Question: in the 70%-80% range for english and <20% for the math. i didn't study at all but then i didnt really think id do this bad. i feel very discouraged as the colleges i want to go to, nyu tisch, usc film, chapman dodge college (#1), etc.., are quite selective, especially their film programs. im a recognized writer so i know my essay will be great, ive volunteered at film festivals and have created shortfilms, but im concerned my low score will mean my resume wont get past the first stage readers. i know a lot of colleges wont even look at the package if you dont mean a certain score requirement. : ( help!

Schools only look at the SAT scores, not the PSAT. It seems odd that you would score low with your high intelligence. How are your grades (more important than the SAT)? My suggestion would be to take some SAT preparation classes. I've listed one (free) resource for you in sources, but you might try googling "SAT Preparation" as well as talking to your counselor about how to proceed. Obviously math is a very weak area for you; I've included one site to work on math as well.

it really is humorous, after I took the MENSA website try it gave a score of questions you acquire excellent out of 30, not an truly IQ volume. became this the internet web site try or a reliable, in-human being, proctored exam? If it became an internet version, nicely, to allow you to comprehend if it really is solid - MENSA would not settle for on line ratings, even on their personal checks, to get into the corporate, so as that could want to allow you to comprehend some thing.

Dear Donald, Check out the links provided by jbcoops, who gave you very good advice, above. You have to consider that there is a very big difference between "IQ", eg., intelligence and knowledge. Regardless of your "IQ Potential" you will never pass a test if you do not read nor study the materials. A genius is only a genius by application. Happy Happy Holidays! JohnW

You said it was a PSAT, right? So take the SAT next time and STUDY!!! You'll do fine. You dropped the ball by not studying for the PSAT, but you can pick it up again when you take the SAT.

Kari Originally Answered: Stupid SAT's-What is the best way to prepare for the PSAT and then the SAT?
Try finding a list of the fifty or so most common vocab words on the ACT/SAT and memorize their definitions Take advanced classes in your sophomore and junior years Read on a regular basis: preferably classics. It's the best way to improve vocabulary Take as many practice tests as possible Don't focus solely on the test. Try to get involved with volunteering, a sport or club, or some type of leadership program. GPA and admission essays are hugely important so don't blow them off. Ask a teacher for help with the essay. Revise it multiple times Memorize important formulas and numbers (i.e. the squares and square roots of the first 20 numbers, the quadratic formula, etc...) If you score around a 200 on your PSAT in your junior year you'll probably be eligible for a national merit scholarship, although you'll probably need closer to a 220 to become anything more than a semifinalist Research any schools you're interested in Books and CDs will probably be available in your school library. Ask about school preparatory programs. If you Google SAT or ACT, you'll find plenty of useful sites Good luck
