Common Myths About the SAT and ACT
Myth #1: The SAT is more widely accepted than the ACT.
Colleges do not have a preference. You can apply to the same schools regardless of which test you take, but your scores are very important. The tests provide admissions officers with a data point they can use to compare you with other applicants alongside your high school GPA, letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities, interview and personal essay. Many students take both tests; if they do poorly on one, they may do better on the other.
Myth #2: You should not take the SAT or ACT multiple times.
For some students, taking the test once may be enough. For others, taking it two or even three times can be beneficial. If you were distracted or not feeling well the first time you took the test, consider retaking it if there is a likelihood of getting a better score. Be sure to learn about specific requirements at your preferred colleges if you want to apply for a scholarship or plan on competing in college athletics. If your scores don’t meet the requirements, take the test again.
Myth #3: There is no way to improve your SAT or ACT score.
Again, this is not true. Both the SAT and ACT are coachable tests. With test prep and personal attention from your expert Livius Prep tutor, you CAN improve your score. If you work hard at familiarizing yourself with the test and identifying and fixing your mistakes, you may even dramatically increase your score. Livius Prep’s SAT and ACT test prep and tutoring curricula include strategies and tips refined from decades of industry knowledge and experience that will help raise students’ scores.
Myth #4: SAT and ACT practice tests are a waste of time.
Another myth! By 10th grade, all students should be proficient in the subject matter that will be tested on the ACT and SAT, and practice tests are one of the best ways to know if they are prepared. The Livius Prep ACT Actual Condition Practice Test and SAT Actual Condition Practice Test are comprehensive and multifaceted practice exams that help students become completely prepared for whatever testing challenges lay ahead. Taking the test that best fits your skills and abilities will help you earn the highest scores.
