on preparing college

Which standardized test

should I take?

There are two types of standardized tests: SAT and ACT.

The general difference is test section, time, and method.

You can discover more on the "Standardized Tests" page. 

To choose between two tests, you should first take a timed full-length practice test of both. Then you can choose which test is a better fit for you. Content and question style are very similar, but other factors like how you handle time pressure and what types of questions you find most challenging can help you choose. Since there isn't any favor for either standardized test in most colleges and universities, you can choose freely between them. 

How many AP exams

should I take? 

It depends on what universities or college you want to go. If you are aiming for Universities with a ranking over 30, you should take around 6-7tests. since it is different for every universities, so we recommend you research the universities you are aiming for. 

What's the difference between "super score" and

"composite score"?

For ACT, it is the average of your best scores from each subject from multiple test attempts. (Not every school use this score, so you should check whether the school you apply requires a superstore or not.)
