I had heard that my junior year in high school was going to be difficult. I thought that meant a larger workload in comparison to previous years. I was wrong. Though my junior year did include about 10 times more work over the previous year, what made it harder were all the requirements you’re expected to do outside of that course work, including preparing and taking the SAT to prove your readiness for college.
The SAT has become a rite of passage for most students who apply to college. The expected length of testing is estimated at three hours and 45 minutes. I recently took the SAT, and for me, it took about 51/2 hours because the testing center where I took the exam made a decision to wait for people who were running late, and we took what I thought was an excessive amount of breaks. I was at my testing site from 8 a.m. until almost 1:30 p.m. It was not fun.
