Advantage Testing SAT Q&A

Is my GPA or SAT score more important?

At most colleges in the U.S., both your GPA and your SAT score are important for college admissions. Your GPA reflects how you have performed in your high school coursework; your SAT score demonstrates how you have performed on a standardized test intended to measure core academic skills. Note that many universities have Test Optional policies and no longer require test scores.

Remember that your college application also includes application essays, letters of recommendation, and your extracurricular activities. While each component of your college application is important, you will be evaluated across multiple dimensions.
