What is a good SAT and/or ACT?

Asked Winchester, Virginia

I have taken the SAT twice now and I'm about to take the ACT, but what is a good score for both? Is there at least a good score to get? #sat #act #help #school #ihavenoideawhatimdoing

Hey Gina, don't worry! You're on track just by studying and taking the tests. I think a "good" score will vary based on your goals.


Here is a list of popular schools that you could go to with different SAT/ACT scores (https://www.niche.com/blog/the-most-popular-colleges-for-every-sat-score-range/) and you could look up more schools in your SAT range here (https://www.collegesimply.com/guides/colleges-by-test-score/).


Good luck!
