Early preparation is key! By studying for admissions exams and thinking about college choices earlier, you have many more options and interventions open to you. For instance, if your verbal score is weak, you have many more semesters to improve on it as a Freshman and Sophomore, as opposed to waiting until Junior or Senior year to fix it. Unfortunately, no matter how hard you work and how hands-on our instructors are, your scores can only increase so much in a short amount of time instead of years of practice.
By preparing early, you will also improve your chances of scoring well on the PSAT/NMSQT. The PSAT can be treated like a trial run for the SAT and even the ACT, but it’s more than just that. PSAT scores are used to award scholarships to National Merit Scholars.
