The dreaded Scholastic Aptitude Test, also known as the SAT; just the name can produce anxiety and fear. The SAT has been around since 1926. Ninety-two years of testing stress! For students in the United States, and foreign students hoping for an American education, the SAT can make or break your child’s admission to college. Teachers often start discussing it as early as 8th grade. As a parent, how do you know if your child is ready? Perhaps you’ve heard of SAT study groups at school. You’ve probably heard that your child should study a little everyday to prepare for this monumental test. The College Board recommends vague strategies, but how do you really help your child succeed? The answer is “don’t go it alone!”
THE SAT STRUGGLE
The SAT is arguably the most important test a student takes during high school. For the past 92 years, it has been a very important criterion used by colleges to determine acceptance. With more and more students each year choosing to attend a 4-year college, competition to attend a school of choice is at an all-time high. Most colleges and universities weigh heavily the applicant’s SAT scores, and won’t consider the application if the score does not reach a certain threshold. Many students who excel in their studies are shocked by lower-than-expected SAT scores. You wonder if your child didn’t study. Your child wonders where he or she went wrong.
