Chyten’s Study3 (2:1) is a specially designed instructional format that optimizes teaching while tapping into peer learning opportunities. It is a great way for students to not only learn, practice and master their course(s) but also develop good study habits.
Given that most of the students take SAT and/or ACT more than once in order to get their optimal score, one of the most common questions that many students and parents have is which scores to share with colleges and how to do so. Collegeboard and ACT give students the flexibility to choose which scores (by test date for the SAT and ACT and by individual tests for the SAT Subject Tests™) to send to colleges. However, the main caveat is that this must be done in accordance with an institution’s stated score-use practice. This practice is known as Score Choice.
Collegeboard is embarking upon a complete overhaul of the SAT and the intended changes will be introduced in the Spring 2016. Information provided by Collegeboard indicates that this ‘New SAT’ will not look anything like the ‘Old SAT’.(Comparison Between New Vs. Current SAT)
Based on the timelines published by the Collegeboard, Class of 2017(10th graders) will have the biggest impact from this change in SAT.
As with anything else, you have many options available for test preparation. Making the right choice is a critical time and money decision. Your student deserves a serious fact-based consideration in picking the right training course.
