20 minutes being given to answer 25 very difficult questions is absurd!
If more time was given on each part of the SAT test, scores would be substantially higher. Students are "rushed" through the test because of the short time limit. Sometimes students will just fill in answers without thinking about them because they are almost out of time.
Also, students taking the SAT/ACT would be far less stressed-out and better able to focus if much more time was given on each section.
Is there any way to be allowed to have more time on the test? If so, how much more time?
What about people with learning disabilities? I have a very pronounced LD in mathematical comprehension. But all of my other academic skills are at, or above grade level. I graduated high school with a 3.6 GPA and high/average test scores except in the math department.
In HS, I excelled in every other subject except math. I am TERRIBLE at math! So much so that college actually might not be a good option for me. I may end up at a vocational or trade school instead. I may have something called "dyscalculia".
For some reason, I never had to take the SAT/ACT after I graduated high school. And I don't know why. Do community colleges require the SAT/ACT?
Off-topic, but I've got a few questions about the SAT/ACT
*How many questions are there in total?
*How much time is given for each section?
*Is it true that you get 200 points for each section if you write and spell your name correctly?
*Are you penalized for wrong answers?
*What is the average SAT/ACT score?
*Can you retake the SAT and ACT?
