Undergraduate Admissions 101
The SAT is a very important factor in your admission to US schools; nonetheless, it is not the only consideration. Your personal background, including experience, leadership, community involvement and high-school grades, are all key in determining whether you’re in or out. The admission committee evaluates your application holistically (application essays, SAT scores, interview, high-school grades and recommendations) to determine whether you would suit the school’s mission and student body. Schools prefer applicants possessing a track-record that demonstrates commitment to learning and betterment of society. Yeda Plus offers all its student free-of-charge Application Skills workshops on a monthly basis.
See our Application page to learn more about the application process.
“What if I don’t get my desired grade?”
The SAT is a challenging exam for both Israelis and Americans, so preparing for it may take some time. Do not worry – all students at Yeda Plus can repeat the course for a full year free of charge. Unlike other schools, we don’t believe in just promising that “you’ll have your money back if you don’t get the grade you need,” since this depends largely on your commitment. Instead, we give you all the time and resources you need to get there.
“I want to apply to US schools this upcoming year. When should I start my SAT course?”
You can do anything and within every time-frame – but the question is how effectively. We recommend at least six months in advance; this will allow you to prepare most effectively and take the test several times (most students take the test at least twice).
“I want to study in Israel. Can I use the SAT?”
Schools in Israel accept the SAT, TOEFL in lieu of the Psychometric exam (exceptions are Hebrew University and all med programs). Taking the GMAT ,SAT affords you the option of applying to schools in the US and Israel.
“I have test anxiety. Can you help?”
Many of our students suffer from this problem. The best remedy is proper preparation – practice makes perfect! Additionally, our SAT teachers can help you work through you problems to ensure that your anxiety interferes as little as possible with your performance.
“I have a disability, and am eligible for accommodations such as extra time. How do I claim these?”
College Board, which runs the SAT exam, takes a few months to process such requests. If you have any disability, it is imperative that you take the test with accommodations so your score doesn’t suffer. We’d be happy to help you through the process.
