University/College Entrance Exams: An Overview
Prospective colleges/universities are looking for students who take a challenging course load, who have maintained a high-grade point average, and who have scored well on the SAT, SAT II, ACT, and/or the ACT Plus Writing.
Students need to check with their prospective colleges/universities to determine the appropriate entrance exams and what constitutes a competitive score.
Since students need to do well on their entrance exams, it is important to thoroughly prepare. Students should take the PSAT during their freshman, sophomore, and junior years in order to prepare for the SAT, which they should start taking the spring of the junior year.
