SAT and ACT Testing Schedule at PVHS

Pleasant Valley High School - College Testing Schedule

Colleges recommend that students test in the late spring of their junior year.

2018-2019

The SAT attempts to measure reasoning skills. The ACT is more achievement based, testing math, natural science, social studies, and English usage. For some students, the SAT is an accurate gauge of ability, but for others, especially those with strong knowledge of science or history, the ACT is more advantageous.

 

IT IS MOST IMPORTANT THAT STUDENTS CHOOSE THE TEST THAT BEST COMPLIMENTS THEIR STYLE OF COLLEGE PREPARATION.
