College Entrance Tests

There are several types of exams that students may need to take for admissions to various colleges or universities. Here are some of the most common ones:

  1. SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test): This is a standardized test widely used for college admissions in the United States. It measures literacy, numeracy, and writing skills that are needed for academic success in college.
  2. ACT (American College Test): This is another standardized test used for college admissions in the United States. It covers four academic skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning.
  3. CLT (Classic Learning Test): This is an alternative to the SAT and ACT and is accepted by a growing number of colleges.
  4. SAT Subject Tests: These are hour-long, content-based tests that allow you to showcase achievement in specific subject areas where you excel.
  5. AP Test (Advanced Placement Test): These are college-level exams on specific subjects and are administered in May upon the completion of an AP course taken at a student’s high school.
  6. TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language): This test measures the ability of non-native English speakers to use and understand English as it’s read, written, heard and spoken in the university classroom.
  7. GED (General Education Development): This is a series of tests that, when passed, certify that the test taker has met high-school level academic skills.
