Many top universities in the US use academics — your grades and standardised test scores — as an initial ‘cutting factor’ to decide whether your application will move onto the next round of reviews!
The Scholastic Aptitude Test, or SAT, is the most widely used university admissions test in the US (followed by the ACT). The exam can be quite difficult and most students admitted to highly competitive universities score in the 90th percentile — which is why it is so important to start your SAT prep well in advance.
