The SAT & ACT: What The Tests Are, Why They Matter, and What You Can Do About Them
July 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Parenting a teen through the college admissions process isn’t easy. Every aspect of the application process carries more weight than ever before and, even worse, seems very different from the way things used to be. The SAT and ACT are no exception; with constant public and secret revisions, the tests differ dramatically from the ones we took thirty–or even just three–years ago. How can you keep up with what the tests are, why they matter, and what you as a parent or guardian can and should do about them?
Ask an expert.
Get all the answers from a 25+ year veteran in education…for free! Join Mike Bergin for a full review of the state of the SAT & ACT, their importance in the admissions process, and how the situation is evolving right now. We will definitely cover planning and timelines, and you will definitely be able to ask questions on the critical issues:
- What the SAT and ACT are, why they matter, and what you should do about them
- How to determine which test is better for a specific student
- When is the best time for a teen to begin preparing and actually take the tests
- How evolving college admissions policies will affect your high schooler
- What test optional really means and who it helps
