Last Test Days for High School Seniors 2019
With college application deadlines looming, many high school seniors are worried about their standardized test scores. Many students take tests in the early fall and have recently gotten scores back. For many students and their parents, this is what they consider to be the final scores that they will have to use for their applications – book your Anaheim private test prep tutor today.
This is not correct. There are still test dates available, and there is still time for intervention to try to improve test scores. In particular, if this was your student’s first time taking the test, there is a good chance that they can improve with a second test. Or, if your student hasn’t done any dedicated test preparation or practice tests, they are likely to be able to improve by preparing and taking the test again.
First, here are the test dates still available for the SAT, ACT, and SAT Subject Tests:
These tests will report scores to the schools you apply to before regular decision application deadlines. The December tests are often overlooked because students and parents don’t realize that a senior can take these tests and receive the scores on time.
Note that the registration deadline for all three tests is coming soon on November 8th. If you are planning to take any of these standardized tests again in December, make sure you register before that date. If you have missed the November deadline, then you can still register for the SAT or SAT Subject Tests as late as November 26th, but you will have to pay a late registration fee. For the ACT, you have until November 22nd to register with the late fee.
A standardized test can be effective even without months of practice (see the SAT tutoring timeline here). Consider a private tutor if you or your student are looking to get the most that they can out of these test scores and to optimize their applications. This is often a very busy time for high school seniors, even without the extra pressure of studying and taking an important exam. Having extra accountability and dedicated study time, such as with an experienced tutor, can help remedy these issues and make the process easier for them while still being highly effective.
Whether it’s the SAT or ACT, our experienced Anaheim test prep tutors are here to help you succeed.
