College Entrance Exams

Most colleges require test scores for admission and placement purposes.  All Wisconsin students take the ACT test during the spring of their junior year.  This score will be acceptable for college admissions applications. Students frequently increase their scores when they re-take an ACT or SAT test, and college-bound students are encouraged to take it a second time.  The vast majority of college admissions and scholarship committees will use your highest set of scores; therefore, there is nothing to lose by retaking a test.
