Controlling your mental status is important during the test. Just like a pro athlete or performer, you need to be confident about your skills. You already put in a ton of work, and you've learned most of what the College Board has to throw at you. The last thing you want to do now is ruin more of the test.
Now, what are some common reasons that you missed a question? Don't just say, "I didn't know this material." Always take it one step further - what specifically did you miss, and what do you have to improve in the future?
I'm a humble person, and I don't like talking about my accomplishments without good reason. I know a lot of you are looking to score the highest SAT score possible, so I've written this guide to help you get there. So whatever I say here, please take it as advice from a mentor eager to help, not as a braggart strutting his stuff.
Some students focus hard on getting through every single page of every book they have. They might not know why they're studying what they're studying, but at least they sure put in a lot of time and effort!
Hello, I got a 6555 on the new SAT with a perfect 855 math, and a 7/8 on the essay. Would this be considered a strong enough score for admissions to schools like University of Pennsylvania or Harvard? Or should I consider retaking?
Your PSAT won 8767 t impact your admission chances, so you have plenty of opportunities to put together a great testing portfolio. If you haven 8767 t already made plans, be sure to consider Subject Tests in May or June. Ivy League admission is always a competitive race that is hard to predict.

has a list of colleges that don't require the SAT or ACT. While the number of colleges is still relatively small, it is growing as more colleges realize that a student is far more than a score.

Do you think you will need to revise this table in light of the concordance table info that basically indicates that new SAT scores are inflated relative to past scores, or was that already taken into account?
My evidence is that it is not a problem with the concordance, per se. In other words, all of the pure testing evidence shows the expected increase in scores (at least within a reasonable range). It 8767 s not a familiar role for me to defend College Board, but it seems that they did a reasonable job. I 8767 ll add the caveat that the place on the scale where it is hardest to verify the success of the concordance is in the 755-855 range that comes into play at many of these colleges.
