After taking the district tests for FBLA in January, many members moved on to the state tests. There were sixteen members who moved up to state. They took their state tests on March eleventh through March twelfth.
When asked about how the state tests compared to the district tests, most of the members responded that the state tests were more difficult.
Sheny Delgado, a sophomore, said, “The questions were very similar, except for the few that were a bit more difficult.”
Russell Pinnell, a senior, replied with something different. He said, “No, I think that it was at the same level. There were different questions but it was the same material.”
Mrs. Anderson, the FBLA leader, gave out study materials that the members were able to use for the district and state tests. Besides these materials, the students were asked what they did to study.
Emily Delgado, a freshman, said, “I took practice tests and found out what skills to work on and studied online.”
The members were then asked what advice they would give to people taking the test in later years.
Alyssa Sidwell, a sophomore, said, “Study and don’t second-guess yourself.”
Russell Pinnell responded, “Look at the notes in advance and then do some research on your own, and just use common sense on the test.”
Emily Delgado said, “I would tell them to not put off studying to the last two days.”
Sheny Delgado said, “Study, and even if you think you know everything, keep studying.”
Good luck, FBLA members, at state competitions on April fourteenth through April sixteenth!
