Krithika Kuppusamy, a member of the graduating class of 2015 at James E. Taylor High School and Test Masters SAT course graduate, has achieved a perfect 2400 on the SAT. Kuppusamy’s accomplishment places her in the top 1% of all students to take the SAT and confirms her place among the most elite test takers in the world.
Regarding her Perfect SAT Score and the role Test Masters played in helping her achieve it, Kuppusamy says, “I honestly doubt I could have gotten a perfect score without Test Masters. Taking all those practice tests really truly helped. I identified my pattern of thinking when it came to SAT questions and I figured out ways to avoid jumping to the wrong conclusions.”
“The teachers were really informative. They could be funny at times, but when it got down to business, they made sure that everyone understood the information. The study materials, especially the vocab list and the [Test Masters SAT Course Manual] really helped because they kind of summarized what we learned in class. All the main points were bulleted and jumped out of the page, so if you need to skim it the night before taking the test or something, it wouldn’t take long to cover all the important information.” Kuppusamy’s academic and personal achievements extend well beyond the realm of test taking. In addition to being a musician and dancer, Kuppusamy is also involved in Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Spanish Club, Spanish Honor Society (Secretary), National Honor Society, Key Club, and Debate.
Kuppusamy’s strong academic background, Perfect SAT Score, and involvement in school activities should serve her well as she prepares for college, particularly as she has targeted some very competitive universities as potential landing spots for her undergraduate education. “I’d like to attend a top-tier university, possibly Ivy League schools or similarly competitive colleges. Of course, I’m glad I’m in Texas because I always have UT and it’s a wonderful college!” Kuppusamy plans on pursuing a career in either medicine or business, but remains undecided on this front.
Q: How did you prepare for the SAT?
A: My friends and my parents’ friends’ kids had taken Test Masters before, so during sophomore year, I decided to take [the Test Masters SAT Classroom Course]. Then during junior year, I decided to finally attend Exam Club sessions, and it was actually Exam Club that helped me a lot
Q: How did Exam Club help prepare you for the SAT?
A: [Exam Club] helped focus my pattern of thinking, and I realized what things I needed to focus on and how I needed to think when certain things came up.
Q: What advice do you have for future students preparing for the SAT?
A: Honestly, just start early. The SAT was one of only the things I didn’t procrastinate on because the SAT is something you can’t procrastinate on because you can’t decide a month before the test what the SAT is really about. You have to know what’s on there, and you have to know what your strengths and weaknesses are.
