SHSAT ELA more important than ever!
More of our students gained admission to Stuyvesant this past year based on excellent ELA scores than ever before. Why? How? More prep books and resources focus on math, even now. Our subscribers historically spend more time on math, even now. That approach to SHSAT prep is a mistake. The new SHSAT exam is different than the old exam, and it requires a new approach to prep.
- The elimination of certain verbal exam sections and the introduction of new reading topics like edit-revise passages and fiction including literature and poetry have fundamentally changed the ELA exam. The change is dramatic and has enormous consequences to prep, yet most SHSAT prep resources are still math-centric and most students and parents still operate with the same “old school” mindset.
- The ELA exam provides a core strategic opportunity to differentiate yourself on the SHSAT and failure to adjust to the new ELA may even lead to failure. Our results this year demonstrate the need to correctly digest the new strategies for what has fundamentally become a more challenging reading exam. Success is not determined by mastery of theorems and repetition of exams in the same way students prep for math. Reading success is driven by your understanding of the exam design rather than your knowledge of theorems. Unfortunately, there are few resources for SHSAT reading prep and even fewer that are excellent or not based on the “old school” verbal exam strategies.
- We focus on a holistic approach to teaching the reading exam, perfected over years by our experienced 99th percentile college admission exam instructors. There is little way for parents to differentiate between one reading prep course versus another. The courses or prep materials that worked a couple years ago are, in many respects, garbage today. Chances are the more expensive course is not the the best quality option today. The “old school” techniques are analogous to building part of a house. Our goal is to teach students about the architecture and framework of the house, so they can better identify how different techniques, including many new approaches, fit into the overall picture while they build the entire house. We were one of the first to revamp our platform to take advantage of the new ELA exam, and our results demonstrate the value of our efforts. Let us help you.
