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.
Most people don't take these tests until Junior year. Keep them in mind as things that you'll do in the future, but you should really be focusing more on extracurricular activities and your coursework. The earliest I think you should study for it is the end of your sophomore year but I wouldn't take it until the middle of your junior year.
I think it would be best to focus on your classes during your freshman year, and you could begin shifting your focus to the ACT/SAT during your sophomore year. Taking the PSAT your sophomore year would be an excellent way to see what skills you need to improve on before taking the SAT.
