When should you begin taking the ACT or SAT?

SoSportz.com- For high school student-athletes the ACT and SAT test are crucial to getting into a college and playing a sport at the next level. Some say the tests are pointless and some say they're culturally bias but the bottom line is that it's a test that needs to be taken seriously.  An athlete can have all the talent in the world but without a passing score their talent can be overlooked.

When should you begin taking the tests? Most students take the tests in the spring of their junior year and the fall of their senior year. I advise to take it earlier so you can get familiar with the test and to give yourself more opportunities to make the required score for the college you want to attend.  There are prep courses to prepare for the tests as well. You have to work hard in your education just like you do in your sports.  It's time to change the game and take your education to another level. Below are the testing dates for both ACT and SAT.
