Juniors, it’s getting around that time when we have to take the SAT test. Of course, testing can be very stressful at times, and managing your time through the week to find times to study can be a bit difficult as well. Here are some tips and test taking strategies to help you ace the test next Tuesday.

The first thing that you can do would be to look for programs offering SAT practice. Taking a few practice tests and doing problems similar to those that may come up on the test. This can be helpful in many ways, it’s a good way to brush up on grammar rules as well as learning testing strategies that can help you get your highest score. Some other things that could be very helpful is to set a target goal for yourself, of what you hope to achieve. A good way to see what you need to brush up on is by looking at your reading and math scores separately, and look at the subcategories of each section, that show individual skills. Yocelen Pina, ‘19 says, “I found out that one of the things that I struggled with on the the math section was analyzing data on graphs by looking at the analysis of my score on the College Board website. Once you know what you need help on, you can start working on it more and improve.” In addition to that little things that can help a lot is to read the questions on the reading section before you read the passage so that you know what to look for. Another thing if you’re short on time would be to only read the first and last paragraph thoroughly, and to make sure to read the last sentence of every paragraph if you don’t think you’ll have time to read the whole passage.
