I scored painstakingly low on my 2nd SAT.
The first time I took the SAT in June, I got an 1180. I was aiming for a 1200 so I was sort of content. The 2nd time around (August) I went in for SAT Prep every day at a tutoring center for almost a month. I thought I learned more and I was confident on it but not too confident that I would make careless mistakes. I was extremely ready and excited to take the test and I found that the test didn't go that bad at all. I was hoping for a 1250 this time. But .. I got an 1120. For me, that is crazy low and literally crushing. I don't know how this could have happened and I'm spending so much time just crying about it (not pity just sad). My mom was a big supporter for me and she is super excited to see my SAT score and she said this is the last one I can take. I don't know what to do anymore. I struggled with my grades the first 2 years of high school, but got all A's in my junior year. I'm a senior now and taking some harder classes and working hard to get good grades, but my GPA is not great (2.8). College was a way out for me since I live with an abusive father and a high SAT score could've balances my poor GPA, but now I don't even know how what why what even HAPPENED. How do i solve this and does anyone know what could've happened on this test??12 replies
