Alexis talks about the best pacing strategy for the SAT test in episode #199 of the Prepped and Polished Podcast. In this episode, you’ll learn how to properly circle problematic multiple-choice problems and go back to them at the end.

Pacing Strategy for the SAT Test

US News and World Report featured us a few years back on 9 tips for SAT success. We were the last tip, number nine. So you can check it out. Basically, in the article, what I’m talking about is it’s important to really give each question its fair share of time.

So, if you’re looking at a 20-question multiple choice section and get stuck on a question, you have to recognize if you’re struggling. It’s more important to keep moving through this through the section versus getting boggled down on one question. Spending minute after minute, that’s time wasted that you could spend on other questions. So, what you need to do is put a big circle around that number that you get stuck on and just keep moving on through the section.

You want to move through the entire section and try to answer all the questions that you can answer. Then, when you’re finished with a section, you go back to all the circle questions that you circled along the way.

So remember, when you get stumped, circle it, move on, and go back.
