    My d got 560M/530V in 7th grade; beginning of 10th grade got 700M/650V. As a junior, she didn't want to deal with the new SAT version, so just took the ACT and got 33.

    710M/530V in 7th grade. I haven't taken any official SAT's yet, but in 8th grade I had 790M/650V and my 10th grade PSAT was 76M/76V/70W (I'm not exactly sure what the sections are named though).

    Whoa, theoneo, did you study for the 7th grade one and not for the 8th grade?
  • theoneotheoneo Registered User Posts: 6,934 Senior Member
    Hehe. I qualified for CTY in seventh grade. Their policy is that you don't need to test in again. But then I heard about the Study for Exceptional Talent, where you need to get 700+ on either section before you're 13, or 10 more points for each month over 13. I needed like a 750 or something, so I didn't even bother answering half the verbal questions. Unfortunately, I didn't qualify for SET. Though all I really wanted was the free magazine.

    Oh, and I didn't study for verbal either times. My parents told me to study for it for my second test (since I did so poorly my first time), so I tried to memorize from a 600 word list, which didn't help much, so I decided to leave it and take some rest between math sections.

    ok.. so this may sound like a stupid question but i'm about to be a senior and have grown up with parents who don't really know anything about college prep, but what is with 7th grade SAT stuff? What are the benefits of taking the SAT in 7th grade? Is it a different test? Obviously I'm past that point in my schooling, but I was just curious.

    Talent searches and their corresponding programs.

    Programs such as Center for Talented Youth through JHU, Education Program for Gifted Youth through Stanford, Center for Talent Development through Northwestern, and Talent Identification Program through Duke make opportunities available to qualified middle school students.

    At least for CTY and EPGY, if you score high enough (and score in the top 2% or so on a standardized state exam), you are eligible for their summer and online courses, which can be taken for either enrichment or credit. I've done Algebra I, Computer Programming I, and I'm currently in Precalculus - all for credit. Most students choose to take advantage of their summer opportunities where they live on a college campus for something like three/four/six/???(i forget) weeks and take a course while interacting with other gifted kids.

    Im going to the John Hopkins one for the third time this summer, taking psychology. I love it but this will be my last time :-(.

    I took the ACT at the end of 6th grade and got a 22 (24E, 20m, 23R, 22S). As a junior, I got a 34 (33E, 34M, 35R, 34S).
