How to get those last few questions right

<p>I have been missing about 3/4 questions per test on both writing and verbal.</p>

<p>i go over why i got the question wrong after im done with the test. I still cannot avoid making inane mistakes on the following test, however. the questions do not seem to be any specific type either. i can not find any recurring patterns in the mistakes i make- so im really at a loss.</p>

<p>does anyone have any advice on how i can get those last few questions right? what makes the difference between a 2350 and 2400?</p>

<p>I think its mostly concentration. I can't seem to get past the high 700's verbal hump. I always mess up an easy one and misread a problem or two. You just have to be really careful (or decide you are done with the SAT ;))</p>

<p>I'll second that. When you get to the top of the range, mental endurance can often be the last thing you need to fix. If the questions you're missing don't have a common theme, it sounds to me like the final hurdle you need to clear is probably all in your head.</p>

<p>Just be sure that you feel very comfortable with the test (by practicing a lot at home using practice tests, etc.) and really simulate the SAT environment as much as possible. </p>

<p>Also, sounds like you have taken the test a few times, so I'm sure you'll have more experience than me anyways, since I haven't taken it yet :)</p>

<p>yeah, that's one of those things I struggle with, not just on SAT but on regular school tests as well. There's always that one question that holds me back and keeps me from making a 100. It's frustrating; and, yeah, most of the time it's just a mental error.</p>

<p>if you're getting 3/4 of the questions wrong, i dont think you need to be asking yourself what the difference is between a 2350 and a 2400, seeing as you are nowhere near 2350. Also, there is no difference. Everything above 750 is considered the same.</p>

<p>i didnt mean 75 percent... i meant 3 or 4 questions on reading and 3 or 4 on writing..</p>

<p>ohhhhhhh, ok, that question makes sense now, but like i said 750+ is all the same to colleges.</p>
