Who cares about your test scores, anyway? Well…
- Colleges do, and not just for admissions – they also use your scores to place you out of basic freshman classes (which can save you lots of money down the road)
- Scholarships do – there’s free money for college, but it may depend on your test scores
- Your future boss does – many companies request your test scores on your job application now, even if you’ve been out of college for more than 10 years
Are you prepared to get your best score?
If you haven’t taken the SAT or ACT before, or if you want to increase your overall score more than 250 points (SAT) or 4 points (ACT), you should start preparing three months before your test date! If you’re close to your goal score, you should begin your re-preparation no later than 6 weeks before your test. Test strategies are pretty easy to grasp, but your brain needs some time to absorb your practice (a.k.a. homework) and allow you to use your new strategies with confidence on test day.
