Understand the importance of the SAT and ACT
Why Are Crimson

The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) and ACT (American College Testing) are standardised tests used in the US college admissions process to measure applicants' developed verbal and mathematical reasoning abilities. The results provide an indication of a student's readiness for university.

Most US universities require students to submit an SAT or ACT score. They are a particularly important means for international students to demonstrate potential as curricula and learning experiences differ by region. 

The SAT is comprised of three sections; Math, Evidence-Based Reading, and Writing. The ACT is similar but has the addition of a science component. The structure of these tests is different from what you're used to at school and an extra layer of preparation and revision is needed to obtain the best scores. So it's good to know what's what before facing them.

In this webinar, we will explain what the SAT and ACT's entail and the key differences between them. Our expert speaker and Harvard Alumnus, George will provide you with some helpful tips and tricks when it comes to how to study for these exams.

I already knew how to get good grades and test scores, but it wasn’t until I met with my strategist sophomore year that I realized the importance of extracurriculars. I had just been in school clubs and varsity sports, but was able to start working on a non-profit that we integrated heavily in my application to Harvard.
