Fred’s Answer

The SAT is not a pass/fail kind of test. You get a score between 200 and 800 (it may have changed in the 40 years since I took it). Different schools look for different scores. Something like Yale will expect a higher score than a state school.

There are books, courses, and probably websites you can use to help get a better handle on the test. Speak with your guidance or college counselor at school and see what they recommend. Your school may even offer some sessions or practice exams.

Hi Bainat,

You have a great question! Maybe you can study with a friend. Therefore you can build self-confidence! You can also read many books you enjoy, but make sure you understand what the author is writing. Here is a practical article I found on the websites. Make sure you take a look at it!

Hi Bainat,

There are many SAT prep books that can help you navigate the test. This will provide you tips and tools on how to understand the SAT. Once you understand what types of questions are being asked, you can uncover a pattern and can make good "guesstimates". Also, to improve reading comprehension, try reading literature that you find interesting in your spare. It can improve your vocabulary, become a nice hobby, and extend attention spans especially when we're always on our phone/in front of a screen.
