Tips to consider as you factor testing and test prep into your plans for applying to college:


1. You have options! Every school in the country now receives the SAT and the ACT interchangeably.

2. Colleges strongly prefer to receive test results (SAT, ACT) directly from the testing services.

3. Admission officers tend to “superscore” your test results by compiling the best combination of subscores from the tests (ACT or SAT) you have taken.

4. Make note of schools that require SAT Subject Tests. Some will tell you which tests to take. Others will allow you to choose.

5. Consider the “test optional” opportunities that might exist among the colleges to which you are applying. A complete list of test optional colleges can be found at www.FairTest.org

6. Choose colleges at which your testing profile is a good fit.

7. Both testing agencies now concede that the tests can be coached. As a result, test prep may be a viable option for you.
