Do I really have to take a test to get into college? 

 

               

 

     The answer is, in most cases, yes!

 

You can get ready by taking the PLAN (required of all 10th grade students) and the PSAT/NMSQT in 10th and 11th grade (optional). The tests will provide you with an indication of how you will do on the ACT and SAT and possibly qualify you for a national college scholarship. Toward the end of your junior year and in senior year the SAT I and/or ACT should be taken. The best time to take the SAT II (subject tests), if required, is as soon as you have completed the course. See your counselor for specifics regarding the college entrance and placement exams.
