. The students are facilitated with their school assignments, begin to use English and math more innovatively and over time find themselves handling the SAT very robustly. There are many advantages of starting early for SAT preparations. The most obvious one is that the whole academic temperament and ideology of the student transforms; competition and the spirit to outdo his own previous record drives the student to strive harder and to finally achieve excellent scores by the 11th grade. This clearly is a great head start and allows each student and his councilor to plan good applications and get the most out of the effort.
