College Admission and Score Choice: What You Must Know

Original post made by Elizabeth LaScala, another community, on Dec 28, 2009

Hollie took her SAT exam in the spring of her junior year in high school and performed poorly. She prepared over the summer and tested again in the fall of her senior year.

This is the problem of our education system - there is no common view on it. Every new or future politician is trying to change something, promises that it will be better and clearly, but few things are changing. Hollie is a victim like thousands of other students. We are going to influence on the process, but, sometimes, it's unreal. We at Web Link organized an essay contest to prompt new generation to alteration from within,I hope, together, we'll help all.
