National SAT Practice Test Day 2021

  • 0:06 - 0:07
    - Hi, everyone.
  • 0:07 - 0:09
    Sal Khan here from Khan Academy.
  • 0:09 - 0:10
    I just wanted to welcome you
  • 0:10 - 0:14
    to National SAT Practice Test Day.
  • 0:14 - 0:16
    Now, a lot of you probably are putting
  • 0:16 - 0:18
    a lot of weight into the Sat.
  • 0:18 - 0:22
    It is an input into the
    college admissions process,
  • 0:22 - 0:24
    but the one thing I wanna
    emphasize is more important
  • 0:24 - 0:28
    than the SAT or your score is your ability
  • 0:28 - 0:31
    to practice, your ability
    to develop yourself
  • 0:31 - 0:33
    and how college ready you can be.
  • 0:33 - 0:36
    And one thing that I've seen
    in my life over and over again,
  • 0:36 - 0:38
    and I've seen in many other people's lives
  • 0:38 - 0:41
    is the more that you focus on the process
  • 0:41 - 0:42
    versus the outcome.
  • 0:42 - 0:44
    One, the more enjoyable it will be,
  • 0:44 - 0:47
    but also you'll probably
    get a better outcome.
  • 0:47 - 0:50
    So as you go into National
    SAT Practice Test Day,
  • 0:50 - 0:52
    and eventually as you
    go into the real SAT,
  • 0:52 - 0:55
    or really if you go into
    anything in your life
  • 0:55 - 0:59
    that might feel important,
    focus on the process
  • 0:59 - 1:01
    and when you do so you'll
    get into kind of a Zen Mode
  • 1:01 - 1:04
    and it's really starts
    to get a little bit fun.
  • 1:04 - 1:06
    So take that mindset into the SAT,
  • 1:06 - 1:09
    put your best effort, get into the flow,
  • 1:09 - 1:14
    get into that zone if you
    will, and do the best you can,
  • 1:14 - 1:17
    but don't get fixated
    on what the outcome is.
  • 1:17 - 1:20
    So with that said, let's get started.
  • 1:20 - 1:21
    - Thanks Sal.
  • 1:21 - 1:22
    Hi, everyone.
  • 1:22 - 1:24
    I'm Lauren from Khan Academy.
  • 1:24 - 1:25
    Before we get to the practice test,
  • 1:25 - 1:27
    I want us to note that we're
    giving away some prizes
  • 1:27 - 1:29
    for our live attendees today.
  • 1:29 - 1:31
    So be sure to check
    out the notes on screen
  • 1:31 - 1:33
    and follow the instructions to enter.
  • 1:33 - 1:36
    We're giving away five, one
    hour SATs tutoring sessions
  • 1:36 - 1:38
    with our SAT practice content expert.
  • 1:38 - 1:43
    And we're also giving your
    way 10 $25 Amazon gift cards.
  • 1:43 - 1:44
    Okay everyone, let's get started
  • 1:44 - 1:46
    on your full full-length practice test.
  • 1:46 - 1:49
    The first step is to
    log into your official
  • 1:49 - 1:51
    SAT practice account on Khan Academy.
  • 1:51 - 1:56
    So go to khanacademy.org/sat
    and sign into your account.
  • 1:56 - 1:59
    If you don't have an account,
    you can create one for free
  • 1:59 - 2:00
    in just a couple of minutes.
  • 2:00 - 2:02
    I'm already signed in.
  • 2:02 - 2:04
    So I'm going to click, let's go.
  • 2:04 - 2:06
    And once you're logged in,
  • 2:06 - 2:09
    you can go ahead and click on
    Full Tests at the top here.
  • 2:09 - 2:10
    Today we're recommending
  • 2:10 - 2:13
    that you take practice test number 10,
  • 2:13 - 2:14
    which is the first test you'll see
  • 2:14 - 2:16
    after you click on Full Tests.
  • 2:16 - 2:18
    Practice tests number 10
    is a newest practice test
  • 2:18 - 2:19
    on our site.
  • 2:19 - 2:21
    And like most of our practice tests,
  • 2:21 - 2:25
    it was previously given
    as a real SAT exam.
  • 2:25 - 2:27
    So it'll give you a great
    idea of what to expect
  • 2:27 - 2:29
    when you take the SAT in a few weeks.
  • 2:29 - 2:31
    If you've already taken
    practice tests number 10,
  • 2:31 - 2:33
    you can choose one of
    these other practice tests
  • 2:33 - 2:36
    to take that you haven't taken before.
  • 2:36 - 2:38
    Before we start the practice tests,
  • 2:38 - 2:39
    I want you to take a minute
  • 2:39 - 2:40
    and make sure you have
    everything you need.
  • 2:40 - 2:43
    So you should have a
    pen or a pencil nearby
  • 2:43 - 2:45
    along with some scratch paper,
  • 2:45 - 2:46
    so you can make notes
  • 2:46 - 2:47
    as you work through your math problems.
  • 2:47 - 2:49
    You also wanna have an approved calculator
