Questions about the SAT and ACT

  1. Sep 19, 2011 #1
    I have a few questions about the SAT and ACT college admission tests.

    *How many questions are there on the SAT and ACT?
    *How long does each test typically take to complete?
    *How are the tests scored?
    *What is the "average" score for both tests?
    *Which test is easier?
    *Do certain colleges require you to take both tests, or just one?
    *Do community colleges require these tests?
    *Are these tests particularly difficult?
    *I did extremely well in high school (3.7 GPA) but for some reason, I was never given the SAT/ACT shortly before graduation, how come?
    *Is your eligibility for a scholarship based on these tests?

    Some of these questions can be answered by visiting College Board's website.

    Everyone, I would suggest that, given the OP's history, you think twice before responding to this thread.

    Is there anywhere online which includes the correct answers to every question on the test?

    Of course not. However, you may find sample or past papers on the college website.
