SAT Test Prep at MathAltitude

Why Should You Take the SAT/ACT If It Is Optional?
Some colleges and universities have made the SAT optional.  However, even if your dream school is on the list of colleges that say the exams are “optional” it may still be in your best interests to take them.

  • Some Schools Require the Test
    Even if you initially intend to apply to a college that does not require you to take the SAT, you may change your mind on where to apply to and those new schools may require that you have taken one of the tests. This could turn into a potential issue if you discover a school you want to apply to late in the application process. It is in your best interest to take one of the tests on the chance you do decide to apply to another college.

  • You Could Win Scholarships
    If you score high enough, you could win recognition for your achievement in addition to a scholarship.

  • Taking the Exam Gives Your Application A Boost
    It could actually be the tie breaking factor if your acceptance status ties with another student. Colleges also look at the extra initiative you took as a plus if you do decide to take the ACT or SAT. A good score can show off your skill sets in reasoning or a particular subject.
