Is the SAT test only for US universities admissions?
SAT is one of the most internationally recognized standardized tests and will give you a wide variety of universities around the world to apply to. Apart from US colleges, universities in the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia etc. allow students to report their SAT scores as supplemental materials for their applications.
Do I still need to prepare for the SAT now that many universities are test optional?
It is true that many universities are going test optional, but it is important to understand that they are not “test blind”. They will still review students’ SAT scores if submitted and statistics showed that the admission rate for students who submitted the test scores can be twice as high as those without*.

I have received emails about Millie SAT Diagnostic Test. What is it?
Millie offers free online monthly SAT Diagnostic Test for all students to join. In the comfort of your own home, you may experience a full length SAT test with students from all over the world! Upon attending our feedback session after the test, you will receive your test scores and be able to compare your results against other students who took the same seating as you.
Through the diagnostic test, you will have a better idea as to which area in the English and Math sections you would need assistance on. All of our SAT group class and 1:1 class students would have already taken the diagnostic test before enrolling, and the course materials are designed based on the relative strengths and weaknesses that the students displayed in the diagnostic!
Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about our next available SAT Diagnostic Test Date!
I am a Class of 2025, should I start studying for the SAT?
Given that the validity period of SAT is 2 years, your SAT scores could still be valid by the time you apply for university, depending on when you are planning on taking the test and submitting your university application (for instance, if you plan to take the December 2022 test and submit your US university application by November 1 2024 to catch the early app round, then your score will remain valid and you can also take the SAT under the current format).
Would I have access to the class recordings?
We record all classes and share the recordings with our students for their reference via our online learning tool. You won’t miss a thing from class!
I am more interested in 1:1 SAT. Does Millie offer this option as well?
Yes we do offer 1:1 programs. Our 1:1 SAT mentoring programs are offered on a monthly module basis. Students usually choose to enroll in one of the below class setups:
- 8 classes per month, with two classes a week
- 12 classes per month, with three classes a week
For students who are new to preparing for the SAT, usually they will be ready to take the official exam after studying 3-4 modules with us.

I heard that the SAT will be changing format between 2023 to 2024?
You are correct. The Collegeboard will be rolling out the computerized SAT format to international students at the start of 2023 and to US students in 2024. Before you freak out, the good news is universities know how to handle and compare scores in times of test format changes, so you won't be penalized for taking the old tests.
What's the differences between 2-week intro courses and 5-week intro courses?
Our courses are offered in 2-week and 5-week durations.
- 2-Week Course: Classes are conducted everyday from Monday through Friday for 2 weeks. 1.5 hours per class, 10 classes in total. Only available during school breaks such as Easter Break, Lunar New Year Break, Half-term, etc.
- 5-Week Course: Millie’s regular group class offering. Classes are conducted 2 times a week for 5 weeks. 1.5 hours per class, 10 classes in total.
What if our students only need help in math and not English?
As a school, you can choose to offer an English only course, or a Math only course, and in that case all 10 sessions will be on that subject and more in-depth materials will be covered. Should you have 1-2 students wanting to do 1 subject only while the rest require practice in both, we recommend you advising those students for 1-1 options.
