SAT I: Critical Reading 660, Math 800, Writing 720 (10/2008)
SAT II: Chemistry 800, Math Level 2 800, Physics 800 (11/2008)
And I got rejected by all my colleges, all 8 of them. I guess I can safely conclude that I suck at essays, big time.
I am in the 11th grade and I am about to take my first SAT on Saturday. I am a little nervous/worried, and if you guys have any tips or advice for me that would be great and much appreciated.
Also, if you want to post your first time SAT score and then your combined best score you can. I am just interested to see how other people in this community did.
Heh. I'm taking it on Saturday, but I'm in 12'th grade.
Basically, the easy q's are in the the beg. of each section, and the hard ones at the end.
Also. Relax when taking it, and have hot cocoa. It helps.
It's a good read. Some interesting stuff by Tyson Mao too. And my post (last one in the thread) pretty much shows how little your SAT score matters to colleges.

My advice is to study for it 2 months in advance, especially grammar rules, then take it, hope you do well, and never deal with the College Board ever again unless you have some AP tests. My friend who got a 2350 is taking it again this Saturday (his birthday) simply because he got a 760 on math due to one stupid mistake. Crazy. I could probably do quite a bit better on writing and reading now, but I just don't care enough to take it again.
Rest well the night before (rest your hands, no cubing marathons!). Good luck!
You can take the SAT multiple times. This is your first time, so just relax and do your best. If you don't do well, give it a little more and take it again in a few months. If you do take it again, check your results and see which parts you need to concentrate on more than others. This is what I plan to do, I'll probably take my first one in November.
im in 9th grade and im going to take it on wednesday
Get up early. Your brain needs time to wake up.
