SAT Private Tutoring in Auckland (New Zealand)

Auckland students interested in acceptance to top universities in the United States should include rigorous SAT preparation in their plans.

Students cannot find a more reliable and experienced SAT prep resource anywhere in Auckland.

High SAT scores create more favorable circumstances for applicants to the most selective universities. Some of these schools report their acceptance rates by SAT score ranges, and these numbers show that elite SAT performance results in optimal odds of acceptance. The overall admit rate at Princeton University, for example, is 7.1%. Students who score 2300 or better on the SAT, however, are more than twice as likely to get accepted (14.5%), and anything above 2100 gives an applicant better-than-average chances of success. At UCLA, applicants with SAT critical reading, math, and writing section scores of 700 or better were accepted at the respective rates of 51.81%, 33.6%, and 47.06%, with an admit rate of 51.89% for composite scores of 2100 or above. Students in the next lower sectional and composite ranges fared much worse, with admit rates of 21.33% (600-690 critical reading), 16.07% (600-690 math), 17.91% (600-690 writing), and 15.66% (total score of 1800-2090). Manhattan Review's SAT prep courses and private tutoring in Auckland give our students a substantial advantage in the college application process.

Auckland students can enroll in our SAT prep courses or private tutoring with the confidence that our past record inspires. Manhattan Review clients have been accepted to world-class universities such as Stanford, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Dartmouth, MIT, Cornell, Duke, the University of Chicago, Columbia, Georgetown, and Brown. Many of these students have returned to us in order to prepare for graduate admissions tests, including the GMAT, GRE, or LSAT. Manhattan Review students have also become successful in professional life.
