ACT is over! Requests? :)

Long time, no post! Sorry about that! I finally finished taking the ACT! So, how did it go?

English: A bit harder than the usual practice tests but I still think I did well nonetheless.
Math: It was good! Though there is one question that I am sure I got wrong.
Reading: 3 out of the 4 passages went well! However, the remaining one was a bit of a shocker - it wasn't like anything I had seen out of all of the practice tests I took and it was quite similar to a certain component in the SAT (cannot disclose anything). That's what I'm not sure of - even though it wasn't that hard, it was definitely time taking. And with 40 questions to do in 35 minutes, I did rush a bit.
Science: This, I think, was my best section! I was able to finish it using the strategy that I had adopted and practiced! It worked and I even had a minute left!
Essay: I was kind of looking forward to the essay because I knew it would be school related just as all of ACT's prompts are. I write down a few pints as soon as I saw the topic and wrote the essay! I didn't have time to review all of it, however, I did review half of it.

Well, I'm glad that's over! Now all I have to do is wait for my scores (trust me, this is boring and I wish I could get them the following day instead).

Now I have noticed that I have gained a couple more followers and a few more people have been visiting my blog! So, do any of you have any organization-related post requests? It can be anything! Feel free to leave a comment below and I'll do my best to do them! Go ahead!

That's everything! Please make sure you subscribe/follow so you know when I post next! Thanks! :)

SAT - It's over! :)

That smiley face is back up there next to the title - I finally took the SAT yesterday!

So, how did it go?
Well, the essay was good. I was able to write 2 entire pages with some time to spare to read over the essay.
Math was easy for the most part, I think I got only 1 question wrong.
Writing went pretty well too, but I think I got 1-3 wrong.
Critical Reading - this was the section that I was the most nervous about. The vocabulary part was pretty good, though I know I missed a couple. As for the passage based comprehension, no idea. I did the best that I could and I'll just have to hope for the best. I didn't omit any questions at all, but now I'm thinking I should have maybe omitted a couple.

I was able to manage my time well - in all of the 10 sections, I had time to check my answers. In math, I was able to check all of them, in writing most of them and in reading, the ones that I weren't so sure of.

Overall, I think the test went well! In fact, there was a school drill in between the test so the test got over about half an hour later than it was supposed to!

After the test, we went to IKEA (aka home & organization heaven!) to look for some furniture - I might get a bed/desk from there! Oh, and had some $1 frozen yogurt there too (which by the way, is super delicious)

Now what? I have to study for the ACT, which is next Saturday! I resumed ACT prep today (put it on hold because of the SAT) and so far, so good. I'll probably do a 5 3 day countdown for that too!

That's it! Thanks a TON for reading this post! Did any of you take the SAT/have any other final? Or anyone you know? If so, how did you/they do? Make sure you subscribe/follow (buttons in the right sidebar) so you know when I post next! Thanks! :)

Aaah! It's finally here! I'm taking the SAT tomorrow! On another note, though, today was a good day - I managed to get quite a lot done but not stress myself out too much.

Here's what I did:

SAT Countdown - 2 days!

Yikes! Tomorrow's the last day I have before I take the SAT! Still have to come up with a master plan for studying tomorrow!

Meanwhile, here's what I did today:

SAT Countdown - 5 & 4 days!

*Yawn* Today and yesterday have been quite busy, if I say so myself - slept very late yesterday and didn't get time to post. It's also pretty late today. Sorry about that!

Anyway, here's what I've done today and yesterday:
