Taking SAT/ACT sophmore year
If SAT/ACT is taken early (like in the fall of 10th grade year) in order to apply for a summer talent search program, will the results later be seen by colleges when you apply for college admission? If you have a bad day when you test in 10th grade or get a bad score, could it count against you later? If so, is it worth it to take the test early in order to attend a first choice and highly desirable summer program? Current school recommends PSAT in 10th grade as well as subject tests when you complete requirements for a course of study.
