How much harder is the SAT compared to the PSAT?

QUESTION
How much harder is the SAT compared to the PSAT?

ANSWER
Hi Ellie! The SAT is a longer version of the PSAT, with additional sections in each subject area and it will include an Algebra II and essay writing section. Here is a link to a detailed comparison chart of the two tests – http://www.powerscore.com/sat/help/psat.cfm . Typically, students take the SAT in the spring of their junior year and by that time you will have most likely taken Algebra II so it will not seem that much harder to you. Taking practice test prior to the SAT will help you get used to taking the 4 hour test which will also make it feel a bit easier!
