Check with your counselor to make sure you’re taking the courses you need to graduate from your school. Check with the colleges you’re interested in to learn their admission requirements and recommendations. Some colleges that recommend or require an admission test use it for placement, not admission. The numbers shown here are approximate and based on information colleges reported in College Board’s Annual Survey of Colleges.
