With the SAT on the way here are some tips and strategies that will keep you focus on test day and help you understand how to approach the test.
According to the Princeton Review, there are two areas that you should focus on when taking your SAT.
Often times we can get so focused on identifying the right anser that we fail to eliminate the wrong ones which will get us to the right one. According to Princeton Review “Here’s how it works: Each question has 4 possible answer choices. Eliminate even one possibility, and you have a 1:3 chance of guessing correctly. Let’s say there are 9 questions where you eliminate 1 choice and guess among the remaining choices. Statistically, you will guess correctly 3 times and incorrectly 6 times. You just earned 3 points!”
Although SAT questions are not ordered in difficulty so that problems that are easy come earlier than hard ones; But instead according to Princeton Review, it’s important to identify the questions that YOU find easy or hard. The SAT does not score you on how many questions you do. You’re scored on how many questions you answer correctly. So remember to slow down on the questions you personally find easy or medium difficulty so you can pick up the most points. Just make sure you guess on the rest
