My daughter is going to take the SAT in Mar 2012. She's taken the PSAT and we had her scores sent to our home. But when it comes to the SAT scores I was thinking of doing the same thing and then we personally send the scores to the colleges. Is that the best way to do it?
For the PSAT scores, a 50 per section is average. The percentile score is helpful too, but you want to be above the 50th percentile, which you are This is likely the first time students take the test and are compared with "college-bound" age mates, rather than the general public. That may be why her score was not what you were expecting.
This will explain everything:
Thanks, Lee. I was looking at the scores wondering what they meant. Is the percentile any indication of how she did? I think her percentiles were higher than I expected based on the scores themselves. Does that mean everyone taking the test didn't score as high as they should have? In other words, for the "good, but not great" scores, she was in the 80th percentile range, when I expected her scores would put her closer to the 60-70th range. Can you explain?
Visiting colleges is an important step in determining where your child will apply. It shows colleges that you are interested in coming to their school. With college visits, you'll want to have prepared some questions in advance that will give you information you can't find online or in their view-books. Ask open-ended questions to, hopefully, engage in meaningful conversation.
