The TASC Science exam is a part of the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) series that students in some states may take to earn the equivalent of a high school diploma if they never graduated. If you're experiencing difficulty in preparing for this portion of the test, Varsity Tutors can refer you to a TASC Science tutor to help you prepare.
Here are some of the concepts you may go over during TASC Science tutoring sessions, as well as how much weight they carry on the exam's rubric:
- Physical Sciences (Solutions, Energy, Waves) 20%
- Life Sciences (Cell Structure, Genetics, Ecology) 50%
- Earth and Space Science (Solar System, Geology) 30%
The exam consists of 48 multiple-choice questions plus an extended response prompt over 75 minutes, which doesn't give you much time per question. Your TASC Science tutor may share some proven test-taking strategies to help you guess and move on instead of getting stuck on a single item. For example, some of the possible answers probably seem out of place even if you don't know the correct response, so those can be eliminated. You may also read something in a subsequent question that reminds you what the right answer is on a previous one.
