Design, search and perform exercises and exams very similar to the one to be done, adjusting times, reviewing the answers and learning from mistakes.


Believe in our own capacity; value our knowledge and adequate preparation; Trust our competence to perform the test properly.


Arrive rested to the evaluation, with sufficient time and the necessary material; Before starting you have to try not to review or talk about the exam and avoid nervous partners.


Know, distribute and control the time available to perform the entire test, and to answer each question. Read, plan, write, review.


Focus on positive thoughts; if we stay blank, tranquility will help us remember; We can move on to the next question and resume it later.


Follow the instructions, read carefully the statements and the information they provide. Know the value of each question and the scoring system.


Adjust to what they ask. Summarize, define, outline, compare and develop. If it is possible not to leave blank questions, answer at least with some idea or a scheme.

In order to provide guidance and academic support to students, Santo Tomas Los Angeles has the Learning Center. This is a specialized academic instance, where students attend tutorials in which they can reinforce content seen in classes and / or improve their skills so that they are successful in their studies. “Our ultimate goal is to contribute to the improvement of teaching-learning processes through direct support to our students explains the Director.
