Take the Test as a Senior

People talking behind treeIf you wait to take standardized tests, you are likely to earn higher scores, because you will have had more courses and more experience. The trade-off is you won't have as many opportunities to re-take the exams to boost your scores.

Make sureĀ  you take the exams in time to meet regular college application deadlines, which usually fall between Jan. 1 and March 15 for September admissions.
