So parents, talk to me. My daughter took both the SAT and ACT this past Spring. She's not taken the subject tests yet. Her SAT scores are on the lower side for the highly selective schools (and there are a couple on her list.) Her ACT score puts her on the higher side for the same selective schools.
Math noticeably dragged down her scores on both tests (not bad math scores but a big gap between math and verbal.) She's working on a refresher course this summer and wants to retake the ACT in September. That part of the plan sounds good to me.
My question, is it worth her retaking the SAT and taking the subject tests? The high end schools on her list want either the SAT with 2 subjects or the ACT. While I suspect her subjects will be strong, it seems doubtful that she'll improve enough on her second SAT to surpass her ACT score.
What choices did your children make and what sorts of encouragement and support did you offer.)
