Millions of test-takers sign up for the ACT, SAT, or another standardized test every year. Admissions officers rely on test scores when making acceptance decisions. So it's important to understand admission tests before you start applying to colleges or universities.

Our guides walk through everything you need to know before taking a standardized test — and we also offer study tools and tips that can increase your score.

Are you applying to college for the first time? Or perhaps you have your eye on business or law school? You'll likely need to take a standardized test as part of the admission process. 

Prepared students do better on admission tests. But what's the best way to prepare for the ACT or SAT? And should you take the GMAT or GRE if your program accepts both? Use the resources below to learn more about standardized tests for college.

ACT

More than half of all high school seniors took the ACT in 2019. As one of the most popular undergraduate admission tests, the ACT is a must for many college-bound students. 

Check out our resources on the ACT to learn about the exam format, scoring, and how to boost your ACT score.

GMAT

Business school is one of the most popular options for graduate school. And many business programs, including top MBA programs, require GMAT scores. 

By memorizing our GMAT guide, you'll learn more about the exam and what skills you'll need to increase your score. 

GRE

Graduate programs in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, education, and engineering require GRE scores. Many business schools also accept GRE scores as well. 

But what is the GRE, and what format does the exam use? 

Visit our GRE guide to learn more about the test. 

LSAT

Interested in law school? Then you'll need to take the LSAT. 

The exam includes reading, reasoning, and writing sections. And its focus on logical reasoning and persuasive writing make the LSAT different from many other standardized tests. 

Our LSAT guide walks through the exam sections, LSAT scoring, and when to take the LSAT. 

MCAT

Before applying to med school, you'll need to master the MCAT. 

Among the longest standardized tests, the MCAT clocks in at eight hours. It tests your knowledge of biological systems and your critical analysis skills. 

Check out our MCAT guide for information on the test format, scoring system, and cost of the MCAT.

SAT

One of the oldest admission tests, the SAT remains one of the most popular today. 

But the next few years will bring major changes to the SAT, including a move toward digital testing. 

Before studying for the SAT, check out our SAT guide to learn more about the test and upcoming changes.

TOEFL

The TOEFL measures your English language skills and your preparation for college-level study at American colleges and universities. It's the most common English-language assessment for international students.

Before you sign up for the TOEFL, visit our TOEFL guide to learn more about the assessment and alternatives.

Application Essay

The personal essay helps us to become acquainted with you as a person and student, apart from courses, grades, test scores and other quantitative information. An essay is usually up to 650 words, or half a page long, and should be written without assistance from others so we can see your true English language skills. Your essay course should answer one of the following questions:

  1. If you have an exceptional talent or skill you are particularly proud of, please share it with us. Examples may include talents in athletics, dance, entrepreneurship, music, theatre or visual arts. How have you developed or demonstrated this talent or skill over time? Most importantly, what makes this talent or skill meaningful to you?
  2. RIT is a kaleidoscope of curious minds, each embraced for their uniqueness, yet united in our chase to achieve something, perfect something, or realize something. We look for the passionate, the creative and the focused. What is it you hope to achieve, perfect, or realize as a student at RIT?
  3. Across the globe, we are connected as one community—sharing the same problems and opportunities. Some of these include education, the environment, health care and inclusiveness. When you think about the future, how do you plan to contribute to guiding our society? What impact do you want to have on the world?
  4. Why have you chosen to apply to RIT? This essay should include why RIT appeals to you, the reasons why you’ve chosen the program/major you wish to pursue, and how you expect this program/major to prepare you for life after college. If you are applying to more than one college or program, please mention each college or program to which you are applying.

Official High School and/or College Transcript

If you are a freshman applicant, you must submit official transcript/s from all previous secondary or high school/s you have attended. If you are a transfer student and have less than 30 college credits, you must submit transcript/s from all high schools. Transfer students with any college credit taken or earned must submit transcript/s from colleges you have attended, even if you did not complete your studies at a school. The transcript/s should be sent directly to RIT/NTID by an authorized school representative, whenever possible.

