The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), and its competitor, the American College Testing (ACT), are widely used for college admissions in the US. SAT, owned and developed by the College Board, was introduced in 1926. ACT, produced by a non-profit organization of the same name, was first administered by Everett Franklin Lindquist, a professor of education at the University of Iowa College of Education, in 1959. High school students would complete in test in four hours or less, which assess their reading comprehension skills, mathematical abilities, and writing capabilities.
Is procrastination the best tip for studying? Most college students will attest to it, and freshmen haven't mastered the art of time management. And there are many ways to recall the lessons during the limited time. (Some students use cards while others have guides by their side. A few rather try unconventional methods like composing a song about it.)
Malia Obama's decision to take a gap year before her freshmen year at Harvard is not an uncommon case among high school graduates. The number of universities (that encourage students to take a year off) is increasing, such that schools like University of North Carolina offer scholarships for applicants who didn't follow the traditional route of education.
In "Orange County" (2002), teenager Shaun Brumder turned away from a life of drinking, partying, and surfing after Lonny, his best friend, was killed in a surfing accident. A novel by Marcus Skinner saved him, also inspired him to study writing at Stanford University. It happened to be the author's alma mater. Many teens may relate to Shaun's superficial existence (prior to the tragedy), but finding a novel that changed his life would be another thing.
Luis Buñuel, the Spanish filmmaker who poked at bourgeois values in his Surrealist films, once quipped that "our memory is our coherence". In other words, losing that memory would lose that basic memory of oneself. Accuracy on past events should be another matter, but creativity could give writers a free license on how they would interpret the past. After all, perspective could turn a written text into an interesting piece that might prompt readers to read it in its entirety.
You're about to go to college, but you haven't found your roommate. You don't have to worry about it, as you only need an open mind and a bit of consideration. It's easier said than done. Moreover, you're eager to make new friends as early as possible. You plan to be mindful of other people, even try to please them whenever there's a chance.
Dissertation writing is the most important piece of writing you'll undertake during your undergraduate career, so it's natural to have the jitters. There's only way to do it, and it won't be a walk in a park. It doesn't mean that it can't be manageable at all. You can have fun along the way. Planning will be one thing, where you must devote your free time to it.
Knowledge is all you need to write a good academic paper, as you must be able to demonstrate your academic prowess. You have to look for reliable sources, and there is much information to look over in a short notice. Let's start with the Internet: You're wise enough not to give Wikipedia a second chance. It's the site for students who are too lazy to do an extensive research on their assignment.
There will be cynics, there will be doubters. And then there will be you. It has something to do with Columbia Pictures doing a Spider-Man reboot with Marvel Films. It will be another summer blockbuster, dispelling any suspicions that it will be anything but the money. Screenwriters Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley would do the unthinkable: A summer film with a good story.
You're thinking about warm clothing, even if it seems like a permanent 27 degree Celsius at the moment. You're musing about the exciting scenes in the upcoming Marvel films (after watching the trailers), as you (momentarily) forget Spider-man. You're about to catch up on your Young-adult reading without giving some thought to your resolution during the last week of the (just-concluded) term.
