FAQs


SAT/ACT preparation should start 3-6 months before a first exam. Of course students who spend upwards of 12 months on diluted preparation will realize their full potential on the exams.

You only need the SAT or the ACT, though you can try both. Some schools like NYU, though a decided minority, are letting students apply without SAT/ACT scores.

There are differences in the duration and number of questions in each section. The ACT has a scientific reasoning section that is tested sporadically in both the English and Math SAT sections. The essays are very different - the ACT is argumentative while the SAT is explicative. We offer a first SAT and ACT mock free at ITS Central’s Exam Center.

This depends on the schools which you apply to. Generally, more selective schools are more likely to have SAT II requirements (2 or 3 tests).