Test Scores

The submission of ACT or SAT scores are no longer required by RIT/NTID. You may still take the ACT or SAT and have official scores submitted to RIT/NTID. “Official” means that the scores must be sent to us directly from the ACT or College Board (SAT) or the applicant’s high school guidance office. Not every country offer the ACT or SAT in close proximity to your place of residence.

The TOEFL or IELTS exam is required for students from countries whose language of academic instruction is not in English (these countries are exempt from the TOEFL/IELTS). Official scores must be sent directly to us by the TOEFL or IELTS.

The RIT/NTID code for sending the official scores from the ACT is 2870. The RIT/NTID code for sending the official scores from the College Board for SAT is 2760. For the TOEFL and IELTS, you will have to contact the test centers directly to order a score report to be sent to us.

The applicant is responsible for all costs associated with taking the test(s).

One recommendation letter is required, but more are welcome. The individual writing the letter may submit the recommendation by email to NTID’s International Admissions Counselor, Rick Postl (Rick.Postl@rit.edu). The recommendation letter must be sent to us directly by the person writing the letter, not the applicant. Most recommendation letters are written by teachers, school counselors or an individual who knows your academic background. No family members may write the letter of recommendation.

Audiological Record

An audiogram is required for deaf and hard-of-hearing applicants to confirm substantial hearing loss for study at RIT/NTID. You may submit an audiogram from your audiologist or have your audiologist complete the audiological record form. The audiogram must show hearing loss in both ears and be “unaided” (tested without amplification).

In lieu of an audiogram, we accept the Disability Government Identity Card.

Declaration of Financial Support Form

The total cost for study at RIT/NTID at the reduced tuition rate for eligible deaf and hard-of-hearing students is approximately USD $50,000 (2020-2021) and is adjusted on an annual basis. See Tuition and Fees for deaf and hard-of-hearing international students for a schedule of costs. There also are additional costs beyond what is charged by RIT for tuition, room, board and student fees such as transportation, winter clothing, books and supplies and the SEVIS fee. Specifics may be discussed between you and your admissions counselor.

Please complete all sections on the Declaration of Financial Support form and provide supplementing documents (i.e. bank statement to report available funds, regardless of amount, and mail original copies to RIT/NTID. Tell us “zero” if you do not have any money (cash or savings) instead of leaving the form blank.

All forms and documents must be dated no greater than six (6) months preceding the date of your completed application. We recommend that you send the Declaration of Financial Support Form and supplementing financial documents last as we need your most current financial-related records. Conditional admission may be offered upon receipt of all academic-related application materials to use the admission letter as you pursue additional scholarships.

Killexams : Here are the five things you need to keep in mind for US University application process No result found, try new keyword!Mumbai: Every year, thousands of Indian students navigate the U.S. university application process, which often proves to be a difficult task, without knowing about EducationUSA and the counselling ... Tue, 02 Aug 2022 20:27:56 -0500 en-in text/html https://www.msn.com/en-in/health/wellness/here-are-the-five-things-you-need-to-keep-in-mind-for-us-university-application-process/ar-AA10fqer Killexams : Tips you need to know for hassle free UK study visa procedure

The UK has some of the most detailed visa laws in the world with dozens of sub-clauses, caveats, and special cases with very strict guidelines.

Students who wish to study in the UK often find the procedure to be complicated. Sayantan Biswas, Co-Founder of UniScholarz, shares UK visa guidelines for students with Free Press Journal’s Study Abroad Guide 2022 :

Sayantan Biswas

1. Types, Timing, and Costs- International students can apply for a student visa as early as 6 months before the start of the course. Keep in mind, however, that applications usually take 3 weeks and can be delayed for several reasons. The duration for which the visa is valid depends entirely on the level of the course: 5 years for degree level and 2 years for below degree level.

