A practice test is not only another piece of homework. This is an important opportunity for you to assess your readiness to earn a grade that will make you proud. Your conclusions will assist you to make judgments about your study sessions and your preparation plan and if you want to be admitted to the Top SAT Coaching Programmes in Singapore
, you must enrol in the best SAT prep courses.
The following advice can help you ace your practice test:
- Use a notepad or pad of paper if you're taking the test on a computer for the maths questions.
- Use only the test booklet if you are taking the test on paper (extra paper is not available on Test Day)
- Employ a No. 2 pencil.
- Make use of printed bubble wrap (Opens in a new window)
- Utilise a recognised calculator.
A full-length practise exam will give you insight into other areas that will be crucial to your performance on Test Day in addition to your informative, thorough score report from the College Board and tailored practise recommendations on Masterclass Space:
1. A warm-up
- Any portions on which you ran out of time?
- Did you become tense?
- Have you felt peckish?
- Have you had a thirst?
- Did you grow weary?
- Did you maintain your concentration?
- Did you go four hours during the day without checking your phone?
2. Get Ready
- The evening before the practice exam, eat a balanced dinner that includes slow-release energy-producing carbs (for example rice, pasta, and potatoes)
- Print out your practice test the night before and have it ready if you intend to take it.
- Print the answer sheet from the previous evening.
- Have a restful night's sleep (at least 8 hours)
- On the morning of Exam Day on Saturday, wake up no later than 7 am. If possible, attempt to follow this procedure for the practice test.
- Eat a nutritious breakfast, such as fruit juice, eggs, toast, cereal, and eggs - without too much sugar!
3. Location & Setting
- Once more, think about utilising a solid printed bubble sheet rather than writing the letters on a piece of paper at random or circling them on the test booklet.
- Don't forget that you may scan and score it!
- For the essay, use actual paper because you will be writing by hand on test day.
- 2nd-grade pencils
- Fresh battery-powered calculator
- You should have water and wholesome snacks because the testing site is not close to your kitchen.
- If you can't find a proctor, use a timer.
- If at all possible, do it away from the comfort of your house, in a library.
- No enticements.
- Your phone should be off and in your luggage.
- Put your phone on aeroplane mode if you must use it as a timer.
- ADVICE: You can also utilise the Official SAT Practice on Masterclass Space as a timer. Every practice test has a built-in timer that you can use to monitor your progress as you take the test on paper.
You won't be allowed to use any other electronic devices on test day besides a calculator, not even during breaks, as doing so could result in the cancellation of your results. So don't do it on the practice test! The feeling of being cut off for these four hours must be felt by you.
5. Start now
6. Top Ideas
- Try your best to start around 8:30 am, when the SAT will start.
- NOTE: Just so you know what to expect, you might spend the first half hour or so of the exam day sitting quietly in a quiet room full of anxious kids. Part of that time will be spent completing forms and paying attention to instructions.
- Additionally, a declaration confirming your identity must be signed.
- Your practice exam should be proctored by an adult. Choose a friend who will take this role as seriously as you do if there isn't an adult around.
7. Looking Over your Practice Test
- Don't forget to complete the essay because you need to understand how it feels to work on it after three hours of testing.
- Give each section the precise length of time recommended.
- Don't give yourself an additional few seconds to answer questions you didn't get to in the bubbles. Your test day results can be cancelled if you do that.
- Take Breaks formally: Take a 10-minute pause after Section 1 of the Reading Test and a 5-minute rest after Section 1 of the Maths Test (Section 3). If you are writing the essay assignment after the second Maths Test, you could only get a 2-minute break. (You read that right, it's true!)
- During breaks, have nutritious snacks and fluids.
- Here are some insightful queries to take into account while you evaluate your performance:
- The night before the practice test, did you get at least 8 hours of sleep?
- A minimum of an hour before the practice test, did you get up?
- Have you had a nutritious breakfast?
- Did you enjoy your breakfast? Would you like to try a different breakfast option the next time?
- Did the test begin at 8:30 a.m.?
- Did you have a proctor for the exam?
- Did you use a bubble sheet and a printed test?
- Did you consume it all at once?
- Do you remember to allow yourself breaks on test day (10 minutes after the reading test, 5 minutes after the first portion of the maths test, and 2 minutes before the essay begins)?
- Did you hydrate yourself while on breaks?
- During the breaks, did you consume any wholesome snacks?
- Did you enjoy your snacks? While you should only be consuming snacks that are healthy and make you happy, treat yourself during the breaks!
- Did you set time limits for yourself? Why not, if not?
- Did you turn off your phone throughout the practice exam?
You probably have a good idea of what you're capable of right now if you can say YES to every one of the aforementioned questions. If your response was NO, you didn't take all the necessary steps to evaluate your situation accurately.
