Fifty-three Scotland High School students were recognized on Thursday during a ceremony in the Media Center for completing their SAT, the College Board admissions test, with a score of 1500 or higher.
The SAT is a three-part test with each section worth a maximum of 800 points. The sections include critical reading, mathematics, and writing (which includes grammar). Students also must write a two-page essay that includes examples from the areas of science, the humanities, literature, or history.
Students are given three hours and forty-five minutes to complete the SAT.
Students are allowed to take the SAT multiple times, and the three highest scores from each section are totaled for a student’s overall SAT score. Those students whose overall score is 1500 or higher are recognized on the McDonald’s SAT Wall of Fame located outside of the office at Scotland High School. Also, if a student takes the test again and improves their score, their name plate is moved to the next category on the Wall of Fame.
“We are honored to have this opportunity to recognize our students,” remarked Joy Smart, SHS Assistant Principal, during the ceremony. “These students always work so diligently to do their very best. We congratulate them and wish them well as they continue to grow and learn.”
