Testing Tips

Standardized testing is only one small part of who you are as a student. Some colleges require that you submit test scores as part of the application process or as part of scholarship competitions. With few exceptions, colleges and universities across the United States accept both the ACT and the SAT. The choice up to each student to decide which test best highlights academic skills and potential. A large number of colleges are removing the requirement for test scores as part of the admission process. You can search the list here. 


If you would like to learn more about the SAT and the ACT, the information at FairTest.orgmay be helpful.
