Wondering about experiences in score improvement from PSAT to SAT with prep/tutor and without…and both.
My daughter took the PSAT-10 last year and did fair. She took the 10/17 PSAT test this year as a Junior with minimal prep----just poking around on Khan, and said it was “impossible.” She begins a prep class Saturday for the 12/5 SAT and just trying to gauge a fair level of expectation both from where she started last year to a longer term goal.
It’s a bit disheartening because she has a 3.97 UW GPA, is acing her honors and AP courses this year thus far. She is a year round competitive swimmer, went to States her Freshman & Sophomore years, strong ECs and volunteers with Special Olympics, part time lifeguard…but definitely discouraged about the opportunities for direct admit nursing unless she is able to increase her score significantly.
Any thoughts, experiences, guidance is much appreciated. If you need further information, just ask! Thanks.
