ACT Tutoring in Doha (Qatar)
Many applicants to universities in the United States will take the ACT as part of the admissions process. At most schools, test scores are heavily considered and contribute substantially to the acceptance or rejection of applications. Manhattan Review is an international test prep company that offers a full range of services for the ACT in Doha, including on-site or online ACT prep courses, one-on-one tutoring for the ACT, and ACT practice tests. Doha students can select the comprehensive ACT learning plan that best suits their academic strengths and study preferences. Outgoing students usually prefer group instruction, which can be taken either at home via the internet or at various practical sites in Doha. Test-takers in need of individual instruction should consider our private tutoring plans, which feature ACT teaching custom-designed to the needs of the student. Manhattan Review has been leading the world in test prep instruction for international students since we were founded in 1999, and we have facilitated positive learning outcomes for test-takers from virtually every cultural and academic background. Flexible scheduling allows Doha students to get started right away on the area's most effective ACT prep.
Recently published research has shown some decline in the overall averages of ACT test-takers over the past few years, which has been attributed to a larger pool of students. In 2012, when approximately 1.67 million students took the ACT, the average composite score was 21.1. Almost 2.1 million students took the ACT in 2016, and the mean composite score was 20.8 (a drop of .3 points). The decrease was most pronounced in English and math, which declined .4 and .5 points respectively (science and reading were largely unchanged). Even as overall test-taker performance has gone down, the ACT standards of highly selective universities have increased. At Yale University, for example, the 25th-percentile ACT score for accepted students was 31 in 2012 and 32 in 2016. Middle-50% ACT scores at Princeton University were 31-34 in 2012 and 32-35 in 2016. The most selective universities have extremely high ACT expectations, and students who are able to meet these high standards will have strong chances of acceptance. Furthermore, high test scores give students plenty of options for their undergraduate education.
Manhattan Review's ACT prep courses and ACT private tutoring have helped students in major cities all over the world (including Doha) secure admission to the best universities in the United States.

Many of our past Doha clients are currently back in the city as employees of top local firms, including Al Jazeera Media Network, Barwa Group, Qatar Development Bank, Hamad Medical Corporation, and BSI Steel.
