Your Ultimate Registration Prep Checklist

When preparing and planning to take the SAT, pay attention to the tips on this checklist and you’ll be fine.

Choose The Best Time To Take Your SAT

Many students and parents ask us when the best time to take the SAT is. Conventional wisdom says that students should take the SAT at these times:

  • Spring semester of their junior year
  • Summer between junior and senior years

The idea is that after having completed junior year math classes, students will have mastered the material they need for the test.

If they don’t like their score, then they can retake the test in the fall of their senior year.  Why? Because their scores are received in time for college application deadlines.

There Isn’t A One-Size-Fits-All Approach

This generic approach to planning your SAT date does account for individual circumstances.

Students have lots of other things going on during high school that can prevent them from preparing properly for a test.

These things include:

  • Extracurricular organizations
  • Service work
  • Social life

All of these obligations can overwhelm a high school student.

Pick An SAT Date That Allows You To Prepare

If extracurricular activities during junior year leave you with no free time to study, then recognize and accept that fact. Pick a different testing date, rather than take the test when you aren’t prepared enough for it.

The SAT is a potentially life-changing opportunity – score well enough on it, and new possibilities will open up for you. From scholarships to admission to the world’s most competitive colleges, so much depends upon your test scores.

Do yourself a favor and give the SAT the time and attention it deserves. Otherwise, you will not score as well as you could.

How To Find The Best SAT Date For You

Your best date is the one that falls in the sweet spot between having time to prepare and completing the necessary coursework to do well on the test.

Students need a foundation of knowledge in the test material in order to do well. For instance, an eighth-grade student can benefit from a prep course but is unlikely to their maximum SAT score.

Why? Because he or she would not have completed the necessary math courses. Therefore, it is important to choose a test date after you complete the courses needed to succeed on the SAT.

Most students complete these courses in their junior year. Therefore, you should not take the SAT earlier than the spring of your junior year.

Give Yourself Enough Time To Prepare

Make no mistake, you won’t do well on the SAT unless you put in significant SAT prep work. Choose a test date that occurs after a two-to-three-month period where you have time to study almost every day.

This is no small task. Most high school students are overwhelmed with time commitments. However, the students who find time to study get into the best schools and receive the most scholarship money.

Create Your Own Sweet Spot

If there doesn’t seem to be any time where you study almost every day, then make time. Don’t take the test without proper preparation.

Students who do not spend time preparing do not do as well on it, period. Students who do prepare, and do well, position themselves well for success later in life.

Students who prepare properly will:

  • Be admitted to more prestigious colleges and universities
  • Be awarded more scholarship money
  • Receive better job offers from companies

The truth is simple: you are cheating yourself if you don’t make time to prepare for the SAT.

Spend Your Prep Time Wisely

You’ve committed to carving out two-to-three months of studying every day. Now, make the most of that time.

The SAT is a predictable, boring, repetitive test. You can master it before stepping foot into the testing center. Prep Expert’s SAT Courses can get you there with our industry-leading 200 point Score Improvement Guarantee.

Our courses are carefully designed to give students the most help in the most time-efficient way possible. Our courses are demanding for students – but our results speak for themselves.

Learn From The Best Instructors

Our instructors are 99th percentile SAT scorers. This means:

  • They know the material covered on the SAT as well as anyone
  • They are experienced and talented at communicating this material to students

Don’t entrust your SAT prep to an instructor who is anything less than an actual expert in this material. There is too much on the line.

Retest If You Need To Do So

If you take the SAT and don’t do as well as you’d like, take it again! A bad score doesn’t need to end your highest aspirations for college.

Colleges routinely admit students whose SAT scores improved after multiple test administrations. They understand the prep process enough to know that students may not do themselves justice the first time around.

If You Want Different Results, Change Your Actions!

It is okay to retake the test if you believe you can do better. But if your preparation doesn’t change, don’t expect any improvement.

If you are going to take the test all over again, don’t shortchange yourself by not preparing properly a second time. Plan well, work hard, and trust the experts in test prep to equip you with the information you need.
