Do I need to study for the SAT or is it like an IQ test?

The SAT tests you on your math and English language skills, which almost all students have learned by the end of the 10th grade. At Ivy Aspire, we understand that students come from different schools and tracks. We are aware of what each board, ICSE, CBSE, IGCSE, IB, and various other state boards, are strong at and what they omit. Allowing us to understand the best ways to improve your scores and success in the test.


First, we ensure you will get comprehensive learning of all the core concepts of the SAT. Second, we will work on your exam-taking skills – teaching you tips and tricks that will help you score better, finish the exam faster, and also conserve your energy for the 4-hour test. Third, we ensure you get enough to practice each and every type of question you can expect so that you are prepared for all types of questions. Fourth, we give you enough practice tests, as a large part of the SAT is the fatigue that sets in after your second or third hour of testing. This helps in ensuring you build your stamina for the exam.


This is why the SAT is far more involved than a simple IQ test. IQ tests are generally a measure of ability rather than acquired skills, whereas the SAT helps to measure acquired skills. The SAT also tests your exam skills, fast-reading skills, summarization skills, critical thinking skills, and other important skills and attributes. Studies have shown that test preparation dramatically increases scores materially. This is also a criticism of the SAT to some extent, but that’s the reality. If you prepare well, with Ivy Aspire, you will boost your scores.
