Chalk Talk: Tips for the SAT and the ACT
Most colleges require standardized testing, and they’ll take both or either the SAT or the ACT. Many colleges will also consider multiple sessions, and pull the best scores from each. This is called Super Scoring. So, a student might take the SAT once and do really well in Reading, and take it again and do well in Math. The college will take the best score from each time and use that to average the total grade. Many will also do this for the ACT, though very few will average the two tests together. The tests are similar, but there are differences. The ACT has a science section, and the math is generally considered to be more difficult. The essay is at the beginning of the SAT and the end of the ACT, and the ACT even has the option of students not writing the essay. Colleges require the essay, but if a student has taken it before and done well, this can be a time—and brain—saver.
