A recent College Board study has parents, students, and educators worried that high school seniors are - for the most part - not ready to go to college. The results of the study indicated that of all the students who took the SAT last year, "only 43 percent reached or exceeded the College Board's bar for college preparedness."
While this number may seem low, it is not a reason to panic just yet. Keep in mind that the test itself is not perfect. And even if the College Board implements changes, they will not happen overnight.
Caroline Duda, an SAT tutor, points out that, "The SAT can be taught, and it should not be correlated to inherent academic aptitude." Students can - and should - take classes, or find a tutor to help them achieve a higher score.
