Coronavirus Update: This course has been postponed. Please contact us if you are interested in having your child take this course in preparation for the August 29, 2020 Math Level 2 SAT Exam.
This course consists of two 3.5-hour sessions for a total of 7 hours of instruction. All classes will be held in Armonk. An experienced Math teacher will cover all test topics in an easy-to-understand format. The classes will be held in May 2020. The Math Level 2 SAT Subject Test will be given on Saturday, June 6, 2020.
Tuition for this 7-hour course is $610.
11th Graders Please Note:
The SAT Subject tests are offered on the same exact days as the May and June SAT. Juniors taking both the SAT and the SAT Subject Test(s) this Spring must plan accordingly. This review course is designed to prep students for the June SAT Subject Test, therefore students would have to take the SAT exam in May.
Important Reminder Regarding College Board’s Test Cancellation Policy:
If you are taking 2-3 SAT Subject tests on the same test day, you cannot cancel just one test score. Your scores for ALL Subject Tests taken on that date will be canceled — unless the cancellation is caused by equipment failure during a test.

Format and Content of Test
The Mathematics Level 2 Subject Test covers the same material as the Mathematics Level 1 test — with the addition of trigonometry and elementary functions (precalculus). If you performed well in these courses, taking this test gives you the opportunity to highlight your abilities and showcase your interest in higher-level mathematics.
Recommended Preparation: More than three years of college-preparatory mathematics, including two years of algebra, one year of geometry, and elementary functions (precalculus) or trigonometry or both.
How the Test is Scored
Students have 60 minutes to answer 50 multiple choice questions. Each questions has five answer choices. For each correct answer, students are given one point. For each wrong answer, they lose ¼ of a point so there is a penalty for guessing. If they omit a question, it is not counted. After all the points are totaled, their paper is given a Raw Score. The Raw Score is then converted to an equivalent College Board score, which ranges from a low of 200 to a high of 800 points.
What is Score Choice?
Score Choice gives students the option to choose the SAT scores that they send to colleges. This allows students to put their best foot forward on test day by giving them flexibility and control over their scores. Score Choice is optional, and if students choose not to use it, all scores will automatically be sent to the colleges the student applies to. Please be aware – not all colleges and universities honor Score Choice. We recommend that students and parents research the admission requirements for all of the schools the student is considering applying to.
When Should a Student Take the Test?
Most students who are enrolled in a review course or who work with a private tutor opt to take both the May and June exams. Students tend to approach the May exam as a practice test. They can then use the next few weeks to continue to study and take practice tests before retaking the test in June.
Note: This strategy will NOT work if a student has to take the SAT in May.
Services for Students with Disabilities
If your child gets testing accommodations, such as extended time, in their IEP or 504 plan, they may qualify for those same accommodations on the SAT II exam as well. Often times, plans/programs developed at schools to meet local needs do not align with the College Board Guidelines. If this is the case, you have two options: to work with your school officials to ensure that your disability documentation includes all the information identified in the guidelines, or to submit your disability documentation with the Student Eligibility Form and have the College Board review it to determine the appropriate accommodations.
The Student Eligibility Form can be submitted online.
College Board often requires results from diagnostic tests that your child has never taken. In order to get all of the paperwork and possible additional testing complete in time you must act now!!

* Byram Hills High School is not a test center so students should register as soon as possible to ensure that they get their desired test location.
When registering for the Biology SAT II exam, do NOT opt for and pay for the “Question-and-Answer Service”. It only applies to the SAT Reasoning Test and not the subject tests.
