Unless you are in the top 1% who strikes every exam, the 99% will feel uncertain and start questioning themselves.
Am I prepared? Did I do enough exercise? What if the exam this year is more difficult than the practice set I solved last night? Another case (many of you would relate to) is that you could not do a practice test right before the exam because you ran out of them. It is a reality. There aren’t many proper practice sets available out there.
So you have no choice but to walk in without knowing how you will perform. This is exactly what we wanted to change. We wanted to give that confidence and reassurance to students, and the Score Prediction model was our solution.

Our AI knows your score better than anyone
The score prediction model predicts how a learner would perform in a standardized test based on the learner’s problem-solving data. This is different from just calculating how many questions you got right out of a total number of questions. What it doesn’t do is: if you get 7 questions right out of 10, it gives you 70%. What it does is: even if you solve a limited number of questions, the AI analyzes the complex information embedded in each question and how a student interacts with the question considering factors like the time spent solving it, and finally predicts your score that is as accurate as the real exam.
To explain further, it becomes very technical. But what we can tell you more is that the model has been presented at renowned AI conferences such as Educational Data Mining (EDM) and the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), proving its performance and efficiency. And it has also been tested in a real learning scenario.
Some may take the SAT more than once (which you should), the next question is whether all colleges see all your scores or mainly the one you scored higher on. The answer is it depends. Some schools require you to send all scores and others only want your highest one. Make sure you check the requirements from the college.
Generally, you want at least a 1000 for any four-year college, at least a 1200 for higher tier schools, and at least a 1400 for an Ivy League. However, every school is different, and the best idea to figure out what a good SAT score is for the college of your dreams is to contact an Excel College Counselor and let them know your expectations, they can then let you know what will be expected.
The SAT and ACT are different in a few ways, but they both share the fact you will need to focus and you’ll still have to study, so best to pick one and commit.Both the SAT and ACT cover Reading, Writing (Grammar), and Math and are about 3 hours long. Here are the key differences:
- The ACT has an additional Science section, which is similar to the science passages you get on the SAT, but it’s a whole section of them.
- The ACT lets you use a calculator for the whole Math section, but the SAT only lets you use it for 1 of the 2 Math sections. BUT the ACT is way stricter about the tools you can use. For example, you can use a TI-89 on the SAT, but not on the ACT.
- You get less time per question on the ACT.
Because the ACT has more quantitative-style questions (i.e. the Science section), we recommend you pick the ACT if that’s your strong suit.
Unfortunately No, the College Board has not made the SAT available online.
On average, we have 40+ students that score over 1450 on the SAT and 34 on the ACT every year.
We have more than 30 students with National Merit Semifinalist designations.
We have had students score a perfect 1600 (SAT) on their first attempt.
We had a student score a perfect 36 (ACT) in Winter 2017.
We had another 2 students score a perfect 36 (ACT) in February 2020.
We have had two Nevada Presidential Scholars in 2019 and 2020.
And finally, we have had a B. Duke Scholar Program Finalist (only one of 9 students) in 2020.