  • 2:49 - 2:51
    for the final math sections,
  • 2:51 - 2:54
    and you can go to
    collegeboard.com to learn about
  • 2:54 - 2:57
    what calculators are
    approved for the test.
  • 2:57 - 2:58
    Generally, most graphing calculators,
  • 2:58 - 3:00
    all scientific calculators
  • 3:00 - 3:03
    and all four-function
    calculators are approved.
  • 3:03 - 3:05
    So whatever calculator you have today,
  • 3:05 - 3:07
    that will be just fine
    for the practice test.
  • 3:07 - 3:09
    Another thing important thing to do
  • 3:09 - 3:11
    is eliminate as many
    distractions as possible.
  • 3:11 - 3:15
    So make sure your phone is
    off or set to Do Not Disturb
  • 3:15 - 3:17
    and make sure you're in a
    quiet, comfortable space
  • 3:17 - 3:19
    where you can really focus
    on your practice tests.
  • 3:19 - 3:22
    Also, if you're using a laptop,
    make sure it's plugged in
  • 3:22 - 3:25
    so that you don't have to
    worry about the battery dying.
  • 3:25 - 3:27
    Next, let's take a minute to get over
  • 3:27 - 3:28
    the structure of the test.
  • 3:28 - 3:30
    So you know what to expect.
  • 3:30 - 3:34
    The first section is reading
    and it is 65 minutes long.
  • 3:34 - 3:36
    Then we'll take a 10-minute break.
  • 3:36 - 3:38
    The next section is writing and language
  • 3:38 - 3:41
    and it is 35 minutes long.
  • 3:41 - 3:43
    Right after that section,
    we'll move into the math,
  • 3:43 - 3:47
    no calculator section,
    which is 25 minutes long.
  • 3:47 - 3:49
    Then we'll take a five-minute break.
  • 3:49 - 3:51
    Then you'll return for the final section,
  • 3:51 - 3:53
    which is the math with calculator section,
  • 3:53 - 3:54
    which is 55 minutes long.
  • 3:55 - 3:59
    We won't be adding in the
    optional essay section today,
  • 3:59 - 4:00
    but you can practice the
    essay on Khan Academy
  • 4:00 - 4:03
    after the practice test, if you'd like to.
  • 4:03 - 4:06
    So we'll have a timer running
    on the screen for each section
  • 4:06 - 4:07
    that you can refer to.
  • 4:07 - 4:10
    And just like when you take the real SAT,
  • 4:10 - 4:12
    you'll hear me announce when
    we reached the halfway point
  • 4:12 - 4:15
    of each section, and when you
    have five minutes remaining.
  • 4:15 - 4:17
    I know it's a big commitment
    to take a three-hour test
  • 4:17 - 4:19
    on a Saturday, but going
    through the full test
  • 4:19 - 4:21
    in one sitting is really
    a great way to prepare
  • 4:21 - 4:23
    for the test experience.
  • 4:23 - 4:25
    So I applaud all of you
    for being here today
  • 4:25 - 4:26
    and taking the time.
  • 4:26 - 4:29
    So as you're getting
    ready to start the test,
  • 4:29 - 4:30
    stop (indistinct) a minute and think about
  • 4:30 - 4:33
    what your goal is on
    the practice test today.
  • 4:33 - 4:36
    Maybe you wanna improve your
    pacing in a certain section,
  • 4:36 - 4:38
    or maybe there's a certain benchmark score
  • 4:38 - 4:40
    you're hoping to improve,
  • 4:40 - 4:41
    or maybe you just wanna get a sense
  • 4:41 - 4:43
    of what the full test is like.
  • 4:43 - 4:45
    Whatever your goal is
    just take a quick minute
  • 4:45 - 4:47
    and write it down on your scratch paper
  • 4:47 - 4:49
    and we'll revisit it at the end.
  • 4:49 - 4:51
    All right, so we're ready.
  • 4:51 - 4:53
    So let's everyone take a deep breath,
  • 4:53 - 4:55
    relax and let's get started.

    You just completed a

    Now I know you're
    probably tired right now.

    So after you've had some
    time to rest and relax,
  • 201:48 - 201:50
    I highly encourage you

    so that you can go over
    what you've got right,
  • 201:52 - 201:55
    and what you missed, and you
    can see what you need to study.
  • 201:55 - 201:58
    And as we wrap up this Practice Test Day
  • 201:58 - 202:00
    I want you to think back
    to that goal you wrote down
  • 202:00 - 202:01
    when we first started.
  • 202:01 - 202:03
    Do you think you achieved that goal?

    Why or why not?
  • 202:04 - 202:07
    Just take a few quick
    moments to reflect on that
  • 202:07 - 202:09
    and consider how this might
    affect your future plans

    as you study for the SAT.
