     TSI testing determines a sophomore’s future, whether or not that student will be eligible to take college courses in high school.

With this in mind, taking a test that weighs so much can either be a great achievement for some or a source of major stress and anxiety.

I took the TSI in hopes that I can get some college credit beforehand,” sophomore Anastasia Marshall-Vanportfleet said. “Though now that I’ve taken the test, I anticipate a lot of long nights and stress ahead.”

For incoming juniors, the realization of the nearing end of their high school career can immensely affect their mindset of whether or not they will be able to handle the workload.

“I’m really proud of myself for passing the test ’cause I know that not many do,” sophomore Vanessa Ndahiro said. ” But now I’m just a little concerned that with me going to be a junior already, with other responsibilities, if I can handle college courses in high school right now.”

The TSI test is only a test that determines if a person can enroll in college courses during high school. When a person passes said test, this already implies that the student has the knowledge and capability to undergo the college class.

Regardless of anticipated stress or pride of this achievement, the TSI test is simply a test that advances a high school student to obtain college credit.
