U.S Admissions Testing

Our Tutoring Programs

In order for a university to consider international students for acceptance, they must have high scores on the university-required standardized admissions tests like ACT, TOEFL, IELTS, etc.

Our expert tutors will teach you everything you need to know to master the content, strategies, and mindset necessary to help you achieve the highest scores possible on your test.

The ACT

The ACT is an exam required by most US universities to gain admissions. The ACT measures the knowledge you gained in high school, and the maximum score is a 36. Individual universities decide what minimum score to accept, but elite universities often demand high scores (33 points or above). We recommend a score of 25 points or higher for less competitive universities, and 28 points or higher for moderately selective universities.

Students in the United States spend a lot of time and money preparing for these exams, in order to improve their chances of being admitted. If a university on your list has an acceptance rate of 60% or under, then you should take the ACT to help your chances of admission.

TOEFL and IELTS

The TOEFL and IELTS measure your ability to read, write, listen,
and speak English, and the maximum score for TOEFL is 120 and IELTS is 9. Individual universities decide what minimum score to accept, but elite universities often demand high scores (100+ TOEFL and 8+ IELTS). We recommend a score of 80 points or higher for TOEFL (6.5 IELTS) for less competitive universities, and 90 points or higher on TOEFL (7.5 IELTS) for moderately selective universities.

ACT Prep

Universities in the US do not offer guaranteed admission. One of the ways they decide who to admit is through standardized testing, like the ACT.

Our ACT course was developed by a Johns Hopkins University graduate and an admissions test prep expert. College Mastermind’s ACT courses will get you the results you want in the least amount of time possible.

In the US, you either take the ACT or the SAT to get into university. Although the content is essentially the same for either test, we find our clients do the best when they focus on one of them.

While most international students are more familiar with the SAT, the ACT has a higher weight in math and chart-reading than the SAT, which is weighted more heavily with the verbal and reading sections. For this reason, we recommend all international students taking this test to focus on the ACT.

For those students who wish to prepare for the SAT, they have the option to have a private SAT tutor.

Purpose of the ACT

Schools use the ACT as a test of your academic strengths. This standardized test is often more important for
admissions for international students than for domestic students, because it displays academic
Class rigor is an essential component of US admissions, and, since they are often unfamiliar with
your specific high school, university admissions officers rely heavily on tests like the ACT to determine
if a student is an academic fit for their institution.

Insider tip

Most universities’ number 1 concern is that the international students they admit
will have language struggles that will be problematic for academics or their experience.
We support students to study for the TOEFL, while gaining language skills
necessary to succeed at the college of their choice

TOEFL / IELTS Prep

Having the English foundations necessary to succeed in a US college is essential. Students who study for the TOEFL or IELTS are not just studying to impress admissions officers with their scores and interviews. They are establishing the knowledge necessary to help them acclimate to the language demands they will face in university.

Developed by one of the leading test prep companies in the United States, our TOEFL and IELTS programs give you access to over 120 videos to improve all 4 sections tested on the exam: Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing.

You are then paired with an expert private tutor or group tutor who will ensure you are on track with the lessons, and support you with the challenging areas of study. Your progress is monitored closely by your tutor, and personalized assignments will be given to you based on their assessment.

Purpose of the TOEFL and IELTS

Schools use tests like TOEFL and IELTS to gauge your linguistic abilities with the English language.
These standardized tests are only used for international students, and schools with no English.
As a Second Language courses are very strict with the score requirements of these tests.
They want you to succeed in the courses they offer that are taught in English, and want you
to be prepared to handle the course rigor they offer.
