Why Do We Do This?
The SAT and ACT exams are arguably the most significant exams that a high school student will take. With more students applying to college each year, and budget cuts limiting the number of students accepted into incoming freshman classes, these tests are now more important than ever. How many points on the SAT separate a student who gets accepted vs. one who is rejected from his/her chosen college? According to a Wall Street Journal report, only 30 points separated students who were accepted from those who were rejected. That’s only 3 or 4 total questions on the SAT!
These Exams Measure How Much Money Your Family Makes.
Unfortunately, it is widely known that there is a very strong correlation between family income levels and SAT Scores. The above chart represents data from the College Board for students who took the SAT in 2009.
You may notice that as income increases by $20000, SAT score rises by approximately 12 points in EACH section!
