If you have children that are juniors in Connecticut public schools, then they will be taking the SAT as part of Connecticut’s mandatory high school graduation requirement. Most are taking the test on March 21. That test will be a wonderful “first test” for many. This means that even if they have engaged in SAT test prep most will not score optimally. Research is abundant showing that most students perform better on their second or third try at the SATs. There are a myriad of reasons but I simply call it “the shock of the test.” The combination of the length of the test, the pacing of sections, nervousness, and other performance issues almost always means the first test will not lead to the student’s highest SAT score.
Even students who have completed our Winter SAT-ACT Mastery Seminar and thus are the best prepared SAT test-takers in Shoreline, CT will likely do better on their second test.
The best time to prep is now and the best way to do so is through our Spring SAT-ACT Mastery seminar held in both Old Saybrook and Madison.
