How to Use These SAT Test Date Projections

These charts make it easy to figure out your best dates to take the SAT. We typically recommend  two SAT sittings. Your first test is a dress rehearsal or a dry run. Your second test is what we call your “Go for the Gold” test. This is the SAT where you can aim to hit your target score.  Sometimes students take third and fourth tests–especially if they’re trying to polish or improve their superscore.

Our students average +250 point improvements on their composite SAT. If we use superscores, our students are averaging +300 point gains.

SAT TEST PREP

You will benefit from our extensive experience helping students maximize their scores on the SAT. For over 15 years, we have been developing individualized tutoring programs and proven test-prep strategies to unlock the elusive nature of these tests.
