Should you have spare time on the SAT?

Hey there, I'm a rising senior who's taken the SAT twice. First score was 1690/2400, second was 1280/1600. My parents were reluctant to pay for a second time without any preparation on my part, but I convinced them that the new SAT would be better for me based on the PSAT I took in the fall (1200/16...

Should I file a complaint if my proctor made a timing mistake?

I was taking the general SAT today, the one with all 4 sections and the essay. The proctor for my test made an error with the time, which actually messed me up a bit.

How can I get extra time on the SAT for a disability?

On these prolonged tests I will occasionally doze off and can get distracted. I went to a physician and she said it was one of the worst cases she has ever seen. She gave me medication, but it doesn't really help me. My counselor I feel isn't much help and I feel she laughed it off. Is it possible t...

How can I manage time on ACT Reading and Science?

I have a lot of trouble on the reading and ACT science reasoning sections. I get around a 30 if I complete the whole Reading section on practice tests without any worry for time. With the science reasoning, it's random. I sometimes have enough time to do great or sometimes I miss out on a full exper...

PSAT Math How to Avoid Running Out of Time?

On PSAT practice tests, I consistently score in the low 200s without time constraints. On the real PSAT, I've scored in the 150-190 range twice because I can't get to all of the questions. Most of my time issues are in the math section. What can I do to fix this problem?
