The SAT is something that has been imposed to students throughout high school, and especially during there junior and senior year. It is presented as the ultimate entrance exam, and the most important thing that you are going to use when applying for college, and in the hopes for a scholarship, yet is it really useful or fair? The answer is a big "NO" it is not necessary, and it is completely illogical. This so call admission ticket puts you through standardized testing which require a lot of memorization, but not actual knowledge of this classes. What is even more aggravating is that they do the same test for everybody, they test everybody for skills that anybody could pay exaggerating amounts of moneys to learn before this test, but those it really test or shows what we really need in present time? The world today has many problems because this people are being judge by numbers instead of ability, they are being judge by test they take in areas which they don't shine that much, but there leadership, and individuality is saw as incorrect and not the right thing because is not what the test ask. So what society has come to in which this categories test are the only meaning to being successful...

The resolution states "SAT useful?" The con side has brought up some good points in making the use of the SAT seem illogical and that we should use a different measuring stick. But the debate is not whether or not the SAT is good, it is whether it is useful. I would like to go to college. College graduates make more money in the long term. They also are able to get to higher positions inside companies. College is useful for a fulfilling life. Because the SAT is a major part of deciding if colleges with admit you, the SAT is also useful. The con side is free to argue against me but the only way I see how is by saying college is not useful, which we can see plainly is false.
