On September 24th I will be taking the pSAT as an eight grader.
I am very nervous as this determines my highschool courses.
This will affect my future!!!!!
Do you guys have any tips to prepare? Or you can share you experience of taking the SAT.
I took the PSATthe end of last year. I found it to be easy (maybe because I had already taken the ACT), and had plenty of time to double and tripple check my work on the math section, and the reading and english sections also wern't that difficult. I atually just got my scores last week.
The PSAT is supposed to be just for practice, thats strange your school is making it affect your high school classes.
I checked out a practice book from the library, and I think just understanding the format of the test and the types of questions will help you immensly. Doing a timed practice test in each of the subjects will help you get the hang of managing your time and not spending too long on difficult problems.
If you are already a good student in math and english, and you know how the test works and can manage your time, you should be able to do well on the test with out doing that much to prepare.
