Writing on ACT or SAT?

Very few colleges require the writing portion of the ACT or SAT. Check college websites. 

PSAT/NMSQT FOR GRADE 11 (JUNIORS)

College Board provides a wealth of information about how PSAT is scored, how to understand your score report, and much, much more.

There are also free prep resources through Khan Academy (listed to the left) and Study Point - HERE is their information.

This video is a good/quick explanation of your PSAT Score Report and more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5i-bOhSzyig

The Selection Index Score for National Merit Commended Students in the Class of 2020 was 221.

SAT SUBJECT TESTS

In some cases, colleges require two or three SAT Subject Test scores for admission. Up to three Subject Tests can be taken on a single test date. The test is usually taken around the time a coures finishes (for example, a junior who is taking AP Chemistry may elect to take the Chemistry Subject Test in May or June, as the school year ends).
