Colleges should be able to choose in which way they wish to accept or deny a student.
The entry tests give a second chance to student’s who have not done so well in school.
The ACT and SAT have questions which are similar to the material you will be learning in college.
If a college wants to use the entry test as a caliber they should be allowed because its their school.

Many students do not know what college they want to go to so all colleges in the U.S should have the acceptance procedure without the entry tests.
Students who did not do well and did not try for the four years in high school should not be rewarded with that big of a second chance.
When accepting students into college, the colleges should not rely only on the entry tests that the student takes but they should rely mostly on the grades that the student received all through high school and then rely very little on the entry test.
