The SAT- Banish the “timed” part!

Sarah Fitzgerald

The SAT is one of the biggest tests to study for in your high school career. To many of us, like myself,  its very stressing and time consuming to prepare for. For others, it is a piece of cake. I have always complained that we never have enough time to finish the sections of the SAT. It is very overwhelming to me because I like to take my time and go at my own pace. I think it’s almost impossible to finish a 25 question section in 25 minutes. Honestly, what do they expect? The majority of students never finish every section because it’s extremely difficult. I think the SAT shouldn’t be timed because wouldn’t they want us to be successful and answer every question with thought and diligence and at least try to get the questions right?

I think its unfair for us to take so much time to prepare for the SAT and then be pressured to finish in such a short amount of time. I am so glad that I am done with the SATs, because I can now focus on other things like college! Unfortunately, that too is a very stressing thing…!
