Berkeley Test Scores

Students living in Berkeley have to take several assessments throughout their academic career. From their freshmen to junior year in high school, students need to complete the California Standards Tests (CSTs). The performance on these exams determines the appropriate academic programs a student will pursue going forward. These exams challenge students in English, math, science, and social studies, and they also cover some advanced subjects like physics, geometry, and algebra. Seniors who are ready to graduate must first pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) before they can receive their diploma. This test is untimed and consists of two sections: math and English.

Varsity Tutors can help you find an Anaheim tutor to assist in understanding coursework, preparing for upcoming tests and projects, and developing a greater appreciation for the learning experience. Moreover, working with a private tutor can help you or your child improve study habits, learn critical organizational skills, and learn about strategies that can sharpen test-taking skills.
