College Exams (SAT`s)/SAT/ACT


Will not taking the SAT or ACT tests affect me getting into college? I'm 15 and a senior in high school and I've not taken them because my parents do not have the money.

Most colleges require the SAT and/or ACT scores for college admissions, but not all.  I think you should speak with your high school counselor and explain the money issue and ask for advice.  I am sure an arrangement can be made.  I would hate for you to miss a college opportunity just because you had not taken the SAT or ACT.
