WHAT IS THE SAT?
The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is a college entrance exam produced by College Board that all juniors in the state of Michigan are required to take as part of the Michigan Merit Examination (MME), and is a graduation requirement.
HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR THE SAT?
CollegeBoard and Khan Academy have created a partnership that allows students to utilize free test preparation for the SAT. When students create an account with CollegeBoard (www.collegeboard.org) and Khan Academy (www.khanacademy.org/sat) and link them together, students are able to utilize free and individualized test preparation based off their PSAT 9 and 10 test results.
This video clip can help you go through the process of linking your CollegeBoard and Khan Academy accounts together.
***Current juniors should have already created and linked their accounts.
The Daily Practice App is another tool that students can utilize to prep for the SAT. All Wayland students already have this app pre-loaded onto their iPads! This video clip helps demonstrate how students can take advantage of the features the app has to offer, including instant scoring of practice tests.
HOW TO REGISTER FOR THE SAT
All students in their junior year will take the SAT in April. However, if students want to take or re-take the SAT on their own, they are able to do so but must register for the test, first. Students may register to take the SAT through CollegeBoard's website found through this link. Students must use their CollegeBoard account to login in order to register for a test date. Directions for how to register online can be found here.
Fee waivers are available for students on free/reduced lunch. Fee waivers may be picked up from your counselor. If you have any questions regarding fee waivers click on this website to find out more information.
