In 2007, one of USA’s National Public Radio, NPR, reported the challenges a certain Danielle Rettinger, a high school student at the time, went through before being admitted into college. That was because she took the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) twice, but could not meet the scores needed to secure entry into college. The SAT is an entrance exam taken by all the high school students applying to US universities and the score on the exam matters. The higher your score, the better the chances you have of being admitted into your college of choice.
The challenge faced by Miss Rettinger is similar to those faced by many students who want to further their studies in the United States of America or Anglo-Saxon universities.
However, this might soon be a thing of the past for Cameroonian students from High School (Upper, Lower Sixth, Premiere and Terminale) who will be aspiring to further studies in English-taught Universities in the US and other countries.
That is because No Limit, an Academic and Career advising firm located in several cities in Cameroon and a champion in sustainable education has launched the No Limit SAT BOOT CAMP, which will be taking place from June 8 – June 29, 2022, in Yaounde at Quartier Emana.
The organisation realised that many students in Cameroon could qualify for scholarship opportunities or even admissions into US universities, but lacked a good SAT score to get accepted.
“When admissions officers at top US universities review a student’s application for the first time, the learner’s academics are the first thing they will see. Between your high school transcript and standardised test scores, the admissions officers’ assessment of a student’s academic aptitude helps determine whether he/she is a good candidate for their university — so, it is important to make a strong showing,” said NO LIMIT academic Founder, Dr Orly Tantchou.
The first-time event will be instructed by a US SAT tutor because “For top US universities, submitting strong SAT scores is an instant indicator that you are a studious and diligent student — qualities that admissions officers value. But acing these exams is not easy, especially when the bar is set so high: at Ivy League universities, the average admit’s SAT score is in the 95th percentile. That’s why we felt it was important to organise this first-ever camp in Cameroon” NO LIMIT academic Founder added.
Preparation for the exam is essential to obtaining high scores. So, the NO LIMIT SAT BOOT CAMP that is scheduled for June 8 – June 29, 2022, and led by one of the best SAT tutors in the US, M. Christopher THATCH, will give Cameroonian students an edge on the SAT exam Day.
“Trust NO LIMIT Team and get admitted into a top university in the US. We are bringing the best SAT tutor to you in Cameroon” the organisation assured.
