The SAT and ACT are different tests, with different goals and metrics. But did you know that, depending on strengths and weaknesses, the majority of students are likely to score higher on one exam versus the other?
In a highly competitive college admissions environment, every advantage counts – and that can include a higher standardized test score. Knowing clearly which exam could give your student an edge is a key first step in the test prep process.
Chyten’s revolutionary ‘ACT vs SAT Comparison Test’ and Magnostic diagnostic will tell provide: a student’s raw score, scaled scores, percentile ranks, score summaries by section, essay scores, and performance by question type and question difficulty. Most importantly, the test will indicate accurately which test a student is stronger on, or if it’s a wash…in which case they might want to take both, or focus on the test that they’re most comfortable with.
Here are three advantages that Chyten’s ACT vs SAT diagnostic test can provide to your student:
Parents and students save time and money.
It’s a lot easier and cheaper to prep for one exam than two – especially when a student knows exactly where they should focus their energy to improve, and perhaps most importantly, they know what areas don’t need work! Chyten’s strategy for test preparation is not one-size-fits-all. We will concentrate on the topics and core concepts in areas of weakness, which makes tutoring and test prep that much more effective.
Not to mention, since most students want to take advantage of superscoring, knowing which test a student is best at will cut down on the amount of studying that is necessary, and it will reduce the expense that comes along with taking both tests multiple times.
It can improve a students’ chances of admission to your top-choice school.
It’s not uncommon for a student to score 20 percentile points higher on either the SAT or ACT. The higher the standardized test score, the better it is for a college application. Many schools report that they’re decreasing their emphasis on standardized test scores. But when admissions officers at top colleges are making choices about who to accept and who to wait list or reject — even when the official policy at the school is ‘test optional’ — any potential advantage could make the difference.
It could increase a students’ chances of receiving scholarship money.
One way that a high standardized test score can benefit a student is the opportunity to be awarded “meritorious money” – the money that schools offer students whose stellar SAT or ACT scores will serve to increase the school’s average test score – and hence it’s national ranking. If a school wants a student, it is common for them to offer scholarship money to help seal the deal (for example, Chyten students have recently been offered $5,000 and $10,000 scholarships just to sign on the dotted line at Clemson and Auburn).
