SAT Subject Test Tutoring
About SAT Subject Tests
SAT Subject Tests are single-subject, knowledge-based tests. As many as three can be taken in a single sitting and each test can be taken as often as you wish. Since you control the scores of each individual test, a logical strategy is to plan to take SAT Subject Tests on multiple dates. Each SAT Subject Test is scored on a 200 – 800 scale. Each test has its own conversion scale, and on some it is easier to earn high scores than it is on others.
Why Take SAT Subject Tests?
Some colleges require SAT Subject Tests, while other recommend or accept them. Either way, you should always give admissions officials as many reasons as possible to accept you. Taking SAT Subject Tests can help you to differentiate yourself from other candidates.
Only 8 -12 Hours of Tutoring
Because SAT Subject Tests are single subject exams, preparation for each requires far less tutoring than do either the SAT or the ACT. NC Global recommends 8 to 12 hours of focused tutoring.
Aren’t Fewer College Requiring SAT Subject Tests?
Yes, it is true that fewer and fewer and fewer colleges require SAT Subject Tests. All the more reason for you to take them! If fewer students are taking the SAT Subject Tests, there is greater opportunity for you to distinguish yourself from the pack! The more data points the better! Since colleges don’t like to make mistakes, they appreciate having as much information as possible on their admission candidates.
How Many SAT Subject Tests Should I Take?
NC Global recommends that you always take two or three tests in a single sitting so you can maximize your opportunity to earn the highest possible scores. Even if you aren’t yet confident in a subject, you can take the live test just for practice. That is because you control which individual scores are sent to colleges.
When Should I Take SAT Subject Tests?
SAT Subject Tests are offered six times per year, on the same dates as SATs, (except for March). Subject Tests based on single-year subjects (e.g. U.S. History, World History, and Chemistry) should be taken in May or June while those testing more generalized knowledge (e.g. Math and Literature) can be taken any time you feel ready. In fact, many ninth and tenth graders, take SAT Subject Tests.
