Seniors:  The October and/or December test are still eligible for college scholarships

Juniors:  Some juniors have been asking “should I take the ACT or SAT now or later?” We encourage ALL college-bound juniors to take the ACT and/or SAT during 2nd semester of their junior year. The reason for waiting until 2nd semester is that a number of the questions used in the ACT or SAT relate to courses that juniors are currently taking. Taking the test earlier in the year means that the student has not had enough of the proper coursework to tackle these tests well. Remember you can take the test at O'Neill High. Taking the ACT at your home school is highly recommended. Testing in the 2nd semester of the junior year permits an early introduction to the tests with ample opportunities to re-test later. Research shows that over 57% increase their composite scores on retest. Colleges & scholarship organizations use the best score. Therefore, there is nothing to lose and everything to gain if you test during 2nd semester, then retake at least once and perhaps more. Becoming familiar with the content and format of the test questions is one of the best preparations for the test.
