The NC Global 50-Point Plan for SAT

Indeed, NC Global is the only company in the nation to combine the Socratic learning methodology with Neil Chyten’s strategies, a highly effective and powerful combination, to master the SAT. Maximum class size is 12 students.

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 test dates. Each SAT Subject Test is scored on a 200 – 800 scale.

8 -12 Hours of Tutoring or 10 Hours of Class Time

Because SAT Subject Tests are single subject exams, preparation for each requires far less tutoring or class time than do either the SAT or the ACT. NC Global recommends 8 to 12 hours of strategically focused online tutoring or 10 hours of classroom time.

Why Take SAT Subject Tests?

Some colleges require SAT Subject Tests, while others recommend them. With only a handful of exceptions among thousands of US colleges, SAT Subject Test scores are considered if and when they are included in the application. NC Global strongly recommends that you differentiate yourself from other candidates by taking the SAT Subject Tests in areas that are best suited to highlight your strengths.

Aren’t Fewer Colleges 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. With fewer students taking the SAT Subject Tests, there is greater opportunity for you to separate yourself from other candidates. Colleges don’t like to make mistakes, so they tend to reward students who have more positive data points, such as SAT Subject Test scores.

How Many SAT Subject Tests Should I Take?

NC Global recommends that you always take three tests in a single sitting. By taking the tests in groups of three, 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. Think of this strategy as having as many darts as possible to break a balloon—one may do it, but two or three gives you a much better chance of hitting or exceeding your target scores.

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 generally acquired knowledge (e.g. Math and Literature) can be taken any time you feel ready. In fact, a large number of ninth and tenth graders take SAT Subject Tests and do quite well.  This frees up time later to focus on other factors such as ACT, SAT, and GPA.
