SAT resources for Canadian students

Hey everyone! I'm a high school junior from Canada and I was wondering whether there are any resources or tips specifically for Canadian students preparing for the SAT. Are there any particular challenges or advantages for us? Thanks in advance!

Hi there! As a Canadian student, preparing for the SAT might feel slightly different, but there are numerous resources available for you. First, I recommend checking out Khan Academy's free, online SAT resources. They've partnered with the College Board, which administers the SAT, to provide high-quality practice materials, including video lessons, practice questions, and full-length SAT practice tests.

In addition to Khan Academy, CollegeVine is a great resource for college admissions insights and personalized guidance, including free materials related to the SAT, such as essay prompts and advice for each section of the test.

Another way to prepare is simply by reviewing topics covered in your high school coursework. Make sure to hone your reading comprehension, mathematical, and grammar skills in advance of the test.

Regarding challenges or advantages for Canadian students specifically, it's worth noting that the SAT is primarily administered to U.S. students. That being said, some aspects of the test (particularly the vocabulary and reading comprehension sections) may involve cultural references or idiomatic expressions more common in the United States. Familiarizing yourself with these cultural differences will be beneficial.

Best of luck on your SAT preparation journey!
