I am going to take Algebra II in Sophomore year. Has anyone risen from this score and made 1500+ on their actual SATs in Junior yr? Do I have hope?

    Anything is possible. D20 took the SAT in school April 2019 and scored 1400. Was unhappy with score and took it again in May after doing some test prep online and in a test prep book. Scored 1490. (Obviously, she was a junior at the time.) She also took Acc Algebra II as a soph and AP Calc AB as a junior. She felt that those classes did help with the SAT.

    Will you be doing any test prep?

    It's not impossible to raise your score 400+ points, just very hard. Khan Academy has a good free study service sponsored by College Board.

    @cstp28 Yes, this is the start of my test prep and I was given the timed at home SATs to see what areas I need help etc. I will be taking some form of Calc for Physics in Jr year or pre-calc summer of sophomore-Jr.
