What is the deal with the New SAT?

Timeline: the revised SAT, or [rSAT], will be offered 7 times a year beginning March, 2016. The upcoming PSAT in October will be a shortened version of the [rSAT]–this PSAT is optional and scores come back 6-8 weeks after the test is administered at your high school.  Study Hut will offer the new [rSAT] in the fall alongside the ACT so students are able to experience the style of the new exam.

How can Study Hut Tutoring help?

Study Hut Tutoring offers free practice tests for the new SAT.  This means that once you fill out our contact form or give a call, we can sign you up for a free, full-length new SAT exam.  Once you’ve completed the exam, you get to go home, hang tight, and wait for us to grade the exam.  Don’t worry, we will call you once the exam is graded to set up a free 20-30 minute consultation to go over the entire exam.  During the meeting we will look at all of your strengths and weaknesses, and recommend the best course of action for you based on your score goal, your desired university you would love to attend, your current schedule, and how long you wish to train for the test.  We look forward to getting you geared up and ready for test day.
