In a series of chain reactions, such as the canceling of examinations, revoking of visas and so on, today’s international student was paralyzed by changes. With the continuously evolving epidemic situation all around the world, China and other countries' flights and isolation policies are different. This year’s standard examinations have been seriously affected. All of this has greatly disrupted the plans of the students who are trying to apply to study abroad. How long will the current situation abroad last? Will it cause more obstacles to studying abroad? No doubt it is a matter of great concern.
We are well aware of the difficulties facing students in this period. After much struggle and effort Shanghai Living Word School has successfully gone through the inspection and certification process. It is now an official ACT Test Center for the US college entrance exam and opened to all our students!
This September, our students will be able to directly participate in the U.S. college entrance examination. Students will take the complementary GAC courses, and their test scores will be recognized globally. Students can apply for the first year of university directly without other preparatory courses based on their scores. Even after the epidemic has passed us, this will provide great convenience for everyone applying for examinations, students will have one less worry for their application process.
Furthermore, taking the ACT at our school can help you to avoid getting tired traveling the world. In addition to the United States, this test is also suitable for students who are interested in studying in Canada and Australia. Now let’s take a look at the ACT.
ACT介绍American College Testing
ACT全称“American College Testing”，中文名称为美国大学入学考试，是美国大学本科的入学条件之一。ACT考试与SAT考试均被称为美国高考，几乎被所有美国大学承认。美国大学不仅将ACT视为高中生的入学条件，还是发放奖学金的重要依据之一。
The full name of ACT is "American College Testing", and the Chinese name is “美国大学入学考试”, it is one of the admission requirements for American undergraduates. The ACT and SAT are both called American college entrance tests, which are recognized by almost all American universities. American universities not only regard the ACT as an admission’s requirement of high school students, but also as one of the important basis for granting scholarships.
ACT measures the academic standards of high school students and their ability to complete university studies through a four part multiple-choice questions exam testing: mathematics, reading, science and English. An optional composition test measures the writing ability of senior high school students. ACT Test Committee emphasizes that ACT scores can help universities judge whether students are able to successfully cope with English, social sciences, humanities, mathematics and science courses in college. ACT scores are directly related to a student's chances of successfully completing college.
Obtaining such an authoritative qualification certification this time has had a profound impact on the internationalization of our school's education. The ACT group’s auditors have affirmed our school’s excellent school performance. The comprehensive ranking and professional ranking of the colleges and universities that your child attends will have a great impact on your child's future work and lifestyle! To this end, our school will continue to develop new international resources, from the implementation of ACT test sites, to the introduction of supporting courses, from the signing of overseas study guarantees, to online research by university professors, from the arrangement of classrooms, to the arrangement of social practice, we always consider how to improve campus life for students. With the implementation of each improvement Living Word students will get better opportunities to study abroad!
The preparation process for applying to study abroad should never be changed due to changes in process standardization. Application preparation is actually a process of guiding students to become better people. Going through the application process, find and work hard for what you want to do, have a vision to make the world a better place, and make efforts to do it personally. Finally show all this through documentation, using awards, listing activities and other aspects, which is the core of the application. No matter how the policy changes, only those who are capable will enter prestigious schools. Facing the every changing epidemic situation we need to be flexible in adjusting our application strategy.
We hope everyone can prepare properly and get good results on the ACT Exam this September!
