Story written by Megan Heller, Testing coordinator for Little Elm High School Newsletter
For the first time in Little Elm High School, every junior will be offered the chance to take the SAT® exam on a school day. Students typically had to sign up on their own to take the test on a Saturday at some unfamiliar location. This year, counselors will register every junior to take it on Wednesday, March 7 and the test will be free of charge! "We think this will allow ALL of our juniors the opportunity to show colleges they’re ready," wrote Heller.
Each student will be allowed to indicate on the test which four colleges, universities, or scholarship programs to send their scores for free. Additionally, students on the free and reduced lunch program will be able to indicate up to eight schools.
Students should have received an email from College Board with instructions on how to access their PSAT/NMSQT® scores from October, and on how to set up a College Board account. There, students will be allowed to take practice tests in preparation to the exam.
Why practice? According to an article found on College Board, a study of 250,000 seniors from the class of 2017 found that 20 hours on Khan Academy helped students increase their scores by an average of 115 points from the PSAT to the SAT. Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy helps students work on the areas they need it most. Khan Academy has eight full-length tests written by College Board, video lessons, and thousands of practice questions – all online so students can practice whenever and wherever they’d like. And it’s free! Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy can be found at satpractice.org.
