Most high school students are expected to take the SAT in high school. These tests are vital in determining whether or not they make it into most colleges. If that pressure isnât enough, these exams are only offered around seven times every year during Saturday mornings and last four hours. While personal issues such as depression, stress, sickness, and family drastically affect how well a student performs on one of those test days, the influence of money is detrimental to students of the nation. The College Board, a multibillion-dollar testing corporation, profits with a test that labels half the participants below average. Moreover, students with better socioeconomic backgrounds will have better chances to get the intense and pricey tutoring to do well. The gap gets wider when some schools don’t offer SAT preparation in the curriculum. The only thing received from the SAT is a score that attempts to determine what type of person you are from one sitting. How does it feel to be just another number? There are better ways to determine a student’s worth, such as their GPA and what they actually did throughout the years, as opposed to a four-hour exam. Why do we accept something that doesn’t work? Numbers clearly have strength; so let us get together and rise against the SAT.
