The ACT or the SAT? How do you decide?
BACKGROUND ON THE ACT & SAT EXAMS
Every college that requires a college admissions test accepts the SAT or ACT. Each test is tailored for different types of students. The ACT has been gaining popularity over the past five years. In fact, in 2010, more students took the ACT than the SAT. Your decision to take one test instead of the other will not help or hurt your chance of gaining acceptance to college. The best strategy you can learn is to be efficient in your quest towards admission to college. Focus your study time on one exam.
COLLEGE & STANDARDIZED TESTS
The road to college can be confusing and hectic. As you begin to think about college and creating the best application package possible, your admissions plan should begin with the question, “Which test should I take?” Colleges rely on standardized exams as a benchmark, although they also assign significance to college preparation course work, strength of curriculum and grade point average, along with extracurricular activities. Do not simply go along with what your friends do. Determine which test makes the most of your strengths to help you determine which test best fits you.
