I've been aiming for the perfect score all my life. I personally can't wait till the big tests :)

Is it bad that I like school, math, learning, writing, and everything in school?

No man that's probably a good thing!

SAT? What is that?
It's an USA test, you take it to see which college you can go to.

Like what YS said above, If I got a perfect score, I could go to any college.
Well, YS was kind of exaggerating there. Most Ivies reject tons of perfect score SAT applicants. It definitely impacts the odds of getting in, but GPA and extracurriculars also weigh on college admissions just as much if not more depending on your situation. Don't rely on learning all about college admission in high school, though. I'd recommend visiting the College Confidential Forums (http://www.collegeconfidential.com/) for any questions you may have. If you plan on attending a top university, then it is best to start preparing before you enter high school.

If you find the SAT difficult, I would recommend taking the ACT. The ACT doesn't penalize you for wrong answers, the only challenge is to answer like 70 questions in 35 minutes.
Took SAT three times, didn't get a high score so I took the ACT. Got high enough to get into an honors program at a university....
You make me smile!

I got:
730 on Math
620 on Reading
630 on Writing

Just shy of 2,000. I take the Physics and Math I Subject Tests soon.

The ACT's a lot easier. I aced the Science my last time 'round and got 35's on both English and Math. Reading was a 32.
