想同步备考SAT/ACT,以防因疫情关系而被取消考试的意外,互补短长学生

Why This Course?为什么开这门课?

Students who will apply to top American or British universities in recent couple of years can still submit SAT or ACT scores as an application plus, and this is nearly an unspoken rule for asian applicants. The problem is SAT has been constantly canceled by nearly all test centres in Canada due to COVID pandemic since 2020 March, so the ACT computer-based test turns into a flexible alternative. From a teacher’s perspective to design a course, SAT and ACT co-prep course is also feasible as their Language and Reading sections are 100% the same that students will not waste time on learning either one regardless of the preferable test they will take. The difference lies in the fact that ACT is more time-restrained but the questions are easier, and also students need to prepare for the science section in ACT. Thus the SAT/ACT co-prep course seperate English with Science parts to customize students’ needs of learning.

对于近1-2年需要申请美本的学生来说,SAT或 ACT仍旧是一个加分项,尤其是对于成绩普遍较高的亚裔学生。但SAT目前并没有机考形式可选,这导致自2020年3月疫情爆发以来在加拿大地区95%的考场选择关闭考场,取消SAT考试。这样ACT成为一个更灵活选择。这是凯特教育设置SAT/ACT双备考班的动因,同时双备考班也是可行的:因为SAT/ACT在英文部分阅读,文法的文章和题型100%一样,区别是ACT相对难度较小一点但要求学生做题速度更快。理科部分SAT只含数学,而ACT包括数学和科学,因此SAT/ACT双备考班把英文和理科分开开班,满足不同学生需求。

SAT FAQ 考试常见问题及回答

语言能力

虽然SAT并不是属于语言考试,但它的基本假设是,所有的考生都达到了美国10-11年级学生的语言水平。因此,对于中国同学来说,努力提升我们的语言水平,或者说主要是阅读和写作的语言水平,是首先需要做的工作。

​不妨想想看,在高中阶段我们的中文语言水平达到了怎样的程度——可以自由地阅读所有题材和体裁的文章,可以理解文字中的逻辑和修辞,可以读懂文字背后的隐含信息和情感,可以熟练地应用中文进行议论文写作类似的,SAT所要求的英文语言能力也是如此。所以,光做真题根本不可能让一个考生达到上述水平,同学们需要做的是针对性的语言能力训练,包括阅读文章的训练,逻辑认知的训练,修辞识别和理解的训练,书面表达能力的训练等等。

Language Skills

Although the SAT is not a language test, its basic assumption is that all candidates have reached American students’ language level in grades 10-11.

SAT requires candidates to read articles of all genres and subjects, understand the text in the logic and rhetoric, interpret the implied information and emotions, and master the writing structure. Therefore, it takes time and effort for candidates to improve on reading for evidence rather than for meaning, and it’s a holistic skill set students should acquire.

思维能力。

这其实是新SAT考试真正的核心。简单地说,这里又包含了两个维度的思维能力——深度和广度所谓思维深度,是指你对事物和问题的看法达到了怎样的程度,你思考问题的逻辑是否清楚,你是否能洞察到问题的本质。而思维广度,则是你所涉猎的知识面有多宽,对于各种生活中遇到的话题,学术研究中涉及的问题是否有了解,是否能提出自己独到的见解。这两个维度所构成的思维能力,其实也就是我们经常说到的“批判性思维(Critical Thinking)”能力,该能力在阅读和写作中重点考察。

Critical Thinking Skills

SAT is challenging mainly because it requires two skills in thinking: depth and breadth. Depth means students should conduct in-depth analysis of each sentence, paragraph, and passage, as SAT questions are barely about the literal meaning in text, but about the analytical or inferential information. Meanwhile students should have experience of reading and writing in breadth, a variety of genres, to comprehend precisely.

很多SAT考生,无论自学还是报班,都把刷题当做第一要务,尴尬的是新SAT的真题是非常有限的,我们能找到的就是目前官方指南中给出的几套题,这对于很多同学来说肯定显得不够。那我们应该如何完成有效的备考呢?

在过去很多同学的学习和备考过程中,很多人(不论老师还是学生)都认为“刷真题”对于提高成绩有直接帮助,其实不然! 在我教过的十多万学生中,也有很多学生是在坚持“刷题”数十套,考试若干次后没有提高,才一脸疑惑地找到我的,他们往往非常沮丧,因为总觉得自己非常努力,却没有获得相应的回报。其实,如果你能理解“所有的考试都是在检测某些能力,而考试成绩和这些能力正相关”这个基本道理,就很容易理解“刷题不会提高成绩”的原因——“刷题”本身并没有改变你的这些能力,只是在机械重复你习惯性的思维错误而已。所以只刷题而不总结仅仅是在重复错误,错上加错。

所以,在备考过程中,其实我们没必要担心真题数量的多寡,更多的是应该想清楚,新SAT考试到底在检测我们的哪些能力,而我们应该怎么样提高这些能力。

Not necessarily. Practicing on tests will be helpful only when candidates have found their weakness and known the right method to improve, otherwise they simply repeat the same mistake even though the reading speed may be increased. Therefore, the key is to know how SAT questions are designed, learn the hidden language related rules, get instructed with the test-taking strategies, and then practice on tests.

