SAT PREP All seniors should have a College Board online account by now and are hopefully using it on a regular basis. Once you login to your account, you should be able to see your SAT scores. Under your SAT scores, there is an option to ‘Understand your Scores’ or ‘Send Your Scores.’ Cadets are encourage to click on the ‘Understanding your Scores’ and look at their strengths and weaknesses. If you click on the button that says “FREE SAT practice with Khan Academy,” cadets will be taken to the Khan Academy website where they can access their personalized SAT prep program. If you scored below a 550 on any portion of the SAT in April, you should consider taking them again in the fall. You can register to take the SAT through your College Board account. Before you pay to take the SAT again, be sure to review your spring 2016 scores and spend some time preparing for the SAT. SAT and ACT test dates are posted on the guidance calendar. Be sure to pay attention to the registration dates so you do not have to pay the late fee. Most colleges will “super score” which means they will take your BEST score for each section so it is always wise to take the SAT more than once (everyone has a bad test day once in a while). SAT and ACT fee waivers are available for cadets who qualify for free or reduced lunch. See Mrs. Certesio to get a fee waiver.
