Road Map for November: Sophomores

If you took the PSAT, scores will be ready in a few weeks and will provide useful information for future planning.  They’ll help you identify strengths and weaknesses so you can give attention to areas that might need some work. Keep in mind, however, that depending on your curriculum, you may not have covered some of the math yet that’s on the SAT and ACT.

While some 10th graders are wondering if they should start test prep, I recommend that for now you just focus on doing well in your classes and enjoying the activities that interest you outside of class such as hobbies, sports, clubs and service.  If you have the chance, doing a college tour or two can also help give you a sense of what kind of school you might be looking for in the future.
