An SAT score can make a big difference. It makes an especially big difference when the result means a student can attend college. Research shows that studying 6-8 hours with Khan Academy’s free Official SAT Practice is associated with an average increase of 90 points from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT, compared to a 60-point increase for students not using it. Score gains were consistent regardless of gender, family income, race, ethnicity, and parental education level. That’s particularly important for students who don’t have access to other expensive test prep materials.
In 2019, 2.7 million students signed up for Khan Academy’s Official SAT Practice—a 17% increase from the year before. Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy is by far the top choice of students preparing for the SAT. In a survey conducted by the College Board of over 65,000 SAT test takers, nearly four times as many students said they practiced with Khan Academy’s Official SAT Practice instead of paying for commercial test prep.
