With the changes made to the Michigan Merit Exam (MME), it's very common to have some confusion regarding the ACT® or the SAT®. You're not alone. Many parents have trusted us to point them down the right path because everyone knows we're here to help answer any questions and make sure you are confident in choosing the right test.
Here's the low down:
- Colleges in Michigan still accept both ACT® and SAT® scores for admission. That hasn't changed.
- What's changed is the test that schools administer for free during the MME. In years past, it was the ACT®. Beginning in 2015, it will be the SAT®.
- This does not change what students will submit for college admission and what colleges want to see from students.
- Essentially, the ACT® is still the preferred test for college admittance, while the SAT® will be used to determine college readiness.
While there may be some uncertainty about the MME going forward, one thing is for certain - from timing to remediation of content to organizational techniques, our staff at Mally A.C.T. is trained to help you and your student for both the ACT® and the SAT®.
