SAT vs ACT
ALTERNATIVES TO ENTRANCE EXAMS
PORTFOLIOS….Some colleges and universities will allow students to submit a portfolio of “graded” student work in lieu of test scores on in addition to them. Check with the college of your choice to find out if they will accept this alternative method. Graded student work most often includes essays, projects, written assignments from core subjects, including language arts, science, social studies, and/or math in the student’s junior and/or senior year. Work must have been graded.
FAIRTEST.ORG…. Some colleges and universities do not require either the SAT or ACT test. Some will take the test scores to add into the “mix” of their holistic approach to admissions. However, others don’t want them at all. The website FAIRTEST.ORG will tell you which colleges and universities across the country do not use these exams.
Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school. At least half of all students take the SAT twice — in the spring as a junior and in the fall as a senior. Most students improve their score the second time they take the SAT.
