Practice Tests

In-Person Proctored ISEE/ HSPT Practice Tests | 2020

Check back in July for Fall 2020 practice test dates!

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 host local proctored exams in the Los Angeles area and have the capacity 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.
