ACT or SAT
Most colleges require the ACT or SAT for admissions. These standardized tests offer a way of assessing students’ educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. A student’s score is an important part of the application package, along with his or her transcript, essay, and letters of recommendation. Read the application materials of colleges you are interested in to determine which test you need to take. Admissions test scores are not the only factor considered by college admissions boards, but they are an important part. With this in mind, you should consider taking the test you need as early as possible. Early scores will give you time to determine the areas where you may want to better prepare and time to retake the test.
