How do I choose which standardized tests to submit to colleges?

Hey everyone, I'm a junior, and I've taken both the SAT and ACT. I'm not sure which scores I should submit to colleges, or if I should submit both. Can anyone provide some advice on how to make this decision? Thanks in advance!

Hey there! It's great that you've already taken both the SAT and ACT. That gives you a solid base to make a decision. When it comes to choosing which scores to submit, it really depends on a few factors. First, you'll want to compare your scores on both tests. There are many online resources, like concordance tables, that can help you compare your scores and see which test you performed better on. Generally, if you have a significantly higher score on one test, it's a good idea to submit that one. However, if your scores are pretty similar, you might want to consider submitting both. Another factor to consider is the specific colleges you're applying to. Some schools have preferences or requirements for one test over the other, so be sure to research that. Finally, think about which test you felt more comfortable with or which one you think better showcases your strengths. Ultimately, the choice is yours, but considering these factors should help guide your decision. Good luck with your applications!
