More and more students start to study for the SAT and ACT, otherwise known as the most important tests they’ll take during their high school career. For juniors, studying for the SAT allows them to become a National Merit Scholar, and receive access to thousands of dollars of merit-based scholarships. For seniors, both the SAT and ACT will heavily influence their chances of admission into the best colleges and universities across the nation. Even as more and more schools no longer require the SAT and ACT as part of a student’s college application, the simple truth is this: an excellent test score will allow your student to gain a necessary advantage over their peers when it comes to college admissions—in short, your student’s test scores could still make or break their chances of getting into the college of their dreams.

Some may take the SAT more than once (which you should), the next question is whether all colleges see all your scores or mainly the one you scored higher on. The answer is it depends. Some schools require you to send all scores and others only want your highest one. Make sure you check the requirements from the college.
Generally, you want at least a 1000 for any four-year college, at least a 1200 for higher tier schools, and at least a 1400 for an Ivy League. However, every school is different, and the best idea to figure out what a good SAT score is for the college of your dreams is to contact an Excel College Counselor and let them know your expectations, they can then let you know what will be expected.
The SAT and ACT are different in a few ways, but they both share the fact you will need to focus and you’ll still have to study, so best to pick one and commit.Both the SAT and ACT cover Reading, Writing (Grammar), and Math and are about 3 hours long. Here are the key differences:
- The ACT has an additional Science section, which is similar to the science passages you get on the SAT, but it’s a whole section of them.
- The ACT lets you use a calculator for the whole Math section, but the SAT only lets you use it for 1 of the 2 Math sections. BUT the ACT is way stricter about the tools you can use. For example, you can use a TI-89 on the SAT, but not on the ACT.
- You get less time per question on the ACT.
Because the ACT has more quantitative-style questions (i.e. the Science section), we recommend you pick the ACT if that’s your strong suit.
