The SAT is the new Psychometric!!

Whether you want to study in Israel or abroad – the SAT exam, administered by the American College Board, is an excellent and popular alternative to the psychometric exam. The psychometric exam is known to be extremely difficult, with expensive preparation and many administrative limitations.

An alternative exam is now available – the SAT exam.

We invite you to a consultation and a trial lesson free of charge or obligation!

What is the SAT exam?

The SAT exam is the equivalent of the psychometric exam in Israel, except that it is accepted *both in Israel and in universities around the world*. It tests your English verbal and quantitative skills.

This is the structure of the SAT exam:

The SAT assesses your verbal and math abilities. The verbal component tests your skills in syntax, grammar, reading comprehension and vocabulary. Both components are scored on a scale of up to 800 points, with the maximum score being 1600. The test itself has ten sections.

The math section is easier on the SAT than on the psychometric!

This is significant for a lot of people, and especially for those who need to get a high grade in mathematics in order to be admitted to the studies of the profession they want. Many universities give more weight to the math section, for example: 2/3 weighted math average versus 1/3 weighted verbal average.

The SAT test in Israel is held on Sundays seven times a year in Herzliya, Even Yehuda and Jerusalem.
