Start preparing for the SAT and ACT the summer after 10th grade or early in 11th grade.

Kweller suggests: Take the ACT and SAT 3 times throughout 11th grade.

Take the SAT once in October (most schools make you sit for the PSAT in October anyway) then take it again in January then again in March.

Leave May and June of 11th grade to focus on taking multiple SAT 2 subject tests.

You can always super-score or score choice your highest scores for the majority of colleges you apply to.

Statistically, the more times you take the SAT and ACT, the better you’ll do.

Do not waste your time testing and retesting in Grade 12 because you have to spend your time during early senior year applying for colleges and scholarships.

There comes a point where you need to STOP testing; that point is at the end of grade 11, by June at the latest.

Senior year is stressful enough, and you should not spend that time retaking the SAT, a test you should have taken at least 3 times by the end of grade 11.

There is no such thing as a head start, but there is a RIGHT start.

Kweller Suggests SUMMER after 10th grade:

 Kweller Test Prep SAT Camp Full time

 

11th Grade Plan for Fall Testing:

11th Grade Plan for Spring Testing:

August-  1st SAT plus Writing (New Test Date!)

March – 3rd SAT plus Writing

September – 1st ACT plus Writing

April – 3rd ACT plus Writing

October – 2nd SAT and PSAT-NMSQT 

May –  SAT 2 Subject Tests

February 2nd– ACT plus Writing (in NJ!)

June –  SAT 2 Subject Tests

Essay Prompt

When is The Best Time to take the SAT?

I am asked this question regularly, and would like to properly address it. First and foremost, the SAT is offered in the following months: October, November, December, January, March, May and June.

The Test Month Options for the school year are as follows:

August (as of 2017)

October

November

December

January (No longer offered)

March

May

June

Before we get into the best time to take the SAT, I must address what I call the “Score Choice Scam.” With the new Score Choice policy (which is very tricky, and I will elaborate on it in another article), students are informed that they may take the SAT as many times as they’d like, and just have to submit the scores they want to the schools they choose.

Score Choice sounds easy, right? Nope! Please do not be fooled by the College Board’s sneaky tactics. ETS (the Educational Testing Service, aka “Evil Testing Serpents”) is squeezing more money out of each and every tester. Think about it; instead of taking the test one or two times (and paying for the test just one or two times), kids are misled and parents are duped into now taking and paying for the test six or seven times. ETS benefits tremendously by keeping parents in the dark. Instead of paying $51 once or twice to take the SAT ($102 in total), kids are now encouraged to take the test over and over again. Six tries will be around $300! Oh, there are such things as fee waivers, by the way, but those are scarce and hard to find—and there is no way that you will get away with using a waiver for six attempts at taking the test. Guidance counselors receive a cap on how many they can distribute and have to do a careful accounting of each fee waiver.

It is imperative to know that the rumors you hear about score choice are not entirely true. You can’t keep your SAT scores a secret from some very prestigious schools. Many top schools, such as Georgetown University, do not participate in score choice AT ALL (see http://uadmissions.georgetown.edu/scorechoicepolicy. cfm: “Georgetown University does NOT participate in the Score Choice options available through the College Board or the similar program through Educational Testing Service (ETS) and “Georgetown requires that you submit scores from ALL test sittings of the SAT, ACT or SAT Subject Tests.”)

The list gets longer. In fact, many top schools, not just the Ivy League, want to see ALL student SAT scores, not merely the top ones in each section (sorry to be the one to have to tell you this). Here is a list of just some of the colleges that do not participate in score choice—which means they will require ALL SAT SCORES when you apply to their college: Stanford, Cornell, University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown, and Yale. There are many more schools, but that’s a lot of info for now.

Now back to business. Before I reveal the “magic month” (please don’t scroll down & cheat!!!) I need to address the detriments of receiving and relying on bad advice. Students often go to their friends or teachers to ask when the best time to take the SAT is. Many college advisors and teachers alike tell students to take the SAT (or ACT) when they are ready. They tend not to specify or explain a strategic month to take the test. The student is left to figure out on his own when to take the test, and the student wrongfully decides to take it in June of Junior Year.

Teachers tend to tell students to take the SAT when they are ready. “Just take it when it feels right!” they often say. While the person giving such advice may have very good intentions, I have yet to meet students who, with certainty, felt completely “ready” to take a 3.5-hour long, 10 consecutive-section exam bright and early on a Saturday or Sunday morning. In fact, many students leave the SAT wishing they invested even more hours in preparing for the test, no matter how much they studied in advance. Taking the test “when ready” is generally the free advice you get from friends and counselors. Please be wary of this.

With that being said, is it true that some months of the year are better than others to take the SAT? The answer is YES.

Hands down, the best time to take the SAT is during junior year (11th Grade) of high school. When? The earlier, the better. Taking the SAT as a junior for the very first time (officially) is optional… and strategic. This means that you should prepare all summer long for the test so that you can ultimately ace it. 11th Grade is an ideal time to take the SAT. Kweller Prep offers 8-week intensive SAT prep courses to give you structure and teach strategies as you prep for the SAT from Grades 10-11. By then, you should already have taken math courses such as algebra and geometry, be able to comfortably handle trigonometry and functions, and are comfortable with a TI-84 or TI-Inspire.

11th Grade is also often a student’s first peek into near-adulthood maturity; the end of high school is near, and he/she is ready to leave the nest and go off to college. Parents will notice a more cooperative child during his/her 11th Grade. Students tend to want to do better in school during this time, because college is right at their fingertips.

October of Senior Year:

Ideally, taking the SAT for the first time Junior Year is perfect, perfect, perfect. Then, taking it a second time January of Junior Year is beyond ideal. By March of Junior Year, students can sit for the SAT for the third and last time. Here are the reasons why you should not take the SAT for the first time in October of Senior Year.

Taking the SAT as a senior is flat-out painful. Many students get trapped into taking the October SAT in their senior year (as elaborated upon in-detail above).

I have several bits of advice to offer as to why October is NOT the optimal time to take the SAT.

First, the SAT is scored on a curve.

Curving a test means that your score is rescaled, and during October, the readjustment of scores is NOT tipped in your favor. (See: http://academics.hamilton.edu/biology/smiller/curve.html)

Normalization also requires that overly high scores be adjusted downward for conformity. Either way, data are distorted and some information is lost. Look at some data, and then consider all the implications of “grading on a curve’.”

When is the BEST time to take the SAT for the first time?

   August BEFORE JUNIOR YEAR:

STARTING 2017, THE COLLEGE BOARD WILL OFFER THE SAT TEST IN AUGUST. THIS IS AMAZING NEWS! THIS IS AN A+ OPPORTUNITY TO GET  THE SAT TEST OVER WITH BEFORE YOU START 11TH GRADE SO YOU CAN FOCUS ON YOUR CORE CLASSES, AP CLASSES, INTERNSHIPS, AP’S AND COLLEGE NOW CLASSES.

THE BEST PART IS THAT YOU CAN ATTEND KWELLER TEST PREP AND STUDY ALL SUMMER AND TAKE THE SAT A WEEK AFTER OUR INTENSIVE SUMMER CAMP ENDS! SIGN UP, ENJOY, AND GOOD LUCK!

Good luck navigating the ever so convoluted college admissions process!
