|No. Students can choose which schools will receive their scores and which scores
the schools will see.
|Score Choice is an optional feature. Students should feel comfortable sending all scores, since most colleges consider a student's best score. We recommend that students send all of their scores if they are unsure of which scores to send.|
The ACT writing is optional. Do I need to take the ACT writing?
We recommend that you take the optional writing section. Many colleges require that you do take the optional writing section of the ACT, so you want to check with the college admissions office for the colleges that you're interested in to see if it's required. (University of California requires the writing section.)
What are the SAT Subject Tests?
Subject Tests (formerly SAT II: Subject Tests) are designed to measure your knowledge and skills in particular areas, as well as your ability to apply that knowledge. Students take the Subject Tests to demonstrate to colleges their mastery of specific subjects like English, history, mathematics, science and language.
Many colleges, (University of California and other "high profile" colleges) require you to take Subject Tests.
Which Subject Tests should I take?
Before deciding which tests to take, make a list of the colleges you're considering. Then review school catalogs, College Search Engines or College Handbooks to find out whether the schools require scores for admission and, if so, how many tests and in which subjects.
Many colleges that don't require Subject Test scores will still review them since they can give a fuller picture of your academic background.
If you're not sure which Subject Test to take from a subject area and/or if you are prepared to take the Subject Test, talk to your teacher.
When should you take Subject Tests?
The best time to take a Subject Test is in the spring (May or June testing date) at the conclusion of the course in the subject.
How many times should I take the SAT Reasoning Test and/or the ACT?
We recommend no more than two times. If you are happy with your score, one time is enough. You should consider retesting if:
1. You had problems during the test, such as misunderstanding the directions or illness.
2. You ran out of time during testing.
3. You are not satisfied that your score accurately represents your abilities in the areas tested.
4. There is an obvious discrepancy between your test score and your high school grades.
