I wonder if anybody is seriously looking for much higher ACT or SAT scores in San Francisco or near
The ACT and SAT or SAT Reasoning Test can be described as decent tests of capabilities and knowledge. They are not really great predictors of success following college and they are dubious predictors of success in college.</br></br>
Considering competitive four-year universities have made them a major factor in their admissions decisions and merit scholarship awards, it is sensible for students in San Francisco or nearby seeking admissions at competitive colleges to prepare for the ACT and/or SAT Reasoning Test or SAT.
The ACT or SAT Reasoning Test or SAT constitutes a standard that can help in college or university admission decisions, given disparities in secondary school quality in addition to students' choice of courses in the San Francisco area.
The ACT or SAT Reasoning Test or SAT is actually coachable. Everyone improves with ACT or SAT prep. The only issue is how much. The ACT or SAT Reasoning Test is not a measure of fixed practical knowledge, capabilities, or "intelligence". (Ask our many students who have raised their scores up to 850 points after a few months of SAT Reasoning Test or SAT preparation.)
Universities overweigh the ACT or SAT Reasoning Test or SAT simply because other measures, such as GPA, moral character, and school competitiveness, are difficult to compare. Overweighting the ACT or SAT gives a great opportunity to high school students who are lacking strong grades, or are in less highly-regarded schools. Overweighting the ACT and SAT Reasoning Test means students with good grades and from good secondary schools have to protect them with solid ACT or SAT scores in San Francisco.
I wonder whether anybody sincerely wants very much higher ACT, SAT Reasoning Test, and SAT Subject Tests scores in San Francisco?
