I am under the impression sig figs for the tests do not take a toll on the grade, what if the correct number of sig figs being used alters our calculations which alters the answer to the problem?

It's advised that you avoid rounding/sig figs as you work out the problem. You should use them at the very end.

Sig figs usually align with the value in the problem with the least number of places.

To avoid getting a different answer, you should not round or alter significant figures until you complete the problem that you are doing!
