When Rachel Franke first took the SAT, she scored 1,820 out of a possible 2,400 points.
Not bad for an eighth-grader.
Since then, she has taken the college admissions test five times, scoring higher each time. On her final attempt, she scored a 2,220.
So it was no surprise, she said, when she also did well on the PSAT, a test most students take their sophomore year to give them practice for the SAT.
“I didn’t even know I was taking it until that day,” Franke, 18, said. “But it tests you on math and English, and those are my two best subjects.”
