One of the highest scoring students who was accepted to Stuyvesant High School with a score of 648 was Aronya Sarker and she said “I went to Khan’s(Online) when I was in 7th grade and I looked forward to attending every week. Their prep structure was really beneficial and taught me a lot. The online lessons and work were very well thought out. It showed me my weakness, my strengths, and always challenged me. I really liked the instructors and even when we switched to remote, they still prepared us just as well and made sure we didn’t slack off.”
Hafsa Chowdhury who scored 598 and was accepted to Bronx High School of Science shared that “The online SHSAT program covered a variety of subjects and helped me feel prepared for the test. As I was doing the SHSAT workbooks, I was able to do all the problems correctly because of my KHANS INSTRUCTION and I received many tips from my instructors. When taking the exam, I was definitely prepared for it because khan’s continuously exposed me to these problems through their classwork and homework. Thanks to khan’s tutorial, I was successful in getting into my first choice for specialized high schools.” – Hafsa Chowdhury.
Nadia Mahmud scored 512 and was offered admission at Brooklyn Technical High School. She said of her experience at Khan’s Tutorial, “Khan’s(Online) has really helped me grow and learn as a student. It
allowed me to focus on what I needed to improve at an excellent pace. Furthermore, the people there are always nice and friendly, and always ready to help! Their explanations are clear and easy to understand, making improving on my work (and being at Khan’s in general) a very enjoyable experience! Khan’s went over and reviewed the SHSAT topics very thoroughly, and I’m grateful for that because it introduced concepts that I didn’t know before (and otherwise not have known about if it weren’t for Khan’s) So overall, Khan’s tutorial really helped me improve in my studies and helped me get into an amazing school!”
We are so proud of our students for getting into the top high schools in New York CIty. Khan’s Tutorial will continue calling back families this week to retrieve the rest of the scores with the number of offers expected to surpass 200 students again.
