While grades are not directly reflected in college entrance, this is an important period to prepare for various tests for entering high school, and acquiring tips, habits and background knowledge.
"A period where English ability must be enhanced overall."
It is a good idea for students to be exposed to many types of content from news articles, novels and other material to acquire background knowledge, enhance speed reading ability, expressions within the sentence, and enhance reading comprehension associated with the SAT, the most important college admissions test in the United States.
Students should not merely read once and be done, but try to identify the sentence structure and characters, which will later prove helpful in understanding SAT Reading questions.
Also, effort must be made in writing book reports and other writing to enhance writing ability.
Entering high school with such fundamental abilities will provide a good foundation for having the right attitude about study, the SAT and various test.
Also, there are slight differences among each school, but students should be confident in the concepts for math and other natural science subjects and have prior learning. That way they can effectively prepare for the SAT I Math and SAT II subjects upon entering high school.
At this time, students should carefully select courses to take, which could be a big help when taking the SAT II subject and AP test.
The beginning of high school is the time when grades will begin to be evaluated for college admissions.
Students should take care with their GPA to ensure no grades are lower than a B.
This is a time where students should prepare for the SAT II and AP tests. This is a period to begin planning entry into college.
Therefore preparations should be made through consultations with a counselor regarding what tests will be taken in order to systematically prepare for the tests.
There is much to prepare regarding college admissions in 10th and 11th grade. Therefore it is necessary to take the SAT II around the end of 9th grade in May or June, and to try taking AP courses, but taking the TOEFL now is not necessary as the scores are valid for just 2 years. SAT II Math II C should be appropriate for students that are already accelerated in math subjects. Also, it would be appropriate to take the SAT II chemistry, physics or biology tests in November after studying at a learning center when school lets out either during the summer or winter vacation.
Also, take care when reading the books recommended by the College Board to prepare for the SAT. If you have been selecting special activities based on interests, starting now it would be a good idea to consider teaching, civic group involvement, internships and other activities where you can display your leadership skills.
This could be seen as the year to actively start preparing for college.
This is the period where you have to prepare with a goal in mind after deciding on what schools you would like to attend and what major you would like to study. You should carefully identify what the requirements are of such schools with a college counselor.
Generally, you should strive to maintain a high GPA, supplement any poor school achievement from the previous year, and take AP or honors classes.
Also, you should prepare by taking 1 to 2 courses each of SAT II subjects and AP. That way, prior to applying to college, by 11th grade, you can complete courses you are confident in, but did not take in the previous year.
In particular, the summer vacation after 10th grade and the start of 11th grade is the time to actively start preparing for the SAT I.
First you should focus on the critical reading and writing sections of the SAT I which is difficult to, and takes a long time to improve your score.
In 11th grade, there is not much time left, so try to prepare for the TOEFL from 10th grade as much as possible, if you received the highest score possible by 11th grade then you would have very favorable conditions for college admissions.
When considering the validity of the scores, it is appropriate to take the exam in the summer after finishing 10th grade, but do not take the exam prior to winter vacation of 10th grade.
11th grade is the most important year for college admissions.
In the United States, most college applications are completed by the first semester of 12th grade, therefore the various tests and preparations required for admissions should be completed by 11th grade.
Also, this is the period when students should stay focused on school GPA and activities, which is why this is seen as a very busy time for students.
Take the SAT I between October and January when you enter 11th grade based on the SAT content you prepared during summer vacation. If your scores are low try taking it again in May and June.
But, please refrain from taking the test without the adequate preparation.
Also, if you have already gotten the TOEFL out of the way, later you can focus on other important matters relevant to preparing for college admissions in the United States.
11th grade is a crucial period for counseling.
It is a good idea to come up with a list of colleges to apply to by the 2nd semester of 11th grade and prepare the college application documents by then as well.
You should have the basic framework for the application essay which is important for college applications.
You should mark on your calendar the dates when college applications should be completed and the deadlines and prepare to ensure that there are no mistakes.

This is the period when you will finish completing college applications.
By the beginning of 12th grade, you should prepare the college applications and documents required for submission.
Students that do not have their letters of recommendation by the summer of 11th grade should without fail obtain them by the fall of 12th grade.
In particular, pay close attention to the content of the essays as college admissions officers have a great interest in this aspect of the application.
Also, the first semester of 12th grade is the last time you can take an exam to supplement the areas you were lacking in 11th grade, therefore you must do your best to get the highest score possible.
If you must take the SAT I for a last time, it is possible to apply early for the November test, otherwise you can complete the regular application for the December test.
If you take it then, you must select the box that says you will not be informed of your scores, but have the scores directly sent to the College Board.
Even after having received a letter of admission, students who are then careless with their grades can have the letter of admission withdrawn in July or August during the final evaluation, therefore you should make effort with your grades until completing school.
Students that submit their applications in December should carefully check to see that their documents have arrived.
There is a difference in how each college accepts AP test results, but they can be helpful after being admitted to college, therefore a good method is to prepare for the AP exams in May.
