    Starting off a new year, BOHS students, mostly juniors and seniors, took the SAT on Oct 3. According to Collegeboard official website, the SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets students show colleges what they know and how well they can apply that knowledge. Taking the test composed of three sections, writing with essay, critical reading, and math, BOHS students were tested on their exhaustive knowledge. As the SAT has huge impact on featuring students’ Academic profile for college application, they went to either get help from tutor or go to an academy.

      Venessa Kim, senior at BOHS, went to the academy to get specific helps on SAT test and took the SAT on Oct 3.

        “Going to the academy definitely helps; however, I’ve also seen a lot of students getting good scores [not getting any extra help],” Kim said.

          Not only seniors, including Kim went to an academy or place to get tutor, but also juniors. According to Charlotte Alter in Time magazine, high school students who take the SAT in 2016 will face a very different test than those who came before them. Having only three chances of taking the old-version SAT, juniors are trying to receive the satisfying score before it changes.

            BOHS students, especially juniors can take a free prep test online at Khan Academy. According to Time, students will be able to access high-quality online test prep without signing up for programs like Princeton Review or Kaplan, which are often difficult for students from low-income families to afford.

              “If you have time, it is better to start now. Don’t think about it too hard. You can do well by studying by yourselves [even if] you do get help from tutor,” Kim said.
