7 Things That Are Less Fun Than Taking the SAT

Hi there, Shmoopers!

We know, we know. Test day is the worst. But reality check: it could be way worse. While you prepare to take the SAT® this Saturday, here’s a list to help you keep your chin up.

7 Things That Are Less Fun Than Taking the SAT

1. Working in an early-1900s slaughterhouse

Seriously, even a summary of the details is enough to make you squeamish.

2. Digging holes all day, every day

We’re exhausted just reading about it.

3. Reading Clarissa from beginning to end

It might be worth it in the end, but imagine trying to read this doorstop in one sitting.

4. Solving 274939247 ÷ 359809 by hand

No, really—without a calculator. The SAT Math section is looking a bit better now, huh?

5. Hearing the dentist say, “Oops!”

Ouch. And when Dr. Dentist has all those sharp tools in your mouth, don’t even think about asking what happened.

6. Having a day as bad as Alexander’s

Gum in your hair, a cavity, and nothing good on TV? Way worse than a four-hour test.

7. Finding out that your wife is actually your mother

Oof. At least he didn’t kill his dad or something, too…oh wait.

Feeling better about taking the SAT yet? If you need a little more preparation before the test, head on over to our SAT Exam Prep resources here.
