Beverly Hills High School

College Admission Tests: SAT & ACT

College Admission Tests: ACT, SAT, and SAT Subject Tests
 
Beginning with the Class of 2020, all Juniors will be taking the official SAT in March of their Junior year, and all Sophomores will take the PSAT in March of their Sophomore year. The exam is provided school-wide by the district. Please review on-campus test preparation options below to help you feel confident with an admission testing plan and timeline.
 
Most colleges accept the SAT or the ACT, so students do not need to take both exams. Keep in mind that many colleges and universities, including the UC schools, require the optional Writing section on the ACT. Students who plan to take only the ACT should sign up for the optional Writing section.

Take a look at THIS ARTICLE to learn the differences between the tests. 

The best way to determine which test students should focus on (SAT or ACT) is to take a full-length practice SAT and a full-length practice ACT then compare the two scores as well as their experiences. BHHS offers such exams, usually in late Fall for Juniors and Spring for Sophomores and Juniors, dates can be found on the daily bulletin and emailed via Jupiter. Local test prep companies also offer full-length exams for FREE.
 
Some colleges and universities are "test optional." This means that they either do not require standardized testing or they will accept alternate forms of measurement like a graded paper. To learn more, visit the National Center for Fair & Open Testing (FairTest) at 
www.fairtest.org
