BENJAMIN KANG CLOBBERS NEW SAT, ACHIEVES PERFECT SCORE ON FIRST ATTEMPT
HOUSTON, TX (August 8, 2016) Benjamin Kang, a rising senior at St. John’s school, received a perfect score on the very first administration of the revised SAT, on the March 2016 administration of that exam. Kang’s accomplishment continues a long Testmasters tradition of producing Perfect Score students, and also demonstrates the company’s adaptability in the face of changing exam formats. Kang, who was referred to Testmasters by a family friend, says the practice exams he completed as a part of Testmasters’ Exam Club “provided an accurate, up-to-date representation of the actual test.” He continues, “Testmasters was able to predict the style of almost all of the questions on the new SAT despite there not being a precedent for the new test.” He says, “While the course itself helped immensely with boosting my Critical Reading score, the practice tests really polished my consistency.”
Kang also credits his success as a Testmasters student to the quality of the instruction he received. “The teachers were attentive and gave out lots of candy, and they made sure everyone was on the same page before moving through the different subject matters. One teacher played guitar for us during one of the breaks – he made that class enjoyable.”
Although Kang has not decided on which colleges he will target for admission next year, he hopes to escape Houston’s heat and humidity and attend school in either California or the Northeast. According to him, “The goal, of course, is one of the top schools.” Although undecided as to which school that will be specifically, he does plan on pursuing a degree in Engineering. His other interests include making music, lifting weights every day, and fishing, a lot. He also “runs a few clubs at [his] school.”
In recognition of his achievement, Testmasters will award Kang a $1000 Perfect Score Scholarship.
