I took the SAT for the first time this past spring. I admit that I barely prepared for the SAT (except for answering the College Board Question of the Day a few times before the test date). As a result, I got a 1570 (650W, 450M, 470R), which is really low. I’m a rising senior, hoping to score around a 1700 when I take the SAT in October. Is this doable? Or is this too much?
I am also planning on taking the ACT in September. I’m not sure how much time I should spend preparing for the SAT and ACT. Should I try to improve my SAT score (by studying heavily the next 3 months) by ~130 points, or should I focus on the ACT? I feel like I’ll be too stressed to fully prepare for both once school starts. What should I do?? Thanks!
