Do I still have a chance to even if I didn't take the SAT my Junior Year?
Okay so currently, I am a High school Senior with a 3.179 GPA and my grades are in the high 80's.
My guidance counselor advised me to keep my grades up at a 4.5 grade scale so that they may boost my gpa. My GPA only has a chance of reaching 3.4-3.6 if I keep my grades up.
My grades in my Junior year are a B-Average and my current grades are lookng about the same but are in the high B's. I just started this school year but it goes by really fast and it makes me nervous.
These are my top choices of schools to attend:
- College of Charleston (I really wanna go here)
^ SAT Scores: 1110 to 1195 (Avg-), 1195 to 1280 (Avg+), 1280 and Above (Good)
^ ACT scores: 23 to 25 (Avg-), 25 to 28 (Avg+), 28 and Above (Good)
I didn't take the SAT at all my Junior year and got a 16 on my ACT my Junior year.
>So my question is overall, is it extremely bad that I didn't prepare better my Junior year? And while in my Senior year would it look bad as if I'm trying to get organized and get tests done at the last minute? And is this 'last minute' thing going to lessen my chances of getting into a college at all?
- Howard of University
- Kennesaw State University,
I got a 16 on my ACT in my Junior year and I didn't take the PSAT or SAT at all my Junior year. I took the ACT once and failed. I didn't study all summer and basically slacked. I've started studying this year for the ACT on Octber 28th, December 9th, April 14 2018, and July 14th 2018.
I'm planning on taking the SAT and I'd have to ask my guidance counselor for the dates and when I have to schedule that. But I am honestly scared and have had mental breakdowns because I feel like if I studied more earlier, had my grades up earlier in the start of high school, if I had a better mindset, I'd be in a much less stressful situation. I feel like if I don't pass, I'm going to struggle and not get into college at all.
