SAT AND ACT EXAMS
The SAT and ACT are college admission exams that test what you learn in high school and what you need succeed in college. Most colleges review scores from either the SAT or the ACT test as part of their admissions process. Please check the college admissions requirements of the schools you are interested in to see their specific requirements for SAT, ACT, the Essay section, and subject tests. There are also some schools for which SAT/ACT testing is optional or flexible, and these schools can be found here.
