The Real Purpose of The PSAT
The PSAT doesn’t help you get into college. You’re very unlikely to get a scholarship out of it either – your scores have to be very high to qualify and your eventual college has to participate in the program, which many top schools don’t. So why does the PSAT exist? Marketing.,Schools want to recruit students with specific attributes (ethnicity, geographic region, academic interests). The PSAT collects this info from students and sells it to schools. Then they can send you lots of flyers and letters and emails.,What you get out of it is a preview of your SAT score without having the score appear on your official record. The scores are quite accurate. You can easily convert them to ACT scores. And with these scores you can make an educated guess about your eventual SAT: about the same as your PSAT if you don’t study and about 200 points higher if you do.,This bargain is a little less compelling now that there are so many official practice tests available, but it’s still an okay deal for students.Read More

What is on the ACT Math?
Kids get higher scores because they have improved their performance in a lot of different areas. This could mean learning all of the math or grammar problem types, becoming a more conscientious reader, or disciplining yourself to never run out of time. For example, suppose you’ve never been totally comfortable with averages (mean, median, mode, etc.) and functions, and then you put in some time and learn how to do all of the different types of average and function problems. There is a very good chance that a couple of these problems will be on your test, and when you get those two right, your score will go up by 1 or 2 points. Becoming better at time management will also boost your score: there is a huge difference between barely finishing on time and having 5 minutes to spare.Read More
What is on the ACT Reading?
The reading passages themselves are not very difficult for most students, and most of the questions are what I would call 'detail' questions: something is in the text and they want you to go find it. However, the four passages are each quite long--many students spend four minutes just reading one passage--and there are ten questions for each passage. Many students find that it's hard to complete this section in time, because you only have 35 minutes. If you are a fast reader, or are getting extra time, this test will be great for you, but if not you may want to take a closer look at the SAT.Read More
What's on the ACT Science?
It might be more accurate to call this a 'logic and chart reading' section. Many of the questions simply ask you to find information in a graph or chart, or to notice a simple pattern and predict what the next data point would be. There are very few questions that require prior scientific knowledge. But it does help to be familiar with typical science experiments and concepts because then the questions won't be quite so abstract. Also, like the Reading section, the Science section gives you only 35 minutes to answer 40 questions. As a result, many students skip straight to the questions and refer back to the descriptions of the experiments and their charts and graphs when necessary.Read More
