Can I submit both ACT and SAT scores to colleges?

Hi all! I'm a junior and I've taken both the ACT and SAT. I'm wondering if it's beneficial to submit both scores to colleges, or if I should just submit the one that's stronger. What do you guys think? Thanks for your help!

Hey there! It's great that you've taken both the ACT and SAT! To answer your question, yes, you can submit both scores to colleges if you'd like. However, it's important to consider whether submitting both is advantageous to you. If one score is significantly stronger than the other, it might be better to submit just the stronger score. Most colleges will focus on the highest score, whether it's the ACT or SAT, so there's not much benefit in submitting both if one is clearly better. On the other hand, if both of your scores are strong and comparable, submitting both could show the college that you're consistent in your performance. It's ultimately your decision, but make sure to research the specific colleges you're interested in, as some may have preferences or requirements regarding which test scores they'll accept. Good luck with your college applications!
