Scoring BIG On The SAT

The time to prep for standardized tests is NOW!
Scoring BIG On The SAT

Juniors and seniors will be taking the SAT this spring–and prepping is at hand!

Preparing for the SAT is crucial for students who are aiming to get into their dream schools. By dedicating time and lots of effort into studying, students can significantly improve their test scores and, hopefully, increase their chances of getting accepted into their desired universities. 

Engaging in SAT prep offers numerous benefits. It is created to help students familiarize themselves with the test format, questions that may appear, and time constraints. The SAT is available to seniors during November and May here at Elkhart High School, but students will have to find schools that offer the standardized test if they would like to take it at another time.

Juniors will be participating in the SAT on Wednesday, Mar. 6, 2024.

Senior Minerva Snider has this to say: “I prepare for the SAT by looking through Khan Academy, since they have SAT prep courses available.” Junior Duncan Lefever also prepares this way, voicing the following: “I believe it is the most effective way to study for the upcoming SAT.” SAT prep can help reduce a student’s anxiety and boost his or her confidence on test day. Snider adds, “I try to stay positive, and knowing that I’ve prepared myself helps with that.” 

Studying can allow students to identify their strengths and weaknesses, enabling them to focus more on areas that require improvement. SAT prep can also enhance critical thinking, time management abilities, and problem-solving skills, which are essential for success on the SAT, college, and beyond. Junior Marina Engle share this: “I’ve learned many skills from doing SAT prep on Khan Academy. It has taught me how to work with a specific time limit on tests and my problem-solving skills when doing problems, even if I may not know the answer.” 

Students can work to enhance their knowledge and receive better results on their tests. Studying remains the oldest and most effective strategy–especially when the results can make such a difference in one’s future.

Hi, I’m Destinee Middleton, and I am a junior at Elkhart High School! I like photography--and any other forms of art. This is my second year being a part of The PENNANT. This class has been more than amazing. The publication staff is fun, and the writing helps to express many opinions with others (as many may share the same) and to also share other types of information. I’m hoping to further my photography skills and friendships through The PENNANT. This class is full of geniuses, and I cannot wait to grow with them!
