· to see how your performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college.
· to enter the competition for scholarships from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (grade 11).
· to help prepare for the SAT. You can become familiar with the kinds of questions and exact directions you will see on the SAT.
· to receive information from colleges when you check “yes” to Student Search Service.
