Paraphrasing is when you use different words to say the same thing; in other words, it’s when distinguishable synonyms are employed so that phrases are similar in meaning but different from one another.
Oftentimes, you will have to repeat yourself when you are writing your SAT essay. This can occur at any point in your essay, but will most often happen when you refer back to your prompt, use one idea to support or advance another (you will have to repeat your original idea for clarity or cohesiveness), and in your conclusion.
One of the keys to writing a successful SAT essay is to paraphrase; this technique allows you to reiterate ideas and concepts, your position, without repeating yourself.
