  • No, it is pointless.

    I understand that the SAT was designed to test a student's Math, English, and Writing readiness for college, but in doing so, it overlooks the student's academic background provided by his school. Grades are a statistical representation of how well the student has understood the material taught in his classes - if this is true, then why do we need the SAT to gauge out a student's academic readiness? The student's grades and teachers are undoubtedly a more accurate representation of the student's academic background - teachers work with their students most of the week and thus have a keen eye on them. They have a lot to say about a student's academic background, such as their strengths and weaknesses, whereas the SAT is not holistic in doing so. The SAT score provides superficial insight into a student's academic background - a low score may suggest the student did not prepare enough, but does it suggest how long the student prepared, or whether he gave his best effort? The SAT does not represent the amount of material the student learned over the course of his academic career, let alone his understanding of the material learned in class.

  • Sat should be abolished

    Well they should be abolished because it is just reaping and wasting time and it doesn't matter for your high school exams just think all that hard work should be in a notepad not on a sheet of paper you will forget what you learnt please just think cacarefully about that subject.

  • Are we just a test score?

    Why do we always have to sit there watching others roam free while we wait for the day our sats come to find we have to work our buys off just to succeed and then we end up getting judged by a mark in a test aren't we more to a test score?

  • Sats stay r

  • Yes, abolish the SAT and all other national standardized tests.

    The increasing nationalization of our education has doomed many to fail later in life. Education, especially for higher institutions, should be in the hands of schools themselves, at the very most in independent school districts, not in the hands of a greedy corporation that only seeks to line its own pockets while leaving many of our youngsters behind. Personally, I believe that local institutions, such as schools, teachers, and parents, can best determine a child's needs and tailor their education, which the College Board inherently cannot succeed at.

  • Is it truly accurate?

    Can a 5 hour test accurately measure 10 year's worth of learning?
    Not to mention, there are lots of smart people out there that are just poor test takers. There are also those that have anxiety issues; I mean, with all of the pressure to do well, even I have a little anxiety.
    It just doesn't feel right to base it all on one test. It's kinda like those novels you read where everybody's life is predetermined.

  • They aren't cost effective

    SATS cost the government 20 million pounds per year. Personally I don't think this reflects the work that pupils are putting in as well as it gives us so much stress! The government are paying to us as pupils stressed. Can't this be used on general teacher and learning and more resources???

  • It doesn't support anybody's real intelligence.

    If someone who has dedicated their whole lives to better themselves and receiving a great education, and have the grades and background to support them, should not have to take a standardized test just to prove themselves through a 4 hour long session that they have worked for their entire life.

  • It should not be banned

    If we ban sat's no one will care about their work study etc...
    And however' this is the only way to know how smart your child is and how much is not
    No sat's should not be banned or no one will care about study's
    Would you like that
    Never

  • Hell noooooo !

    Because we all had to do them and it wouldnt be fare also it helps decide what level and set you are going to be in also beacuse they are just tests and wont do any harm so do not scrap sats at all its simple just dont keep them for goodness sake

  • No it should not

    It shouldn't because if someone spent 18 years not caring about family or personal life and got straight As, then why does one have to take a 4 hour long test session just to prove themselves to get into a good college when some people don't even speak english, so it should not be allowed.

  • The people who can't pass SATs usually think so, but they're wrong.

    No, there is no reason for the SAT to be abolished. It seems like every year, there's someone who either could not succeed on the SAT, or has a child or family member who failed miserably. And every year, we have to hear from them as to they think we should abolish the SAT. You and your kids not being smart enough to score well is not the SAT's problem!

  • not at all

    No, they do not need to take away the SAT at all, since it is one of the best ways that we have found to see how smart that a kid is, and that it is a way to know if they need to be taken in at a college or not.
