SAT Test Prep
For many students, getting into a top-choice college and possibly even earning a scholarship begins with great SAT test scores. Livius Prep test prep programs provide the study material, test strategies and tutoring you need to succeed.
The best approach is to ensure you have the knowledge and understanding of the concepts that will be tested on the SAT. You will typically earn higher scores once you’ve taken the classes that cover the material on the tests. We recommend getting some extra test prep tutoring targeted at any weaknesses or subjects you may not have thoroughly covered in school.
Taking SAT practice tests under real conditions and having your results reviewed by a Livius Prep expert is a great way to see where to focus your tutoring.
SAT Subject Test Prep
There are 20 SAT Subject Tests in five subject areas. While many colleges and universities do not require SAT Subject Tests, a good score can demonstrate your mastery of a particular subject and make your college application stand out.
In general, you should select those subjects you feel you will do well in. Be careful not to haphazardly take SAT Subject Tests. A poor score may actually counteract a strong grade on your high school transcript in the same subject.
When Should You Take SAT and SAT Subject Tests?
The SAT and SAT Subject Tests are each offered six times during a school year. In general, the College Board administers the tests on Saturdays, and tests are more frequent during the fall. You can take up to three Subject Tests on any test date, but you cannot take the SAT and an SAT Subject Test on the same day. We encourage you to review our Test Date Calendar.
The most important factor is your college admissions deadlines. You need to make sure your test scores are ready when you apply. If you are applying for an early decision, an academic merit scholarship, or have been recruited for athletics, you should focus on hitting your target SAT score and GPA by the end of your junior year, with a plan to take your chosen test at least twice before the college’s deadline.
