What exactly is Pre-College Prep?
Pre-Colleg prep is a subject-specific course developed for students who are about to begin their graduate degree programme at an international university. This course will prepare students for university study skills by teaching courses that are directly relevant to the chosen degree programme. A student pursuing engineering, for example, will have a few core disciplines like Calculus, Engineering Physics, or Engineering Chemistry that require a certain level of “previous knowledge.” As a result, in order to bridge the gap in subject knowledge between high school and university, EduQuest provides a limited amount of subject-prep assistance.
How will students benefit from the pre-college prep course?
Being better prepared for a university course assists the student in achieving the level of knowledge, confidence, and subject mastery required to succeed on a graduate degree course.
Students can select the subject for which they require assistance based on the course they have applied for in college. Gaining subject knowledge ahead of time will better prepare a student to handle the college curriculum.
EduQuest helps students prepare for college by assisting them in the following topic courses:
Calculus, Engineering Chemistry, Engineering Physics, Business and Economics Mathematics, and Chemical Biology Courses in Engineering, Medicine, and Business Management are also available.
If you believe you require assistance in a subject other than those listed above, please contact us.

Misconceptions about the AP Test
Taking SAT AP tests will not help me with my college application.
The AP Subject Tests are a great approach to highlight your talents by demonstrating your expertise in disciplines such as engineering, pre-med, and cultural studies.
Some institutions demand, and even encourage, the completion of a certain topic test in order to be admitted to a programme or major. Even if your preferred college does not have such a requirement, taking a topic test and submitting your scores is incredibly beneficial to your college application.
Furthermore, if a student performs well on a specific AP Subject Test, several universities will give an exemption from or credit for a freshman course requirement. Inquire about the policies of the college of interest.
Furthermore, most universities accept either the ACT or the SAT and have no preference between the two examinations. The ACT and SAT patterns are not identical. Both necessitate a distinct preparatory plan and skill set. Preparing for both can be a daunting and tough task. So, why should you take both tests?
If I have already taken the SAT or ACT, I do not need to take the AP Subject Tests.
As previously stated, few universities require or suggest additional AP Subject Tests in addition to the SAT or ACT. AP results are also utilised to determine course placement. You may be able to fulfil basic prerequisites or possibly obtain credit for introductory-level courses based on your performance. If you’re interested in specific fields of study, take AP to demonstrate to universities that you’re prepared for specific majors or courses. AP, in conjunction with other entrance credentials (your high school record, SAT scores, teacher recommendations, and so on), can present a holistic picture of your academic background and interests.
Fee exemptions are available for AP Tests.
Scores on the AP Subject Tests do not entitle you to fee waivers in college. Instead, a high score on a AP test demonstrates your readiness in that subject and gives you an advantage over the competition. It is a method of demonstrating your preparation and aptitude in a subject before beginning college.
