How Was The SAT For Williamsburg Prep Students?

For the most part, it was a very positive experience for the students at WP. The SAT is an entrance exam which is used by most colleges and universities. 

A junior that attends Williamsburg Preparatory, Flix Huang stated that, “The SAT overall was okay. The math section was harder, but I prefer doing the SAT on the computer since it’s way better and more convenient.

He continues, “Last year on the PSAT, reading essays on paper was harder since it was longer.”

Another junior that attends Williamsburg Preparatory, Hezekiah Austin, stated that, “It was decent, I prefer it on computers since it had a timer on it this time, but the math section was the hardest for me.”

Liana Cierria stated, “Some parts of it was easy while others were hard, the English Section was the hardest for me.”

A lot of students at Williamsburg Prep prefer doing the SAT online because the English passages were shorter, and they placed a timer for each section. This makes students learn how to manage their time while doing the test.
