  1. Ok, So im in the 7th grade im homeschooled, and im going to regular school next year. I have went to regular school before but i tried homeschooling and im going back next year. This homeschool program im with has this thing where all the home school kids in the area go to a place where they take SATs. Is it mandatory that I take them? ALSO I bought these sat books that are exactly what you do in regular school but i bought them to study with. But if i dont do them will i have trouble with enrolling in school next year?
