4 Tips to Decide Whether You Should Take the ACT or SAT

If standardized testing is problematic and if your school doesn’t require it--why should you take the ACT or SAT test at all? After all, how much does the SAT matter, anyway? 

Well, there are actually a number of reasons you might want to take the ACT or SAT test even if your target university is test-optional. Below are four tips to help you decide whether or not you should take the ACT or SAT exam.

Tip 1: Know Your Target Schools’ Policy

Keep in mind that not every institution in the US is test-optional, test-flexible, or test-blind. Some schools still require test scores for admission! It’s important that you know what your preferred university’s rules are.  Keep in mind that standardized test scores aren’t only required for admissions. Some universities have majors and departments for which admission is very competitive, and there instances in which those majors will themselves require test scores for you to be admitted.

Tip 2: Think About How Scores Can Help

Unless you’re applying for a test-blind school, you’ll need to think about how submitting SAT or ACT scores can affect your chances of admission.  Like we mentioned earlier, there’s definitely evidence that at test-optional schools, students who submit test scores are more likely to gain admission than those who don’t. So if your test scores are pretty good, you can really benefit from including them in your application! (Not sure what a good score is? Check out this article on good SAT scores and this one that covers good ACT scores.)  The good news is that if your test scores aren’t as high as you’d like, with a little hard work, you can raise them. In fact, they’re much easier to improve than other areas of your college application, like your GPA or your “spike.” Start by checking out our complete guide to the SAT (or our ACT guide!) and learning more about the test structure and how to take it. Then you can look through our blog for tons of free test prep resources to get you on the right track. And of course, you can always check out our online test prep services to get the extra boost you need.

Tip 3: Figure Out Your Finances

While many universities that have moved to a test-optional admissions policy have done the same for their merit-based scholarships, not all of them have. There are still some schools that weigh test scores as well as GPA when determining the amounts of scholarship aid a student is eligible for.  Additionally, some private scholarships ask for test scores as well. If you aren’t able to provide them, then you won’t be able to apply for those awards. Taking the SAT or ACT is a good way to ensure you’re able to apply for (and win!) as many scholarships as possible.

Tip 4: Make an Informed Decision

Right now, you may be planning to only apply to test-optional schools. If that’s the case, then you may be able to skip taking the SAT or ACT. But what happens if you find the perfect program at the perfect school…only to realize they require test scores? Will you be willing to pass on that opportunity?  Before you decide that you aren’t taking standardized tests, make sure you do your homework. The truth of the matter is that having test scores in hand means you can apply to almost any college in the United States, whereas skipping the SAT or ACT will limit the number of universities you can apply to.
