Is it too late to start preparing for the SAT?

Hi everyone, I'm a junior and I haven't really started preparing for the SAT yet. I know I should have started earlier, but I've been swamped with schoolwork. Is it too late to start now and still get a decent score? I'm feeling a little overwhelmed and would appreciate any advice!

Hey there! Don't stress too much about it - it's never too late to start preparing for the SAT. In fact, many students begin their preparation during their junior year. You still have enough time to study and improve your score. To get started, try creating a study schedule that fits your needs, focusing on areas where you need the most improvement. Utilize resources like Khan Academy and College Board for free practice materials, as well as taking full-length practice tests to gauge your progress. Remember that it's important to balance your SAT prep with your schoolwork, so don't forget to prioritize both accordingly. You can also consider taking the test more than once if you feel that you need additional time to prepare. Just stay focused, stay positive, and give it your best effort. Good luck with your SAT preparation!
