PSAT Review

Use collegeboard.org/quickstart to review your PSAT test you can start preparing yourself for the SAT tests next year. This is an invaluable tool for our students. We must raise our SAT scores if you are to be competitive. When you are juniors, I challenge you to shoot for 500 on the SAT Critical Reading and 550 on the Math so that you can have your CSU placement tests waived, as these scores demonstrate college readiness. You can take the full length SAT test offered on College Board for free to get an idea of how you will score on the actual exam. You can do all of this during your 9th and 10th grade years to give you a huge head start on your SAT prep.

Here is the link for the PSAT video to give you an idea of how to use the PSAT

COLLEGE BOARD ACCOUNTS

This is for all students who have taken the PSAT (about twelve 9th graders have taken this test plus all 10th and 11th graders). If you have not yet made your College Board account, please see the attachment for some very important details about making your account. Read it VERY carefully to avoid many problems in the future such as not being able to get your financial aid. After you have made your account, go to college board.com/quickstart and check out your answers. Learn why you missed the ones you missed so you can start preparing for the SAT. This is a wonderful way to raise your SAT scores. Please take advantage of it!
