Students with their sights set on college need to plan ahead to take college board tests many admissions programs recommend.
The College Board, a national association that produces tests for evaluating college-bound students, has announced its schedule for the 2000-01 Scholastic Aptitude Tests, better known as the SATs.
Test dates for the basic SAT will be Oct. 14, Nov. 4, Dec. 2, Jan. 27, March 31, May 5 and June 2. Other dates apply for the SAT II, Advanced Placement exams and the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT).
Dates for the ACT assessment tests will be Oct. 28, Dec. 9, Feb. 10, April 7 and June 9.
Registration deadlines are about five or six weeks before each test.
The College Board and ACT sell a variety of products to assist students in choosing colleges, finding financial aid and succeeding at the tests.
