The NEW SAT vs. ACT

The SAT and ACT are two competing examinations for college entrance.  Most colleges do not prefer one test over the other.  Neither the SAT or ACT is harder than the other. Different students tend to do better on one test over the other.  As a suggestion, take the SAT and ACT and see which one you score higher on, then concentrate on that test.

PSAT

The PSAT is a College Board examination administered in October of every school year.  It is an officially released version of a previously administered SAT exam.  The exam is scored from 20-80 for each of the three parts, Critical Reading, Mathematics and Writing.    The PSAT itself has NO bearing on college admissions.  So, why take it?

A) The PSAT provides you with good information about what you can do to prepare for the SAT examinations you might take later on.
B) The PSAT is used by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation to qualify students for various scholarships based on their Junior year PSAT scores.
C) Colleges and universities use the information from the PSAT as a means to begin communicating with students regarding higher education and financial aid opportunities.
