Many students have the same plan – to take the PSAT or SAT, get a feel for what the test will be like, and then to study harder than he or she has ever studied before in order to raise their SAT or ACT score the second time they take the test. For many students, this is not a half bad idea except that the majority of students score similar to their first score and often receive a worse score the second time they take the test. Why? Students can be overly confident in how they have studied and believe they see similar questions to the first time they take the test. This means students tend to go through the test faster the second time – overlooking common SAT tricks that students in a hurry will surely fall for.
Many students, for different reasons, ask themselves…
Should I take the SAT / ACT again?
For students who are deciding whether or not to take the SAT or ACT again, scoring in the 90th percentile or greater on the SAT can lead to several scholarship opportunities and first-pick at the College or University of your choice. Consider retaking the test until you have confidently reached the 90th or higher percentile range!
