To Test or Not Test?
IT DEPENDS! Some students have already scored high on the SAT and/or AC…some students MAY want to retest…some may choose to NOT submit test scores to colleges! EVERY college is DIFFERENT! EVERY student’s SITUATION is DIFFERENT! Please research individual college admission testing and scholarship requirements before deciding to test (or not test). You can also ask Ms. Inouye (after you do your research) if you should submit scores!
Students are encouraged during their JUNIOR year to begin taking the SAT and/or the ACT for college admissions. Seniors who have NOT STARTED taking the SAT and/or ACT should register for the early Fall tests. Most colleges and universities accept EITHER the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT with writing. Only SOME colleges and universities require the SAT Subject test(s). Check with each university individually.
When registering for the SAT or ACT, you can send up to four scores for free to colleges or universities. Be sure to select the four choices at the time of registration. Student must UPLOAD a headshot photo at the time of registration. No shades or hats, head shot only facing directly at the camera.
Students may register ONLINE with a credit card. Remember...Kalāheo school code is 120143.
