What are standardized tests?

Posted on Jul 01, 2016

Standardized tests are an important aspect of the application process. Formats primarily include the SAT or ACT, and SAT Subject Tests. Most 4-year colleges will ask that you take these tests, as it allows institutions to compare students from different high schools across the globe and make admissions decisions.

Many colleges post the average scores of their admitted students on their website. It is important to remember that while the scores will allow you to identify colleges that are within your range, this is not the only indicator for college selection. A college may be the right fit for you, even if the average score is higher or lower than yours.

The standardized test scores may also help you qualify for scholarships. Some colleges and educational organizations award scholarship money to students based, in part, on SAT scores.
