Tips for Strengthening OLSAT Quantitative Scores

  •  Build a study plan and lead a routine. No matter how old your child is, a plan and a routine help both children and teenagers when studying. Your child will always know what to do and will be more confident on the day of the test, knowing he or she has completed all the tasks. Involve your child in building the plan and help him or her stick to the routine. Praise good study habits, such as studying before a leisure activity and not after, taking short breaks, focusing on the correct points, reading the explanations, etc.
  • Remind your child to be optimistic. If you are optimistic, your child will be optimistic. Remind your child it is fine not to know the answer and that practice makes perfect. The more your child practices, the better his or her results will be. While practicing it is perfectly fine to answer a question incorrectly. Of course, it is important to find the mistake and learn from it.
  • Go through the explanations carefully. Our website offers a fully-detailed, step-by-step explanation for each question. If your child answers a question incorrectly, it is necessary to read the explanation carefully and find the exact mistake your child made. Even if your child answers a question correctly, it is still important to read the explanation, compare the methods used to solve it, and learn new methods and details. Do not skip the explanations.
  • Encourage your child to focus on his or her weaknesses. Practice makes perfect. The only way to improve your child's weaker spots is through practice, although children sometimes try to avoid those challenging topics. Our prep packs offer abundant practice in every relevant topic. Your child might need help and guidance from you to know what to focus on - encourage him or her to practice those subjects he or she finds more challenging.
  • Practice every topic. While guiding your child to practice subjects he or she finds challenging is cruicial, as explained before, it is also important to practice those subjects that are easier for him or her. That is because the phrase "practice makes perfect" is always accurate: the real test contains questions of varying difficulty, and it is therefore highly recommended to go through every type of question and gain tools for the more difficult ones.
  • Encourage healthy easing and sleeping habits. Nutritious food and a good night's sleep have been proven to improve students' academic achievements. Encourage your child to eat vegetables, fruit, and complex carbohydrates, and avoid sweets, which might hurt his or her concentration levels. Also make sure he or she gets enough sleep, especially before the test.
  • Get as much information as possible about the test. Let your child have that information too. If your child comes to the test knowing what to expect, he or she will be more confident and perform better.
