I just started my junior year of high school without having taken the PSAT, SAT, ACT, or prepping for any of them. I planned to take the PSAT in my sophomore year, but I never did because it was only offered in-person and my family was more worried about COVID-19 at the time.
I’ve started using Khan Academy to prep for the SAT, and I’ll be taking the PSAT for the first time next month. So far, I’m fairly confident in my math skills (other than needing to review a lot of geometry), but Writing & Language is less promising. Will this be a problem if I plan to apply to selective schools like Stanford and MIT?
To be clear, getting accepted for selective CS programs is a personal goal of mine, but it’s not something I’ll tear myself up over if I don’t get accepted.
