Early Test Prep is ideal for students seeking to guarantee long-term mastery of various secondary and boarding/preparatory school entrance exams. The preparation course is designed to reinforce vocabulary acquisition and the relevant reading skills and strategies. These skills are necessary to achieve a higher score on the reading and vocabulary sections of numerous standardized entrance exams outside of Hong Kong, including the SSAT, SAT, and ACT. Capstone’s Early Test Prep course utilizes custom-edited passages, vocabulary lists, and quizzes to ensure that students are learning at the right level and are achieving constant progress in their learning.
Capstone’s SSAT Bootcamp will equip students with the fundamental skills and test-taking strategies needed to take the Upper-Level SSAT. In this test preparation course, students will learn the vocabulary, reading, and mathematics topics tested on the SSAT. As the SSAT is known for difficult vocabulary questions and wrong answer penalties, students will also learn how to answer test questions in a structured and educated way, practicing the application of these techniques during in-class drills and homework assignments. Upon completion of the course, students can approach test day with a sense of assurance, knowing that they are equipped with a clear understanding of what to anticipate while possessing the knowledge and skills to express their answers.
For students looking to venture outside Hong Kong for their tertiary education, this course will equip students with the fundamental skills and test-taking strategies needed to tackle the two most important standardized tests for US university admissions: the ACT and Digital SAT. In the first half of the course, students will cover the grammar, reading, and math concepts tested on both the ACT and Digital SAT and learn the similarities and differences between the tests. In the second half of the course, students will be split into two streams based on their test preference (ACT or Digital SAT) and learn topics and strategies specific to the test of their choice. Students can also opt for drop-in homework sessions with our guidance for additional personalized attention and feedback. Classes will be taught with Capstone’s own ACT + Digital SAT textbook as well as official ACT / Digital SAT practice tests (materials included in course fee). By the end of the course, students will be able to walk in on test day with confidence, knowing exactly what to expect and how to perform to the best of their abilities.