买本SAT语法书。不论水平如何,这是备考 SAT必须要做的事。在Kate老师在学生中,大多是本地出生的或G9就从国内转到加拿大读书。那么此类同学的共同问题是语法基础薄弱,因为没有经历过国内高中轰炸式语法教学,自然对英语语法体系掌握的不够系统和扎实。所以Kate老师建议同学们针对SAT常考语法知识点,仔细阅读并配合练习题。这样会在SAT的阅读和文法中很多难点考点就迎刃而解啦。必备语法考点包括:

  • 名词,代词,冠词 (冠词不用看,但是想把英语学精确,可以看)
  • 介词,动词短语 (介词好好看,阅读和文法部分的词汇题大部分用到这个知识点)
  • 形容词和副词
  • 谓语动词 (时态,语态,主谓一致,情态动词,虚拟语气)
  • 非谓语动词
  • 并列句,复合句
  • 特殊句式

PS: SAT文法中还有很多中国学生从未见过的考点,这些考点甚至是native speakers都没有涉猎的,所以基础语法扎实非常非常重要!Kate老师有一本专门针对SAT语法整理出的体系书,有需要的同学可以加Kate老师微信号(Kateteacher),申请信息注明“SAT语法书“。

It’s pivotal for students to learn grammar prior to SAT prep., as both native English speakers and international students do not have a solid foundation in grammar up to SAT requirement. To prepare for the SAT Language & Writing section, students need to be familiar with punctuation, word choice, conventional grammar, and writing structure. The specific grammar in the exam include:

  • Noun, pronoun
  • Preposition, phrase
  • Adjective, adverb
  • Tense
  • Complex and compound sentence

PS: There are many other SAT grammar topics that students have never seen, even native speakers have never covered, so it is imperative to have good basic grammar. Kate has a remarkable book on SAT grammar. If you need it, please add “SAT Grammar Book” to Kate’s application information.

1、用途不同

SAT:美国高中生进入美国大学所必须参加的考试。

SSAT:美国中学入学考试,适用于美国、加拿大私立中学的入学。

2、考试内容不同

SAT:通常情况下,SAT考试内容为批判性阅读(Critical Reading)、数学(Mathematics)和写作(Writing)三个科目。

SSAT:考试共分为四个部分——词汇、阅读、数学和写作。前三个部分为计分项目,写作部分虽然不计分但是会在寄送官方成绩给学校时以复印件一并送达,所以也需要重视。

3、分数设置不同

SAT:满分1600

SSAT:低级阶段满分为2130; 而高级阶段满分是2400

SAT的数学错了一道790,错了2道770,错3道750。而SSAT的数学,如错了1道797,错了2道796,基本与没错一样。一般来讲比如ssat考到85%是申请多伦多排名前10的私校有希望;但如果sat考到85%也就算过得去的成绩,在不申请奖学金的情况下,考生可以申请美国排名40-60的大学。近2年申请美国排名前十的常春藤需要sat1550+,申请11-30学校需要1500+。

4、词汇题目不同

SSAT有专门词汇部分考察同义词和类比词,但SAT没有专门词汇板块。SSAT很多单词其实与SAT阅读文章词汇量相当,没有一定得词汇积累想读懂SAT的阅读文章是不可能的。甚至就算每个单词都认识想要做对题目也是很有难度的。另外SAT 和SSAT的阅读部分都有词汇题,该题往往不考单词本身常用意思,而是考察熟词僻义,这就需要考生对做题方法了如指掌。

5、阅读文章不同

SSAT的阅读,一般属于短文章,但SAT中的那些文章大概是前者长度的3-5倍。但两者都很重视考察小说与历史政治类文章。

6、考试时间不同

SAT:考试时间一共为3小时45分钟(225分钟)

SSAT:155分钟

Uses

SAT: The test that American high school students must take to enter American universities. In recent years, many American universities set it test-optional.

SSAT: American High School Entrance Examination for private high schools in the United States, Canada, and many other international top private schools.

Content

SAT: The SAT consists of three sections: Critical Reading, Mathematics, and Language & Writing.

SSAT: The test has four sections:  Verbal, Reading, Math, and Writing. The first three parts are scoring items. Although the writing part won’t be scored, it will be sent with a copy of the official SSAT score to the school students apply for, so it is equally important.

Score Settings

SAT: Full score: 1600

SSAT: The full score for the middle level is 2130, upper level 2400

Vocabulary Question

The SSAT has a separate Verbal section testing synonym and analogy, but the SAT doesn’t. In fact, many SAT candidates do not need to focus on vocabulary anymore if they have experience with SSAT, as the vocabulary required in SSAT is only 3000ish less than that in SAT. Also, there are vocabulary questions in the reading part of SAT and SSAT. This question often does not test the common meaning of the word itself, but examines the contextual meaning, which requires the examinee to know the strategy of doing the question very well.

Reading Passage

SSAT reading passages are usually short, but those on the SAT are about 3-5 times longer.  Both exams attach great importance to novels and historical and political essays.

Exam Time

SAT: The duration of the test is 3 hours 45 minutes (225 minutes).

SSAT: 155 minutes
