The SAT is the more widely used exam in this part of the country, but colleges will accept either the SAT or ACT. If you are unhappy with your SAT scores, you may want to consider taking the ACT.
In addition to the SAT Reasoning Test, some schools also require the SAT Subject Tests. Check with your guidance counselor if you are unsure as to whether or not you need to take the SAT Subject Tests.
Students are strongly encouraged to prepare in advance for these exams. By taking the time to review the instructions and practice questions, students will be more comfortable with the format of the test. Sample tests are available online and in the guidance office. In addition there are many test prep courses available.
Many colleges require that the official SAT/ACT scores be sent directly from the College Board and/or ACT. When you register for the SAT/ACT you can send your scores to 4 colleges (for no additional fee). Additional schools can be added at any time, for an additional fee. It is highly recommended that you take the SAT at least twice, once in the spring of your junior year and once in the fall of your senior year. Regardless of the number of times you take the SAT, colleges will look at your highest scores when making admissions decisions.
