As we stroll into the fall testing season (the SAT is tomorrow!!!!), there are two important things to remember. First, ignore your own thoughts about how you are doing. Many students, first-time test takers especially, will assume things are not going well. Ignore those thoughts. Work hard and do what you are supposed to do. Things are rarely as bad as they seem. For example, https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/article/cicada-killer-wasps-are-here.
Next Point, take note of the biological variables that impact your performance. Exercise, eat well, go to bed early, don’t fight with your parents. You have worked hard. Now go get it. And if you have a bad testing day, remember, this guy got it worse.
