Not all colleges and universities will require students to take the separate SAT Essay Test.
The College Board recommends checking with the educational institutions in which students are interested to find out specific testing requirements for each school.
The program starts with an initial consultation and two to four essay instruction/lessons on campus.
After the initial instruction on campus, the student receives 4 essays and answer sheets. After the student completes an essay at home, he sends it via email to Accel for analysis.
Essay analysis and scores will be emailed after the essay has been reviewed by an Accel English teacher. The student is then required to revise his essay and email it for a final review by the Accel teacher. This revision is extremely important for students to improve.
