Steer Clear of the New SAT - Score At The Top

Last Updated on Mar 25, 2015 12:00:00 AM

 

Do you want your child to be a guinea pig for the “redesigned” SAT one year from now – or a savvy student with options? We recommend the latter, of course!

Our review of the ninety-four new SAT sample test questions released by the College Board lead us to believe that the new test will be significantly harder with its emphasis on deeper critical thinking, and with the introduction of more difficult reading passages and higher-level math concepts. This redesigned test will impact current sophomores ― who would normally be ready to take their first SAT about one year from now. They will be among the first students to take the redesigned SAT ― unfortunately with limited practice materials available. The College Board plans to release only one full-length practice SAT in May, followed by a book of four practice tests on June 30. Students who use these practice tests will not really know what their scores mean – how they stack up against current SAT and/or ACT scores – until the score “conversion tables” are released later in the summer.

Last Updated on Mar 23, 2015 12:26:00 PM

 

Florida State released their final freshman decisions last Wednesday after the close of school. Director of Admissions Janice Finney explained that the school deferred more students in December than in the past, so more students received final decisions. Of those deferred in December, students who did not provide mid-year grades were not reconsidered.

Bright Futures Gets Tougher - Score At The Top

Last Updated on Apr 21, 2014 10:18:00 AM

Among educators who value intellectual rigor, there have often been rumblings about how academic standards have eroded. “Old schoolers” will complain that a grade of B today doesn’t at all match a B from decades ago. Well, whether it’s purely a fiscal concern or not, Florida’s Bright Futures program has really tightened its belt insofar as student performance is concerned.

Last Updated on Feb 27, 2014 12:00:00 AM

Back in March of 2005, the College Board introduced the current SAT Reasoning Test which includes the now familiar “writing” component. The test grew longer,

Quicksand and the SAT (or ACT) - Score At The Top

Last Updated on Feb 21, 2014 2:11:00 PM

Quicksand lurks on what seems like solid ground across which we absolutely must travel to get where we want to go. That’s the background scene that defines the landscape for many students who face the SAT or ACT. They struggle with so many aspects of the test, and the more they struggle, the quicker and deeper they sink. All avoidable.
There was a time many decades ago when TV Westerns had the obligatory quicksand pit. Some good guy would save another good guy – or even save a bad guy – from getting sucked into oblivion. Why get sunk by the SAT? With the right attitude, preparation, and poise, you can leverage the SAT or ACT into an experience that serves you in more ways than you think.

Strategies for Stress Management During Midterms - Score At The Top

Last Updated on Feb 19, 2014 2:00:00 PM

Days or weeks of constantly studying for midterms, being slammed down by pressure to excel, cause a great deal of mental and physical strain. Take a break and make an effort to reduce your stress, and you'll find you not only live a happier and healthier student life, but you'll also probably find it in yourself to get centered and do better on your exams as a result.
