How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
How often do you perform timed tests? If you know the material well and get it, it may just be a stress factor. The SAT is also meant to be tricky. It's often more logic than pure knowledge. I would suggest checking out 1600.io
There are free and paying programs, but regardless they all do a good job. George goes through each practice tests and has a lot of helpful advice. Supplement with Khan Academy paper tests to get a real feel for the test.
I recommend joining a SAT prep program. I attended one, and I ended up getting a 1520 on the SAT after constant practice, and my friends got even higher scores attending the same place. Find a test prep place in your area! But if you can't afford this (it costs around $1000), then I recommend doing the CollegeBoard prep and Khan Academy. CollegeBoard has a scholarship opportunity if you follow their guidelines, so check that out! You can also buy the official SAT prep guide by CollegeBoard.
Here are some places I recommend if you live in this area:
I used the khan Academy and the official college board books. Also practice 1 hour a day minimum alternating between English and Maths. Do timed practice tests. I used the college panda book for my Essay component and did quite well. Princeton review's practice tests also helped me. To ace in English, memorize the grammar rules and apply them while practicing. The more you practice, the better you get.
