3 Ways Goal Setting Will Improve Your SAT chances- San Mateo SAT Prep

San Mateo SAT PrepWhen you set goals as you prepare for the SATs, you will be able to focus your studies and hone your

skills so that you can achieve the scores you need for admission to the college of your choice. Here are

three ways goal setting will improve your SAT score.

1) Concrete Target

Studying for an exam that covers a broad range of material can feel nebulous. You may not know where

to begin or how to focus your time. Setting goal scores for each section of the test will help you

understand where you need to focus your studies. You can also determine what kind of college program

you will be applying for and aim for higher scores in the specific sections that apply.

2) Practice Required

In order to achieve your goals, you must take practice tests. Practice tests will help you understand what

a reasonable goal is for you and help you keep track of how well you are achieving these goals. In

addition to tracking your progress, practicing will help you perform better on the test. While you are

working to attain your goals and measuring your growth towards those goals, you are also improving your

test taking abilities.

3) Remove Pressure

Often, test takers feel the need to compare their scores with others or prove themselves with a very high

score. Developing a goal score that is directly associated with your abilities and your hopes for college

admissions will allow you to measure your success only against yourself. This can relieve stress and

anxiety associated with the exam. When that burden of stress is lifted, you are likely to perform better on

the exam.

Take Time to Set Goals

Setting goals will give you something concrete to aim for. It will help focus your studies and give you a

reasonable measure of success. Take the time to set goals as you plan your test prep. You can also work

with a test prep service that will help you develop appropriate goals and give you the opportunity to
