There is no doubt that when facing a big test like the SAT that you are going to feel a bit of anxiety. While a little is natural, a lot can be detrimental to your score. The good news is that if you get a score you are not happy with, you can retake the test. At the same time, you would much rather get a good score the first time around so you don’t have to sit through it again.
Taking the SAT is one of the most stressful things that a student can do. This is why most students study until it becomes physically painful. However, getting the desired SAT score requires much more than studying until you don’t think you can study anymore. The preparation also continues on test day and prepping the right way will keep your stress level down.
As a matter of fact, reducing the chaos before you sit down to take the test will allow you to be better prepared for one of the most important tests in your life. If everything is confusing and chaotic before you enter the room, you are going to continue feeling anxious and unorganized throughout the test.
