“[I]t makes sense to give yourself a fair shot at the tests, with adequate preparation. The more options you have, the better!”
These national exams are designed to provide US colleges with more information about students’ academic potential relative to students in other parts of the US and globally. Though these exams—like the SAT, ACT, AP, and IB programs—are widely administered each year, they are far from easy and require much preparation. Additionally, the challenge of a new format (many are offered online) and pressure to perform well can make many test-takers disappointed with their results. Nonetheless, many college admissions offices still value the quantitative information with which to filter applicants, heavily emphasizing the importance of standardized testing within the college application process.
In recent years, however, the suspension of the test score requirement due to COVID19 restrictions has raised questions about the future of these tests. Many families are left to wonder how to prepare students for their best future—especially when it comes to college admissions in 11th and 12th grade. Should younger students plan to spend time studying for and taking these tests at all?
Though there is plenty of debate surrounding the efficacy and necessity of these standardized tests, some students can’t escape the task entirely. Some colleges are reintroducing standardized test requirements. Not to mention, college admissions experts state that good scores will almost always help your chances. In other words, it makes sense to give yourself a fair shot at the tests, with adequate preparation. The more options you have, the better!
