Jan. 3, 2012 - PRLog -- New Delhi, January 3rd, 2012 - Dehradun prodigy pushes the bar with an extraordinary SAT score of 2390/2400! Priyanka Sethy, a student of Brightlands School became the second highest scoring SAT applicant ever, with 2390: an achievement witnessed once in few years. The Princeton Review which runs test preparation classes in a leading school at Dehradun was instrumental in this success by privately tutoring Priyanka since she belonged to a separate school. Moreover, Princeton Review teachers especially travelled to Dehradun to coach Priyanka at her home and left no stone unturned in ensuring her success.
Today, the SAT is the benchmark standardized assessment of the critical reading, mathematical reasoning, and writing skills of a student. Each year, more than two million students take the SAT and nearly every college in America uses the test as a common and objective scale for evaluating a student's college readiness. While Indian students are known to perform exceedingly well in competitive exams, the SAT is high on reasoning and full of traps and distracting answer options. A top 5% performing in school exams is also not guaranteed a high SAT score, he has to work for it. SAT, a test of developed skills in English and Math is an American test and Indian students really need to adapt their understanding and application of English and Math. Reflecting upon the phenomenal success of SAT students tutored by Princeton Review faculty, Monisha Banerjee, VP Academics, Princeton Review said, “The SAT is unlike any other entrance test and we get students from some of the best schools in India with aspirations of getting into top 1% universities in the United States. To meet their expectations, The Princeton Review, works with every individual student in tapping his/her potential as we know a slight difference in the SAT score makes a lot of difference to a student’s applications”.
Contrary to most entrance tests taken by school students in India, it is very difficult for Indian test preparation organisations to understand the intricacies of the SAT and develop effective pedagogy and practice content. Further, training regular IIT JEE teachers to prepare students for a test like the SAT itself requires expertise and specialised know-how. This is why international organisations like The Princeton Review are trusted the most by schools, students and parents alike, for SAT preparation.

With access to quality test preparation, application and essay writing support from admission counselling organisations, more Indian students are now able to meet the admission criteria of renowned International Universities. Moreover, increased competition for top Indian colleges, soaring cut-offs, dwindling quality of education imparted by private and public colleges and awareness of study abroad options and benefits, are few of the factors contributing to a large number of students heading overseas. This in-turn has made acceptance of Indian students at International Universities more competitive. Cognizant of this trend, parents and students are working harder than ever to improve SAT scores; an important factor in determining admission and scholarships/financial aid.
