just wondering, when did the sat test come about/ who has taken it here??
Im taking my first one saturday.. so nervous but ready!!!!!!!!!!
My SAT day was a disaster, lol. I forgot my ID card, so I had to use my driver's permit to get in. I took it up at UConn in an old classroom; it was about a 30 min. wait before the actual test started, people were talking to each other beforehand. I think they give everyone different sections so you don't cheat, but I can't be too sure as I didn't want to look up too many times. I took the essay part first, then the math and english sections. One thing you want to remember on the math is that a lot of the questions are about algebra and factoring (solving for 'x', etc.), so make sure you know a lot about that. As far as the english sections go, all I really remember is the definitions of words.
yeah we all had a different tests in the class, cuz when i was on section 3 (which was math) other people were doing an english section.
Im kind of scared on how i did, math was ok, critical reading was hard, and writing im really inconsistent at. On my practice tests i was scoring 1700-1900, and mostly above 1800 so im really hoping for above an 1800 here on my first try.. I can always get another chance so yeah, scores come out Dec 21!
Wow. I think those scores are excellent. Where do u want to go to school? Will u be a senior in sept?
Yeah im going to be a senior in september, and im not sure yet where i want to go to school. AP scores (if you score a 4 or 5 on an ap exam you get college credit) are out tomorrow, and i took U.S. history and english. Getting college credit on those might influence where I go as well. But as of now I feel like IVY schools are just way too much pressure and the competition would make me extremely stressed out. I might just go to Rutgers business school in New Brunswick but I'll see.
I only wish my son's scores were that high. They were high enough though to get him into a D1 school for baseball. He is contemplating a similar thing regarding pressure. He is not sure if he wants to go the D1 route. College sports are such a commitment in any level but we hear D1 can be ridiculous. I've told him not to base his decision on scholarship money. I want him to do what is right for him to have a college experience he will look back on with happy memories. I worked two jobs even while student teaching. I look back and only see a tired human being that participated in zero university activities. that's not what I want for him. Congratulations on a brilliant effort and impressive results.
