SAT Subject Tests

SAT Subject Tests

Not all schools require the SAT subject tests, but taking and doing well on them might help you stand out among other applicants.

If you want to get admitted to an elite school, you will need to be sure to choose the right SAT subject tests to take and get a great score. These tests are usually an hour, and many top colleges like to see that you’ve taken at least two. The SAT subject tests can help you to make your applications stronger by letting you showcase your skills in a few areas. The most elite schools also either strongly recommend or require these tests, making it very important for you to do well on them. Preparation is key to gaining the top scores on the SAT subject tests. When you hire an expert tutor from Going Ivy, you may be able to improve your scores so that you earn the highest scores of which you are capable.

Why It’s Important to Get SAT Subject Test Tutoring

There are many colleges that take SAT subject tests into considerations when they are making admissions decisions. Even if the school that you are applying to does not expressly require the tests, taking and doing well on the subject tests might help you to stand out among other applicants. These tests might also be used by the schools to place you in advanced courses so that you are able to skip the introductory ones or fulfill requirements outright.

It is important that you aim for the highest score that you can on your SAT subject tests. In general, you should try to obtain a score that is in line with the percentile you received on your SAT or ACT. You should also make certain that you know which tests to take. Many highly selective schools either require or recommend that students take a math subject test along with one or two other subjects. You should understand that it’s better for you to take the math level 2 subject test than the math level 1 test, however. A highly selective college may not be very impressed by a good score on the level 1 exam. When you come to Going Ivy, you can get help from your SAT subject test tutor with choosing the tests that you should take and preparing for them. The subject tests may not directly correspond to the SAT or the ACT sections, but research has shown that students who choose to take SAT subject tests receive average SAT scores that are 100 points higher than students who do not take the subject tests.
