High school seniors applying to colleges and universities throughout the country have one last opportunity to put their wits to the test on the ACT and SAT in December.

Students looking to take SAT on Dec. 2  must register by Nov. 21.

The last test date for the ACT is Dec. 9 and has a Nov. 17 registration deadline.

This year students in Gwinnett and Cobb County had the best scores for the SAT according to results released by the Georgia Department of Education.

“This year’s SAT results provide an important baseline as we continue to equip Georgia’s students with the tools they need to succeed,” said State School Superintendent Richard Woods in a press release. “I’m encouraged to see a score in the area of evidence-based reading and writing that exceeds the national mean, as literacy and the ability to communicate effectively are essential skills for our students no matter what path they choose.”

Making The Score Count

Part of the stress to hit a high score stems from students competing for admission into their dream school and for thousands of dollars in grant and scholarship money.

The month of November marks National Scholarship, and it’s also a prime month for students to begin applying for money to fund their education.

It is estimated that each year $46 billion is awarded to students through scholarships and grants by the Unites States Department of Education.
