Answers To Common Question About Your SAT Math Scores

Posted on

There is no doubt that preparing for your SATs is a stressful time for most students. Given that they can impact the colleges you get into and in some cases, even the classes you can take in college, it is crucial to prepare as much as possible for your SATs. If you are particularly concerned about how well you will do on the math portion of your SATs, it is a good idea to be aware of the following questions that have occurred to many students before you.

#1-Are SAT's Equally Important To Every School?

It is important to note that each college and university can decide how important the SAT results are. When determining whether an applicant will be admitted to their college, SATs will usually play a strong role, but your transcripts from high school, your college interview, and your grade point average will also be considered. For clarification from the college you are most interested in attending, it is best to contact the facility and find out what importance the SATs have at that specific facility. There is no one-size-fits-all answer, but in general, your SATs will be important.  

#2-Can You Re-take The Test If You Are Not Happy With The Score?

Even if you studied before the test, took PSATs numerous times and hoped you would do well, there is always the possibility that you did not do as well as you hoped. In that instance, or if you simply would like to beat someone else's score, you do have the option of re-taking it. The same fees will apply, as will any pre-registration policies in place from the testing office. The good news is that only the highest score will be sent on to the colleges and universities where you apply.

#3-Should You Prepare For The Test?

One common mistake made by many students each year is assuming that because they did well in high school, studying for the SATs is not necessary or that minimal preparation is required. Your best bet is to enroll in any study sessions for the SAT that you can find. By doing so, it is much more likely that the results will be a helpful addition to your college applications.     

In conclusion, it is very important to be adequately prepared for your SATs, since the results can follow you for quite a while. Since there are so many questions that students may ask about the math portion of the SATs, you will be better prepared by being aware of the preceding questions that many other students have asked in recent years.
