For now, just see your 8th grade SAT as a valuable learning experience. He has a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and a Masters in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.He has been teaching K-12, University, and adult education classes since 2007 and has worked with students from every continent.If you are taking the SAT in middle school, timing is important.Only 8th grade SATs can count for college admissions.
You’ll have plenty of time to worry about applying for college in 3 or 4 years, when you’re finishing up high school.
On the other hand, suppose you took an 8th grade SAT this year, after the New SAT was rolled out.
In that case, your score has a better chance of being accepted, provided there aren’t any other “game changing” updates to the exam between now and your junior/senior years of high school.
Still, 8th grade SAT scores are not a “sure thing,” compared to high school SATs.
For the reasons outlined above, there’s a chance your 8th grade SATs could be rejected by universities if that is your only SAT score.
