Does your student intend on taking the SAT or the PSAT?
From the Collegeboard website at
Home-Schooled Student Registration
Home-schooled students can register online or by mail. When prompted for a high school code, enter: 970000.
Students schooled at home who do not have acceptable photo identification should download and print out a Student ID Form. Complete the form and take it to a notary public for validation. You must attach a current photo of yourself (the same photo requirements apply) to the form, in the area indicated, before the form is notarized. This form must be dated and is good for only one year.
You will be asked to sign the Student ID Form again at the test center.
The following information was posted to a homeschool yahoo group that I am on. I believe this can be helpful to many that may be planning on taking the these tests.
“This revolutionary course will give students all the tools needed to conquer the SAT and PSAT/NMSQT. Students will learn the logical patterns behind standardized test questions as well as necessary strategies that can help increase their test scores tremendously. A high score on the SAT or PSAT/NMSQT can open doors to college entrance and colossal scholarships that could include full tuition, room and board, honors dorms, graduate money and stipends to study abroad!
Many of their students have raised their test scores as much as 600 points and received scholarships over $200,000 from Ivy-League schools.
The 12 week program begins on June 5th at 10am and will show students how to ace the SAT so they can raise their scores and get scholarships to college. The SAT and PSAT are tests of logic (not high school subjects) and most students do poorly on them because they don’t understand the test. It teaches students how to look at the test questions correctly so they don’t fall for the wrong answer and it not only will explain why the right answer is right but also why the wrong answer is wrong. Students will gain confidence in their test-taking skills and be given the necessary tools for scoring high on these standardized tests.
