The SAT is a multiple-choice, pencil-and-paper exam created and administered by the College Board. Starting from 2023, the exam will be held online and students will be allowed to use their own electronic devices. The purpose of the SAT is to measure a high school student's college readiness and to provide universities with a common data point that can be used to compare all applicants.

 

The SAT has 2 sections, each worth 800 points: Reading/Comprehension and Mathematics. The average score is 1060 and most competitive schools require a score above 1300 for admission and/or scholarship.

 

Most universities have adopted an SAT test optional policy since the pandemic, and this trend is expected to continue. It is possible to apply without an SAT test score, but students are still strongly encouraged to take the test if they are applying to the most competitive universities or scholarships.

AP stands for Advanced Placement exam and is also administered by the College Board.  AP tests are college-level exams in specific subjects and are administered in May following the completion of an AP course taken at a student's high school. At most universities, a high enough score will earn student college credit.

 

AP scores range from 1 to 5. A score of 3 or higher is generally considered good because it means you passed the exam! 4 is considered very good and 5 is particularly impressive as it is the highest score. Also keep in mind that each university sets its own policy regarding AP credits. Some schools only give credit for 4 or 5 points.

 

Taking AP exams is not a requirement for US applicants.  It is proof of the student's academic readiness for university-level education. AP scores are also accepted for applications in the UK and EU.

IELTS (International English Language Testing System)

IELTS was developed to provide a fair and accurate assessment of English language proficiency. The test questions were developed by language experts from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the USA. The test consists of four parts: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.

 

IELTS test scores range from 1 to 9. The minimum target to be achieved in IELTS should be 6.5 points corresponding to the B2 upper intermediate level. A score of 7.0 and above indicates that the student is at an advanced level.

 

IELTS scores are valid for 2 years from the test date. For this reason, we recommend that students take the IELTS test at the end of Year 10 to get out of the way, but results will remain valid until the end of Year 12.

 

 

The TOEFL test is the leading English proficiency test developed in the USA. The exam can be taken online or as a traditional paper exam.  The online exam includes a speaking section that requires students to talk about a topic.

 

Many schools require candidate TOEFL scores, with a total score of 90 or 100 on the TOEFL internet test or 580 or 600 on the TOEFL paper test. Students often think that the TOEFL test is more difficult than the IELTS test. The main difference between the two tests is that the TOEFL usually contains more academic content, while the IELTS test focuses more on general English language use.

 

Like IELTS, the TOEFL test is valid for a period of 2 years, so it is recommended that students take one from the end of grade 10.
