Private education is perhaps the greatest dream of every parent. There are many advantages associated with an education in a private institution. In order to get admitted to any private institution a student needs to clear the ISEE or SSAT.
The student can appear for any of these tests and need to score heavily to increase his/her chances of getting admitted into a school of his/her preference. The zeal to score high in the tests should always be there.
ISEE or Independent School Entrance Exam is a test administered for students who are willing to get admitted in a private school. This is a very advanced test that assesses the students’ skills and abilities against the peers. The standards of this test conform to those of the National Council of Teachers of English, the International Reading Association and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. So you can very be sure that your child is being given a fair chance in the test.
The ISEE is, perhaps, the hardest exam as every year 80% of the candidates are rejected after this test. The exam is definitely not a cakewalk and requires lots of preparations. You need to help your child in his/her preparations so that he can ace this rather difficult test. You need to encourage your ward to do well and ensure that the preparations start very early. Last minute preparations will not help in this examination.
Different areas will be tested in this exam. These are verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, mathematics and reading comprehension. All the questions are skill based so you need to practice a lot before the D-Day. The student must aim to improve on all areas and should study intensively for the exam. Try to help your child by providing him different resources like sample questions on the different subjects.
ISEE is a very hard exam and you to pass this test you need to have confidence and mastery over all subject areas. ISEE is the barrier which a child needs to cross if you desire that your child gets that coveted education in a top flight private school. Every parent dreams of getting his child admitted in a private school and if you want to achieve that dream then make sure that your child is ready to tackle the ISEE.
