Practice Scholarship Tips
- What is Official SAT Practice?
College Board and Khan Academy® partnered together to offer a FREE and personalized Official SAT Practice program to help you improve your SAT scores. There are thousands of practice questions, video lessons, practice tests, and more.
- How do you link your accounts?
Create a Khan Academy® account on satpractice.org and link your College Board and Khan Academy® accounts. Next, click the prompt to agree to send your scores from the College Board to Khan Academy® to successfully link your accounts. Watch this video for guidance.
You must link your accounts for your practice hours to count toward the $1,000 Practice scholarship.
- How can you earn entries?
Spend six hours on Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy® practicing for the SAT to earn your first entry. Earn one entry for each additional hour you practice, up to a total of 20 hours.
Increase Your Chances
Increase your chances of winning by practicing more hours. Earn your first entry by practicing six hours, then earn an extra entry for each additional hour of practice, up to 20 hours. A recent study showed that 20 hours of practice on Khan Academy® was associated with an 115-point score increase from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT.
Dates and Deadlines
Scholarships are awarded every month from January through October 2019. A new eligibility window starts on the first day of each month and ends at midnight on the last day of the month. The drawing occurs on the first day of the following month.
Each month, 150 students will be randomly selected on the drawing dates to receive a $1,000 scholarship. 75 of those scholarships will go to students whose families earn less than $60,000 per year.
We’ll notify qualified students by email to check their results on the My Achievements page.
Your My Action Plan progress tracker will update when you’ve earned an entry. After the first drawing, you’ll also see your earned entries on the My Achievements page.
If you started practicing and linked your Khan Academy® account to your College Board account, you’ll immediately see your practice progress.
You earn your first entry once you practice six hours. You can earn additional entries for each hour you practice on Khan Academy®, up to 20 hours.
You must link your Khan Academy® account to your College Board account for your hours to count toward the Practice scholarship. Any practice hours you complete before linking your accounts will not count toward your College Board Opportunity Scholarships progress.
Practice hours update once per day. If you’ve recently practiced on Khan Academy®, wait at least 24 hours to see your practice time on our site.
The My Action Plan dashboard will update once a day, while Official SAT Practice updates more frequently. Wait 24 hours to see your practice time appear in My Action Plan.
If you still see differences, that may be because Opportunity Scholarships practice time only accounts for time actively spent working on questions, watching videos, and reading articles. The practice time on Khan Academy® reflects the total time you spent logged in to Official SAT Practice.
