Don't let a low SAT score stop your college goals

Thursday, July 21, 2011
The SAT is a part of the college admissions process for many schools. Unfortunately, some individuals have trouble taking this exam, which is designed to gauge a test taker's reading, writing and math skills. So does a low score mean the end of one's college aspirations?

Of course not. In the event that an individual receives less-than-stellar results, there are a number of SAT prep options designed to teach the strategies that can boost test scores. High schools often offer discounted prep classes for their students. Individuals who want to work on their own can use SAT workbooks or take practice tests online.

Students also can prepare themselves for the demands of the SAT by working hard at school, according to, a higher education research organization and the test's developer. Challenging classes, good study habits as well as reading and writing in and outside of classrooms can help build essential test-taking skills.

Students who feel that the SAT does not present an accurate reflection of their academic abilities can also apply to "test optional schools" that do not require results from standardized tests. According to Cristiana Quinn of Rhode Island's, there are more than 800 schools in the U.S. that do not ask to see applicants' SAT scores.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800557765-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
