Many high-achieving students end up taking both SAT Subject Tests and AP Tests during their time in high school. SAT Subject Tests are required for admission to most competitive colleges, and AP Tests and coursework are encouraged.
The preparation process for college by most students and parents usually begin by comparing the ACT and SAT tests. The SAT and ACT generally cover the same topics. Both ACT and SAT scores are used for college admissions decisions and awarding merit-based scholarships. And most colleges do not prefer one test over the other.
When it comes to Advanced Placement (AP®), this consists of university-level curriculum and examinations for high school students. And these days more and more students are taking AP classes and more and more are taking them at earlier stages of their secondary school experience. One of the reasons for this rush to take AP® courses stems from remarks made by the Dean of Admission at Harvard about 5 years ago in the New York Times: “We have found that the best predictors at Harvard are Advanced Placement tests and International Baccalaureate Exams, closely followed by the College Board subject tests. High school grades are next in predictive power, followed by the SAT and ACT.” - New York Times.
Hence, by challenging themselves to take AP® courses, students show college admissions boards passion, commitment and a self-driven mentality, with the ability to succeed in college.
