Dr. P suggested back in October that Lily apply to take her SAT or ACT test ( the ones given as college entrance exams in 12th grade) through Duke, in December. Studies have shown that 7th graders can do as well as if not better than 12 graders on the test. They feel no pressure to pass, yet for the most part have the knowledge required. Lily sat the exam along with one other kid in her class and they both came out saying it was hard.
Months and months went by and finally we received her results. Th
ey weren't very clear but from what we could make out she had done very well. More time passed and an email arrived stating I needed to attend a webinar if I wanted to understand the results. I did.
Child scored within the top 5% of the country. She held her own against the 12th graders and in most cases surpassed them . She was getting an award at the State level. 2 weeks ago was the award ceremony.
