SAT, ACT and Covid-19

Wondering what to do about SAT or ACT testing this year as a rising senior is enough to make your head explode. And finding out where your test is being held or if it has been cancelled has also been a challenge for some. Long wait times to talk to a representative about those questions has been part of the drill. The secondary source of info, schools, have also been difficult to reach for answers due to school closings.

Tired of the confusion, some students have simply decided not to test in light of the 
impressive list of colleges that have risen to the challenge of testing in the era of covid-19. Before you decide what to do, ask yourself 2 questions:

1) Do I tend to test well?

2) What is the entrance testing policy of the colleges where I am applying?

Students who don't do well on tests and whose colleges are not requiring testing are more likely to be better off NOT testing.

Students who test well and whose colleges are not requiring testing might also skip the test to be safe and avoid being around others.

Students who test well and whose colleges are wishy washy on the subject can go either way.

Students who test well and whose college are still requiring testing (small number of colleges) may decide not to apply at those colleges or to go ahead and take the test.