An international visa application costs £363 (INR 34,337 as of July 2022). However, optional priority and super priority facilities cost approximately INR 22,900 and INR 99,200 respectively. Furthermore, an Immigration Healthcare Surcharge will be applied depending on the duration of the stay.

2. Acceptance from College- On obtaining an unconditional offer of a seat in a course, the host university will provide you with a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) Number. This reference number is needed right from the beginning of the application procedure.

You may also require an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate for post-graduate education in certain sensitive fields related to military tech, weaponry, pathogenic genetics, etc.

3. Financial Requirements- To prove their financial security both academically and off-campus, students need to clear their course fees for 1 academic year (up to 9 months). The specific amount will be available on the Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). As for the living expenses, you must have enough funds to support yourself for 12 months following the application date. This amount changes based on location:

  1. £1,334 (INR 1,26,236) per month for up to 9 months in London.

  2. £1,023 (INR 96,806) per month for up to 9 months outside London.

4. English Ability- Thankfully, all of Europe follows a standardised metric for gauging English ability called the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) scale. All official English exams provide an equivalent CEFR level going from A1 up to C2. Degree-level courses usually require CEFR B2 or higher, while sub-degree levels require CEFR B1 or higher. C1 and C2 levels can make your life easier in the UK, but they are rarely a necessity unless studying literature or linguistics.

For most Indian students, English exams come in two formats:

  1. The International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

  2. Certain Higher Education Providers (HEPs) might ask students to deliver their English exams which will then be given to the visa office as proof of language proficiency.

5. Your Documents Checklist- Here is a +list of the documentation you should have before applying for a UK student visa:

  1. A current passport or equivalent

  2. Evidence of funds during the stay (course fees + living expenses)

  3. Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) reference number

  4. Documents you used to obtain the CAS

  5. Passport-sized colour photographs

  6. Tuberculosis screening results

  7. Assessment documentation

  8. Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) clearance certificate (if required)

6. The Application and Potential Caveats- The application must be done online and you will need to sign up for a UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) account. As a part of the application, you will eventually need a biometric residence permit (BRP) which will involve a simple fingerprint scan and a digital photo.

These processes can be made more complex if you are travelling with dependents, if you’re not an Indian citizen, or are just not familiar with the education systems of the UK.

Killexams : Attorney reveals the best way to get into law school and then succeed

If you’ve ever thought you have what it takes to become a lawyer, but didn’t know how to go about it, you’re in luck. Longtime estate planning attorney Samuel Ledwitz is spelling out what is the best way to get into law school and how to actually succeed.

And with any endeavor, it starts with education, said Ledwitz, president and managing partner of estate planning law firm The Law Firm of Bezaire, Ledwitz and Associates.

Although there are several ways in California to become a lawyer, the regular way is “you need a bachelor’s degree and then you take the (Law School Admission Test), get a decent score on that, and along with your great grades, you apply to several schools. You should look at a law school guide book, such as Princeton Review’s, that shows you what the admission standards are (grade point average and LSAT scores).”

And there’s more to do with the application process.

“There is typically an essay that you can write to show them the complete you and make you sound like an interesting person to have on campus,” he said. “Then apply accordingly.”

But picking a law school shouldn’t take place solely from the comfort of your couch, Ledwitz said.

“I would also suggest taking a tour of the law school,” he said. “Hopefully, you get into law school. Unlike medical school, any major is good. As long as you get good grades, you’re fine.”

But is any major really adequate? Can one study art or music or science? Ledwitz said yes.

“There’s no major that is a bad major for law school,” he said. “With that said, in college you will have wanted to have taken a lot of writing courses. Good grammar and punctuation are always important. That’s because what a lawyer really does is he bills for words and those words are always persuasive to get a judge to deliver you what your client wants. So, a command of the English language is very important.”

What’s next? Ledwitz explains.

