As March begins, so does an important question for many students of Chino Hills High School. “Should I take the SAT?” The SAT, or the Standardized Aptitude Test, is an exam that tests students on their essential academic skills. The test includes an English and comprehension section, a grammar, and writing section, and two math sections, in addition, an option to also take an essay test. The SAT is an incredibly challenging test for many, and because of this, it discourages many students from taking it. Fortunately, there is more to the SAT than the difficulty of the questions that are required to pass. Many students think that if they don’t get a 1300/1600 or higher, they won’t get into colleges that they would like to apply to for consideration. Fortunately, this is also not true. Many schools accept scores starting from 900-1000, so students don’t have to be discouraged from taking the test because they are afraid of getting a “bad score.” In addition, another advantage of taking the SAT is to get into a college. If you take the SAT and get a bad score, you still have a better chance of getting into a college than a student who doesn’t take the SAT. If you want to get into a college you like, taking the SAT is a good idea. If you think that the SAT is for you, you can start preparing for the upcoming SAT by registering on the College Board website. In addition, you can find practice tests on the website and a link for more help on the website Khan Academy. Good luck Huskies!
