Would this expression sound awkward to a native speaker? Hi, I'm running a small online business where students meet tutors on skype and do test preps (kind of like italki lessons). We're trying to say you don't have to FLY abroad to pass a foreign language test, but instead you can simply just get on skype. One of the catchphrases we've come up with is. [We make the "scores" fly, not "you"]. Is it idiomatic/natural to say scores "fly" or "fly up" when they go up by a lot? I need opinions/comments from a native English speaker. Thanks:)

Hmm "soar" (a synonym of "fly") is commonly used to describe the improvement of grades. But I don't think it's commonly used with "score" :/

In my opinion, instead of test preps, "preparation for tests" sounds a lot better, as does "converse over Skype" sound better to me than "simply just get on Skype." It might just be me being picky, but everything else is perfect! :')
