SAT Tutors | SAT Test Prep

The SAT is something every high schooler dreads, yet it remains a largely unavoidable part of the college admissions process. The exam serves as a uniform assessment of students’ academic level and ability, and most colleges require it to be considered for admission. It’s not a new invention either. In fact, the SAT has been administered for nearly 100 years. Since its debut in 1926, millions of students have taken the SAT as the next step to a brighter future.

It’s normal to be anxious about the SAT. However, with the right preparation, your child can get the score they need to get into the school they want. GoStudent has the best SAT prep out there, and we’ll support your student through their SAT journey. We’re here to tell you how.

What is the SAT?

The SAT, originally known as the “Scholastic Aptitude Test” is owned, developed, and administered by the College Board, a nonprofit organization founded to expand access to higher education.

The exam has changed many times over the years. Currently, it is comprised of three tests:

  • Reading: This test assesses students’ reading comprehension. Students read five different passages and answer corresponding multiple-choice questions. This section also tests students on vocabulary.
  • Writing and language: In this test, students read passages and find mistakes and weaknesses in the text. This is also multiple choice.
  • Math: This test assesses students’ skills in multiple areas of math–algebra, problem-solving/data analysis, and readiness for college-level math. Most questions are multiple-choice, but some require writing in answers. Students are allowed to use a calculator for a portion of the math exam.

Students register for the SAT online by creating a College Board account. The exam is administered seven times an academic year at official test sites nationwide (usually local high schools). Students can take the SAT as many times as they want. Many opt to first take it in the spring of their Junior Year, and then again in the Fall of their Senior Year. This way, they can improve their scores in time for college admissions deadlines. Fee waivers and testing accommodations are available for qualified students.

How is the SAT scored?

Students’ total SAT score is a number between 400 and 1600. The total score is the sum of two section scores: Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (made up of the Reading and Writing tests), and Math. Each section is weighted equally and is scored from 200-800. According to the College Board, the average score in 2019 was 1050, and a score of 1350 or higher would put a student in the top 10% of all test takers.

SAT graders first give each section a raw score, based on how many questions they got right. Then, this raw score is converted into a scaled score. There are different versions of the SAT administered at the same test site on the same day–this is done to prevent cheating. Because some versions may be somewhat easier than others, converting the raw scores to the scaled scores ensures everyone is assessed equally.

On their score reports, students are also given a breakdown of scores of the three individual tests, as well as cross-test scores (drawn from all 3 tests) that assess analysis in science and analysis in history/social studies. In addition, students are given seven subscores that assess how well they did on the specific types of questions appearing on the SAT.

After students receive their score reports, they can send them directly to the colleges they are applying to through their online College Board account. Individual colleges and universities usually have a minimum SAT score required for acceptance, or to be considered for scholarships. However, schools still view applicants holistically, so a lower score doesn’t mean a student is doomed! Yet if your high schooler is after that elusive perfect score, GoStudent’s expert SAT prep will help.

The best SAT prep is to practice, practice, practice! College Board offers official online practice tests and books for students to become more familiar with the exam, and it’s likely your student’s high school offers SAT prep as well.
