On Thursday, October 4, the sophomore class at NHHS took the PSAT to prepare them for the ACT exam they’ll take their junior year in April.
In order to prepare for the ACT, many students are taking school more seriously.
The class was asked for their overall thoughts on the PSAT, and it was concluded that it was difficult, and many students stressed concerns about the time crunch.
It was a 50/50 result when asked if students got anxiety during timed tests.
When asked if it was important to get a good ACT score, David Miller mentioned, “Yes, because it opens many doors for scholarships.”
Ellie Westermeyer stated, “Yes, so I can get into a good college.”
When asked what was the hardest thing about taking the PSAT, Ellie Westermeyer commented, “Getting the questions done in a short amount of time,” and David Miller stressed, “Reading comprehension.”
Then the students were asked which subject was the most difficult, and it was concluded that
Reading Comprehension was the most challenging.
After taking the PSAT, David Miller commented he felt “good overall” and Ellie Westermeyer stated she was “relieved”.
It seems like the sophomore class is on the right track to prepare themselves for the ACT. Keep up the good work, Class of 2021!
