I am a junior. I hope to attend a top college (why else would I be on this website), and am working on building my resume. I feel like I'm pretty well-rounded (grades, ECs, sports, etc.), but the one thing missing is that dreaded SAT/ACT score. I feel like once I get that, I'll be able to relax a little bit.
Anyway, I'm taking the PSAT this Saturday. I have been working with a tutor, and so far have been consistently scoring 750+ in M, 700+ in W...but keep hovering around the low-mid 600s in CR. It really frustrates me because that's the one I work the hardest on, and just don't see any progression. I'm usually okay for the sentence completion and short passages, but once I get to those long passages, it all goes downhill from there. I feel as if I just don't understand what I'm reading and keep reading the same lines over and over again; as if the answer is staring right at me and I just can't see it. Any tips? Also, I'm worried that even though I can do well at home, I might freeze up on test day (including PSAT) and just bomb the whole thing. Any tips?
