Sophomores & Juniors: Plan Out Testing Schedules Now

posted in: Academic Planning, Testing | 0

Are you wondering when to take the SAT or ACT or both? Look ahead at your academic calendar and plan out your testing schedule in advance.. High school juniors should anticipate dates right now and get testing dates on the calendar for 2016/2017.

Generally speaking, it’s a good idea for students to prep for these tests during the summer prior to junior year. If you didn’t prep during summer, just make sure you schedule in some prep time before you test—there’s still plenty of time. Prepping early sets the student in motion for well thought out SAT/ACT planning at the very beginning of junior year. The more practice exams and test strategies you have under your belt, the more likely you are to do well on the exams.

Make sure you have registered for a testing date WELL before the deadline so you can have the advantage of testing on your own high school campus. High test scores can help give you a competitive edge over other applicants.

Test scores are often tied to merit scholarships. Obtaining a high score on your SAT or ACT not only benefits your college acceptance rates but can also help pay your tuition! Like it or not, merit scholarships are often tied to high test scores.

We guide students with test prep strategies by recommending a wide array of referrals & resources. Students who prepare well for standardized tests become more comfortable with the format of the exams – increasing their chances of tamping down the stress while obtaining higher scores. After many years of working with students, we can recommend test prep plans to ensure our students feel confident about their test-taking abilities.

We help students set up a sensible testing schedule based on their own personal situations. High school students have hectic lives—-they balance academic rigor with clubs, music, theatre, sports, working part-time jobs, and/or volunteering. We work with our students’ schedules to find the most suitable times for them to focus on preparing for their SAT or ACT
tests. We help ease the process by making sure our students are physically, mentally, and
emotionally prepared.
