ACT vs SAT

Getting into a top US university requires good test scores. Let’s review the two major tests options available: Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Testing (ACT).

Scoring well on one of these tests means you don’t need to sit the other, a top ACT score is equivalent to a top SAT score, so which test should you choose?

  • One important difference is duration, SAT (3 hours) vs ACT (2 hours 55 minutes).
  • The ACT allows the use of a calculator for the math questions, SAT does not!
  • If you don’t like science then consider the SAT it doesn’t have a science section, ACT does!
  • Both tests have optional essays (with additional time)

Here’s the  SAT and ACT test scores for Yale :

Test score ranges (25th to 75th percentiles) for enrolled freshmen :

  • SAT-Verbal: 720-800
  • SAT-Math: 710-800
  • SAT-Writing: 710-790
  • ACT: 31-35  (source: YALE) 

Before making your decision on which test to use for your college application, consider using an online testing service that offers practice tests, Magoosh offers a range of tests at affordable prices. Goodluck!

Tesla Stock is Going to Crash!

tesla

Tesla is an innovative car and solar energy company, and is founded by Elon Musk. The stock has been the source of a lot of controversy due to a sky high valuation (Tesla market cap $53.9 Billion), despite Tesla not expecting to be able to turn a profit until 2020 (source: seekingalpha).

The company is betting on it’s latest Model 3 electric car ( currently in production) to deliver financial results, any delays or mistakes to the production of the Model 3 could cause the stock to crash, & investors will be left with a sore head!

The high stock price of Tesla ($323.95) is boosted up by investors faith in the company to become a leader in autonomous driving and electric vehicles, there is no guarantee to investors Tesla will win. It is likely that larger car manufacturing companies with stronger balance sheets will win in this market in the long run, unless Tesla can pull a rabbit out of a hat!
