Well it’s official. 223,400 students took the SAT on Saturday.

When you consider that 402,000 students were originally registered to take the test, 223,400 seems like a pretty low number.

But when you consider that exactly 0 students took the June SAT, nearly a quarter of a million students starts to seem pretty encouraging.

At test centers last weekend, Collegeboard took all the necessary COVID precautions.

Students and center staff were required to wear masks or protective face coverings for the duration of the test, and students were seated at least six feet apart.

Are there “Safe” Test Centers?

As we discussed in our last blog post, choosing the right test center that won’t cancel, is crucial if you want your student to actually be able to take the SAT.

While nothing is ever 100% certain, here is a list of test centers that did not cancel the the August SAT.

Main Line Suburbs

Great Valley HS, Malvern, PA
Plymouth Whitemarsh HS, Plymouth Meeting, PA

Bucks County

Central Bucks South, Warrington, PA
Central Bucks East, Doylestown, PA
Central Bucks West, Doylestown, PA

It’s not too late

Most regular decision deadlines are January 1st, but even most early decision deadlines are as late as November 1st. This means there are still 1-3 more opportunities to take the SAT and ACT for most students.

Does your student need help with the SAT or ACT?

Students who prep with us receive more acceptances, win higher financial aid packages, and gain confidence in other areas of life.

In your strategy session, we’ll develop a plan for your student to determine whether they should take the SAT or ACT, discuss which test dates are best, and create a roadmap moving forward.

I can’t say enough terrific things about Critical Point Test Prep! They helped my daughter with valuable test taking skills and time management. Her SAT test scores improved after working with them. They are professional and timely. The tutors are friendly and approachable. I will be using them again for my other student.

Nick Scoville at Critical Point did a fantastic job preparing my son for the SAT. My son’s content knowledge, test taking skills, and confidence increased consistently throughout the program. I highly recommend you give owner Andre Kiss a call. When he described the program to me, I knew it was the best place for my son. Money well spent.

I can't thank all the qualified people at Critical Point Test Prep enough. The techniques and strategies taught were extremely helpful. My son was able to score 200 points higher, which gave him the opportunity to apply to many more colleges. They really do want their students to succeed.

I have twins at Radnor high school applying to college this year. They had tried another local test prep service over the summer before their junior year which frankly was expensive and not helpful at all. Fortunately a friend told us about their experience with Critical Point and we tried them out. Both girls had a great experience with their tutor, raising their ACT score and, more importantly, learning much better study habits. Their tutor had a great attitude and adjusted his style to each girl addressing their specific needs. I highly recommend critical point test prep. Especially in this time of corona where everything is so uncertain, you need a strong calming presence for the testing portion!

Critical Point is absolutely FANTASTIC! This is not just a "tutoring center". They have a very sophisticated process to provide one on one guidance and feedback specific to your student. I was so impressed to see the metrics they use to determine areas that need improvement. Then they provide additional homework and coaching. My student was a terrible test taker, and they gave her the confidence and skills to ace her SAT the very first time. I HIGHLY recommend them!!

Fantastic tutoring center! They push their students to do better, and kept me on track during quarantine. I would not be where I'm at if it wasn't for Critical Point Test Prep! I would definitely recommend to any students interested in increasing their scores!

Andre does a great job of keeping the student focused on what areas you are lacking in, and helps you identify a genre for all your flaws to practice them. Additionally, his way of simplifying things with extremely simple examples of complicated questions helps the student really focus on the process of solving the problem. I did Andre for a year as a student and my SAT improved over 100 points between just my PSAT and my first SAT.
