Three standardized testing reminders

Here are three spring testing reminders for sophomores and juniors:

1. Visit the websites of any colleges you are considering and review not only which tests (if any) are required, but also how each college treats your scores if you take an exam more than once.

2. If you are a strong student with the goal of attending a selective college, consider taking Subject Tests in June for the related courses you’re completing.  For example, if you’re taking biology and doing well in it, you’ll never know that material better than you will as you’re preparing for final exams.  That’s the perfect time to take the Biology Subject Test. 

3. Juniors should prepare for and take either the SAT or ACT (but not both) at least once this year.  If you haven’t done that yet, there’s still time to register to take an exam this spring.
