How much should you raise your SAT score?

You’ve taken your PSAT. You’ve done one or two SAT practice tests. The results are in, and now you have some numbers – what do you do with them? How many points you should aim to increase your score?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer. Many tutors and tutoring services discuss results in terms of numbers, aiming to increase student scores upwards of 100 – 200 points. We recommend instead that you look at your individual trouble areas to determine how much work needs to be done to make meaningful score improvement.

Following a targeted approach to studying is more effective than reviewing all of the material again, particularly if reviewed in the same way. As a general rule, Prepwise instructors aim to bridge the gap between where the student is and the maximum score by at least 50%. In other words, if your score is 1800 (out of 2400), we will help you cross 2100.

Reaching a goal like this takes dedication and time from both you and your instructor. Thanks to our instructors’ depth of experience and our individualized methods of teaching, each of our students has met that goal – and exceeded it.
