The national average for the SAT tends to be around 1500, plus or minus 100 points. So you only did about average compared to the rest of those who took the test, but since you're only in seventh grade, I suppose it's not that bad.

For a 12 year old, they're pretty good. However, there's not really any reason to take the SAT that young, since it doesn't really do anything for you in 7th grade. But yeah, that's not a bad score for someone your age; I'm sure you'll be able to get it up to like a 2100-2200 by the time you're actually applying to colleges and all. That'd be a good score. Congrats! Best of luck!

There are classes to prepare for PSAT/SAT exams. Part of what is usually covered is test taking techniques./ I have taken the liberty of including an answer that I prepared for another student. There are some techniques that can be used to make you a better test taker. Some of them are: Get a good nights sleep before the test. Do not study the say before the test. Read all the instructions carefully. Answer all the questions. No blanks In short answer questions leave the original answer once you decide about it. In multiple choice questions look for the opposites in the choices . One of them is probably correct. In writing an essay label carefully the number of each question and the section that you are answering. Reword the question and use the rewording as part of your written answer. Write neatly.

You might consider a different school, or private high-end tutoring. I've seen kids (usually from really small schools with little academic competition) who are straight A students take ACT tests and are shocked to realize they aren't as academically prepared as they thought they were. This might be a hard pill to swallow, but he'll be more likely to succeed when he's been over it already with a professional trained to help him in Chemistry, Biology, Algebra, Geometry, Physics, English and so forth. There are 'test taking" strategy books out there, but only go so far if he doesn't know/ understand / or comprehend the material. You might try looking for materials on more effective studying strategies. It sounds like he's using a method that is not very effective for him. It took me well into my college career to learn "how" to study and what method was best for me. Interestingly I learned what was best for me by interacting with people who were a heck of a lot smarter than me and watched out they did it. So if you can't afford a professional tutor ask you son who the smarted person in that particular class is and see if they will help him. He might be surprised how they (and I'm sure it may be a different person for each subject) study in different ways. Exposing him to these different methods certainly couldn't hurt him. Good luck.
