I'm sure this topic has come up here before, but our DS in 7th grade is considering taking the SAT this May. He is currently taking Alg 2 in person at the high school (with a 3.97) and taking 8th grade GT ELA and remaining grade-level classes at the middle school.

We have encountered opinions within our family and friend circle that vary from very Pro to very skeptical about why we would do this. I am just wondering if anybody has any pros v cons about this? We realize this test will not be factored into his college applications, but thought perhaps as he was finishing Alg 2 it may be a good baseline and also practice for this type of test.

Hopefully, some of you have encountered this decision before and have some concrete reasoning why we would do "such a thing" haha
