As a part of the application process, most US colleges and universities require scores from one of the US standardized tests, SAT or ACT. However, some colleges and universities do not require international applicants to take admission tests, and some institutions do not ask for admission test score from any applicant.
US standardized admissions tests are primarily multiple choice tests that measure the skills necessary for undergraduate study. US colleges and universities use admission tests to assess all applicants against the same standard. The SAT is offered six times a year in March, May, June, August, Oct, Nov and Dec.
