Practice Tests

Practice tests are the single most effective factor in exam preparation. At Unlocking Potential, we believe that practice makes perfect…or at least improvement!  Mock exams are an essential part of our curriculum, and we offer scoring and score interpretation for families who want to get the most value out of these tests. We also offer local proctored exams in the Los Angeles area and have the capability to set them up in other locations for groups of 10 students or more.  Our class instructors and tutors utilize these tests as tools to increase the effectiveness of their sessions and focus on the areas that need the most attention.

We offer three types of practice tests during each proctored session.  The Middle Level ISEE is for entrance into middle school for grades 7 and 8, although many students take the test a year before the admission process for practice or as a pre-assessment.  The Upper Level ISEE and HSPT are for entrance into high school.

Our practice tests are open to everyone, but registration is required.  Please click the link below to register for our next practice test.
