Sophomores & juniors: Plan your testing schedule & strategy

posted in: Testing | 0

Look ahead at your academic calendar and plan out your testing schedule in advance. Prior to taking the SAT or ACT it’s highly recommended that you prep. 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 you get admitted to college. Aside from your GPA, letter of recommendations, and extracurricular activities, your standardized test scores can 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.
