|NAIROBI Peter Holland Maple Leafs Jersey , July 1 (Xinhua) -- Kenya will seek to atone the poor performance its team had at the last Olympic Games in London when it competes at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland from July 23 to Aug. 3.
Kipchoge Keino, Chairman of the National Olympic Committee of Kenya (Nock), said on Tuesday Kenyan athletes have a chance to redress their poor show in their last trip to the United Kingdom by dominating the Club Games, which are only open to the former British Colonies.
"We have unfinished business. Scotland will host the Commonwealth games and our youths have a chance to prove to the world that they are the best in their discipline. This will be measured by the medals they will scoop and the time set," Keino said in Nairobi on Tuesday.
The East African country, which wound up sixth at the last Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India in 2010, will still rub shoulders with bigwigs Australia, India, England, South Africa and Nigeria in the three week-long competition.
With no Olympics or the World Championships this year, many of the athletes will view the event as the biggest multi-sport competition, apart from the Brazil World Cup, and will utilize the chance to stamp their authority in respective disciplines.
Keino said the climate in Scotland in a bit good and nothing would stop them from posting better shows.
"The weather conditions in Glasgow is good at the moment. I competed at the Commonwealth Games in 1970 there and, as Kenyans, we did our best then. We only need to prepare well and bring home the glory."
"We have come a long way and I believe that you will excel. We have invited Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta to Glasgow and you never know, he might come," said Kipchoge.
Kenya will spend about 3.5 million U.S. dollars to send a team of about 200 athletes and officials.
Kenya entered its relay team for the British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Vancouver, Canada, in 1954, which acted as the start to global glory.
But they now have little to show 60 years later, despite having ruled the world charts in 1960's. Kenya will be represented in 15 sports disciplines, with athletics, boxing, swimming and rugby sevens likely to be the areas where the medals haul will be attained.
The Team Kenya will not look outside for inspiration other than the legendary Keino, who was in Kenya's medal-winning squad at the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1972. He also won Kenya the first gold at the Olympics in the 3,000m steeplechase event.
Keino said he has given permission to the elite track and field athletes to compete at the IAAF Diamond League in Lausanne, Paris and Monaco so as to polish their skills ahead of the games. Some will also be allowed to compete at the Glasgow Diamond League on the weekend prior to the Commonwealth games.
Stephen Soi, the team's Chief de Mission, said Kenyan squad would stop any assault from their old oppressors (England) or any emerging opposition in their traditional events.
"This year's bowling team had been preserve for Kenyans of European origin but the trend has changed. The shooting team will be detached from the entire team in Glasgow," said Soi.
SAT refers to a standardized test that is taken for college admissions in the US. The College Board, a non-profit organization, owns, publishes and develops this test. In the past, it was managed by the Educational Testing Service, which is still in charge of administering the exam. This test is considered very important because it assesses how ready a student is to begin their college education. SAT prep courses are available through various educational facilities.
The exam is broken up into three key parts: critical reading, writing and mathematics. Students may earn a score between 200 and 800 on each section. Questions featured on the exam will come at varying levels of difficult. Typically the hard questions come at the end and the easier ones are in the beginning.
Most people start preparing for the exams over the last few years of their time in high school. In fact, many high schools provide preparation tools for students. There are online resources and colleges that offer resources necessary for studying too. Most students strive to achieve high scores because this can influence college admissions. Some universities put much emphasis on SAT scores and do not consider candidates that have scores under their criteria.
The information covered in preparation courses will vary. Most of these programs are based around practice tests. These tests are designed to have similar questions and formats to what will be found on the SAT. Students will take these practice exams and then receive feedback. This feedback may include the correct answers and explanations to the questions the students answered incorrectly. This will allow them to see where they went wrong and how they can improve.
Prep programs or courses may be available at no cost. However, not all of these resources are free. There are a lot of companies and private counselors that offer studying services at a fee. The cost will depend on the provider of service, length and structure of the program.
To some, these types of courses are just a waste a money. They do not believe that this type of training will make a big enough change to the results to warrant the cost of them. However, there are people who thing that these comprehensive courses can greatly improve test scores.
In some areas students are given the ability to take the exam again, to improve their score. Because o this, students may choose to take the exam during the earlier years of high school, allowing them to make improvements. While the exams are designed to show how ready one is for university, even people who have lower scores can get into many colleges.
