Most colleges require every candidate to provide, along with an extensive application, results of either the ACT or SAT. Both exams are designed to provide college admissions officers with two things: an evaluation of readiness for academic success in college and a common yardstick to use in comparing students from a wide range of educational backgrounds.
SAT and ACT scores have a major influence on a high school student's future. They are also the easiest piece of college admissions data to improve. SAT scores are also the basis for many merit-based college grants, which are crucial for middle class families who want their children to be able to attend their first choice college.
Raising an SAT/ACT score by 100 or more points can be achieved in a number of weeks by a diligent student learning test taking strategies, studying weak areas, and doing practice questions. Winter/
