Students in the class of 2025 in the US will be the first ones to face the new digital adaptive PSAT in October of 2023 and then the first new digital adaptive SAT in March of 2024. As this class begins to think about their standardized testing plans, they are asking questions about this transition to this new test.
Much like a scrimmage or dress rehearsal, taking practice tests under realistic, timed conditions removes the mystery of the test, reduces test anxiety, and increases confidence. Practice tests are a crucial component of any successful test prep program. They provide a starting baseline for test planning and help track progress toward score goals.
