SAT Preparation

By Vincent | Gap Year Student

Grade 12s of 2018 Prepare for the SATs
Grade 12s of 2018 Prepare for the SATs

I learnt about the SAT prep in Grade 11 Term 3. We were expected to start during the December holiday preparing and learning.

My first reaction to this was fear of failing and nervousness. I began to think Mina, the KF fellow, was trying to test who was the best student among the Grade 11s. But it was about taking this exam to find better placements in university.

SATs consist of two subjects: English and mathematics. They contain topics from our school syllabus but they are advanced and depend on time and accuracy to finish them.

The SAT preps are led by Mina, who takes us through questions and helps us to grasp complicated concepts. It’s two hours long, so we do one subject per hour and have assignments to take as homework or extra work. Additionally, it’s student oriented in that we present our problems in dealing with the assignments and she introduces students who understand it better to explain.

During the two hours of learning we take exercises and assignments to do. These freak me out and makes me feel like I will fail, but it helps to force myself while we are learning to understand the task and concepts guiding it. I also do some of those questions during my free time in class and it helps me to clear my mind.

This time, I now feel free and less nervous to approach questions because I have had a test of some questions and what they ask for. I am certain in October when I write I will be more accurate and vigorous to do it. To achieve this, I will continue practicing how to read work out and write the test within the allocated time by monitoring testing and engaging in group discussions to complete assignments.

I have learnt a lot from this practice, but one surprising thing was how easy it is to identify figurations, parts of speech and reference of passages by simply using word choice and opinions of the writer. I have improved in my English exceptionally. Exciting things like how to do graphical equations just by using a simple formula is a push in mathematics and how to do equations of a circle.

My advice to all the students who are going to take this exam that it will either stress you or make you better. Use them to your level best and everything will fall into place.
