Do I need to submit both my SAT and ACT scores?

Hi everyone, I'm a junior and I've taken both the SAT and ACT. I'm not sure if I should submit both scores to colleges, or if I should just submit the one that's higher. What do you guys think? Thanks for any advice!

Hi there! It's great that you've taken both the SAT and ACT. In general, colleges will accept either the SAT or ACT, so you don't need to submit both scores. Most students choose to submit the score that they performed better on, as it can give them a competitive edge in the admissions process. To determine which score is stronger, you can use a concordance table to compare your SAT and ACT scores. These tables are available online and can help you see which of your scores is more impressive to colleges. Additionally, some colleges are test-optional, meaning that you don't have to submit any standardized test scores if you don't want to. Always research the specific requirements and policies of the colleges you're interested in applying to. Ultimately, it's up to you whether you want to submit one or both scores, but submitting your stronger score is generally a good strategy. Best of luck!
