Free Practice Exam and Analysis
A-List Education offers a FREE diagnostic SAT or ACT practice exam to anyone interested in our services. Students that continue as clients receive unlimited free practice exams. We simulate test-day conditions in our Kensington offices, where a qualified proctor supervises the practice exams per SAT and ACT standards.
Taking the test:
- Call or email our office to schedule a time slot for an SAT or ACT diagnostic test. Please see below for contact details; weekday and weekend times are available.
- Students should arrive ten minutes before the scheduled time, bringing a calculator, pencils, a bottle of water, and any snacks they would like during breaks.
- The SAT and ACT each take approximately 3 hours to complete (or 4 hours with the optional essay), including two 5-minute breaks.
- Students with SAT- or ACT-approved accommodations are allowed extra time. Please let us know in advance so we can adjust the timing accordingly.
Reviewing the scores:
- We use an optical scanner to mark answer sheets, and experienced essay graders read every essay. Tests are scored in two working days or less.
- Your score report will contain a detailed analysis of your score, with a breakdown by section and subsection, as well as a complete account of which questions were answered correctly and incorrectly. It will also identify which of A-List’s techniques could have helped on which questions.
- Students who choose to continue with A-List tuition will have a detailed discussion with an experienced advisor to map out study plans and next steps leading up to the exam.
Besides the initial diagnostic test, we have numerous practice ACTs and SATs for students to use in their preparations. These are FREE to all our clients, and we encourage students to get as much practice as possible. We administer practice tests throughout the school year and during holidays.
For students that are unable to make it in to our office but still want to take a diagnostic exam, we can forward the necessary materials by email or post. This includes the full exam paper with an essay, personalised bubble sheet, timing sheets and proctoring instructions.

From Our Tutoring Clients
A-List’s tutors are excellent. The A-List Book of Knowledge textbook helped IMMENSELY, and condensed all the topics in very understandable ways. The college counsellors have many years of expertise in the field, and can help you find a range of schools that are tailored to your requirements. I would recommend getting assistance from A-List to anyone who wants to study in the USA.

Dear A-List’ers—I just wanted to let you know that, thanks to your effective SAT tutoring, my son was offered a place at Stanford in the early action round. We are thrilled! Thank you for helping prepare him for the SAT and SAT Subject Tests over the past 15 months. He found it incredibly valuable and effective.

—Daniel A, +530 SAT points, awarded $62,000 per year by Harvard University.
I can’t recommend A-List UK enough. You really feel that you can use as much or as little from what they offer to suit your needs. I will certainly be using them for my other two children!

A-List is the best possible method of applying to the US. The quality of care is exceptional and they truly are my saving grace.

Really useful and fun camp. My SAT score improved massively.
Not only did A-List allow me to greatly improve my scores, but it also gave me an opportunity to make new friends.
A-List was 100% what I was looking for in SAT preparation. The strategies and techniques – they all work!
