I'm a senior that's taking the SAT for the final time in Oct. I didn't practice much during the summer, which is most likely to blame for a decrease in my scores on practice tests. A few people that I know - they scored in the 2250-2380 range - say that taking the SAT again will only boost ones score a maximum of 200 points. I'd greatly like to prove them wrong. School has started for me, and my course load, along with science fair research and my other EC'S, have dropped a plethora of work on my desk with very little time to focus on this standardized test. I plan to raise my score as much as I can in these next two months. My goal is one far greater than 2100 I'm ultimately aiming for a 2400. I don't care what anyone else says. I understand that there will be times when scores will plateau, but I will try to rise above my plateaus. I'll post what I did and how much of what I did daily, as I'm on CC a lot. If you'd like, you can follow me on this journey. If not, then just ignore this thread. This thread has been inspired by a few people that I saw making these threads when I first joined CC. One of those people was FatNerd, who scored far above his goal. I'm using this thread to try to focus and keep me organized. Also, please disregard the grammatical errors, as I am typing this from a mobile device.
