    October 2016 PSAT results are in, but what do they mean? How can PSAT scores help students determine whether the SAT or ACT should be favored? The PSAT has long been thought of as a gateway to the SAT, but it can be just as useful in helping students decide whether to go with the ACT instead.

    Do You Have to Be a Science Whiz to Master ACT Science?

    If you're a student taking the ACT for the first time, you might be worried about the ACT Science section. Of all the sections on the ACT, the science section feels the most unfamiliar, technical and specialized.

    What Is the Future of SAT Subject Tests?

    Astute readers may note that the removal of the Subject Test requirement does not seem to correspond with a weakening of the competition for admission to these elite schools. In fact, the precipitous falloff in colleges requiring Subject Tests overlaps with increasingly lower admission acceptance rates and has resulted in only a modest decline in the numbers of students who choose to take Subject Tests anyway.

    What Can You Read to Prepare for the ACT or SAT?

    To improve their scores on the ACT and the SAT, students do not need to read novels like The Catcher in the Rye and 1984. For students who despise reading assigned by their English teachers, any reading is better than no reading at all.

    Should I Take the ACT or SAT Again?

    Compass directors have countless conversations with families about whether or not their students should retake the ACT or SAT exam.

    You Just Took the PSAT. Now What?

    A few million high school juniors and sophomores took the PSAT last week. It gave them an early glimpse at the SAT along with some low-stakes first-hand experience with college admission testing in general. While PSAT scores will not factor into eventual admission decisions, taking the PSAT is considered a significant step along the path to college.

    Superscoring ACT and SAT and Score Choice

    Superscoring Many in college admission talk about reading applications holistically and supportively; one way they can do this is by "superscoring" standardized tests. This means that if you take the SAT more than once, the admission office will take the highest section score across test administrations and assign you a new, higher total score.
