Why is SAT Tutoring Important?

There is a common myth that standardized test scores such as the SAT are losing their importance in the college admissions process. This is inaccurate. With the increasing number of applications in recent years, many schools are placing a greater emphasis on standardized test scores than ever. Students should recognize that they should prepare for the SAT just as they would with any other test. Tutoring and SAT test preparation have been shown in studies to result in score increases ranging from an average of 100 to 400 points. Taking multiple practice tests in test-like conditions is helpful for understanding what the actual test will be like. It is also important to identify the weaker areas and then focus on improving them for the greatest improvements.

Your Going Ivy team recognizes that your SAT test score is not an end result that exists in isolation. Instead, our tutors understand that your SAT score is one step on your way to securing admission into the school of your choice as well as to your future adult career. When you score the highest that you are able, you may increase your chances of gaining admission into a selective school or selective department or program within a school that might be prestigious in the eyes of your future employers. When schools attract applicants with high SAT scores, it also improves their rankings, making it important for you to stand out. You will also need to aim for top grades in your classes. When you are able to submit an application showing rigorous coursework, excellent grades and a high SAT score, your chances of admission to even the most elite schools will be enhanced.
