On Wednesday, October 10, 2018, the Juniors and a few of the Sophomores are going to be taking the PSAT test. Many are probably wondering how in the world are they going to study for this test. Here are five tips on how to get ready to take the PSAT test.

 

1.        Review Your Notes

 

The PSAT is based off the things you have learned in your classes. So make sure to study all the notes you have taken.

 

2.        Take Practice Tests

 

There are multiple practice tests that are online you can take to get ready for this test. These tests will help you see what the actual test will be like.

 

3.         Set a Score Goal

 

If you set a goal on what you want to get on the test you will work harder to try and get that score, or even maybe score higher than what you were aiming for.

  1.         Practice your Reading

You will have to practice reading because there will be a lot of reading in the test. You will want to learn how to read faster than what you are used to, so you can complete the exam on time.

  1.         Get Good Sleep

This is essential to getting a good grade on not just the PSAT, but any test you take. You should get at least 7 hours of sleep so you can rest your brain before you take any test, especially this PSAT. “Sleep helps transform short-term memories into long-term memories by helping make stronger connections between these new experiences and our old memories, that allows the new experiences to be integrated with our general knowledge and understanding of the world,” said Sara Mednick, a professor of psychology at the University of California, Riverside (Howard).

These are a few steps for preparing for the PSAT. Now remember this is just a practice, so if you don’t do so good on it you at least know what you can expect when you take the actual test. Good luck on this test and we all hope you all do great!
