    @thehhs12 I actually am very interested in business and entrepreneurship. I know that when I'm older I want to be a business owner, but I'm not sure what business lol.
    Wow a lot of you guys are taking Psats too!

    @thehhs12 I am good at english and have decent essay skills but hate writing about certain more philosophical/abstract topics. EX. What is the meaning of nature?

    Just finished my PSAT and I'm ready to kill my proctor. So you know the second math section where you're allowed to use calculators? Well guess what? My teacher was unable to recognize that graphing calculators were calculators and didn't allow us to use the calculators during that section so we had to do it by hand. It wasn't hard or anything, but it utilizied a lot more brain power that needed using

    @collegeready33 Ugh, there has to be some kind of complaint you can make to the College Board about that. I hope our proctors don't make the same mistake, i doubt they will though, since they have done this many times before.

    How did you all feel about the PSAT? I was surprised about how it compared with the practice tests my school gave me - it was a lot easier (I thought). Did anyone else do practice tests and have comparisons?

    I didn't do any prep this year, because it doesn't matter yet and I wanted to see what an SAT would be like. I'm living for the memes though
  • thehhs12thehhs12 Registered User Posts: 25 New Member
    Lol! :-j!
    My school gave out the practice test from the PSAT manual, but did not recommend we study for it! I brushed up a little bit, but not that much. I didn't finish all of it? Did you guys finish it? Does it count for you guys, it doesn't for us!
    The memes developed were really funny and that's what I lived for as well!

    @thehhs12 We did get a practice test. I went through the reading and writing/language sections because they were new to me but my math teacher spent a day going over standardized test math questions and stuff because I'm in a senior math class and they're all taking the SAT

    Yeah, the psat was pretty easy.
  • moonquismmoonquism Registered User Posts: 62 Junior Member
    the reading wasn't that hard, the hardest passage was probably the political speech one
    the writing seemed a lot harder than the practice test
    and the math was really easy