“Next, you need to prep for the LSAT,” he said. “I’m not a big fan of it, but it’s used to predict how well you will do in the first year of law school. It doesn’t mean you’re a good person or exceptionally bright. It just means you probably have the skills needed to get through the first year of law school. Also, the LSAT is very time pressured. It’s not just a question of intelligence, it’s a question of how intelligent you are under extreme time pressure.”

The skills he is referring to are analytical, reasoning, and memorizing comprehension. Ledwitz said those skills will really come in handy, if not at first then sometime down the road.

“One day, you’ll have to explain to a client or someone you’re representing what this all means, why it’s important and how it affects them,” he said. “So, you had better understand what you are doing. You’re using all these skills plus people skills, too.”

After taking the LSAT you need to get letters of recommendation, preferably from your college professors, to send in with your application.

Assuming you make it into law school, Ledwitz said there is another skill you need to have or acquire quickly: the ability to take criticism and a lot of it.

“Law school is emotional and it has its moments,” he said. “You really need to be a person who has thick skin. Some days you get up at 8 in the morning and by 8:30 the professor has already told you that you’re not the brightest. Occasionally, you’re made to feel very small and you feel like everyone else in the class is very smart.”

The best word Ledwitz had to describe the first year of law school was “intense,” adding the hours being put in are extreme.

“You’re taking five classes plus a writing class and everything is due really soon,” he said. “And most of your grade is based on one test: the final exam. It’s heavily weighted. Something like 80 to 90 percent could be on that last day. If you bomb the test, you’ve bombed the course.”

Why does law school work like that? Ledwitz has his theory.

“It’s basically designed to weed you out,” he said. “But the second and third year are mostly a bunch of electives. You get to take what interests you.”

Another theory Ledwitz has for why the first year is so difficult is to make sure you are there for the right reasons and not because you are trying to please someone else.

“You have to want it,” he said. “Not because mom wants you to and not because dad wants you to or that your uncle would be very proud. You need to want it. You need to see yourself doing that job. Otherwise, why would you see yourself spending $100,000, $200,000 for that very frameable degree, only to later decide that you don’t want to do it? You need to really believe you want to do it before you go and spend all that money and years of your life.”

Killexams : MoE backed Bhasha Sangam app to add new features, plans to introduce tests on speaking and writing languages

Language learning mobile application (app) by the Ministry of Education (MoE) – Bhasha Sangam App plans to add new features to facilitate skills to write and speak languages in the next 12 months, Anuradha Agarwal, founder, Multibhashi Solutions private limited (the company which has developed the app) told FE Education online. “In the next phase, the application will include tests to assess the writing and spoken language skills in Indian languages,” she added. Currently the application runs learning modules where it teaches different languages. The application will further have a section called, ‘cultural bytes’ in the form of pop-ups to provide additional information on culture and traditions associated with the languages, she claimed.

The mobile application was launched by MoE and MyGov India with an objective to teach basic conversational skills in Indian languages other than mother tongue. The application features 100 common sentences in 22 different Indian languages which includes tribal languages such as Santhali, Bodo, Maithali, among others.  It allows users to learn as many languages as they want, take tests and get certification from MoE. So far more than 5400 certificates have been given to the learners.

According to Agarwal, about 100 common sentences in each language are in colloquial form to make the process of learning easier. These sentences are available in the script of the given language, Roman script and, and also in audio format. “We have designed the application keeping in mind the regional culture. The app consists of two characters Vaani and Bharat, dressed in regional costumes to guide learners through their journey,” she said. Multibhashi was selected by MyGov through ‘Language Learning Innovation Challenge’. It is available on Android and iOS version and has 2.75 lakh installations, since its launch in November 2021.

Bhasha Sangam App comes under the aegis of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’ which aims to ensure people acquire basic conversational skills in Indian languages. To promote the application, MoE had launched a campaign ‘Bhasha Certificate Selfie’ in February 2022. As a part of the campaign, users were asked to upload their selfie with a certificate from their social media account.

Killexams : Summer 2022 Session I Module List

Exploring Controversial Issues

Instructor:

Dr. John Forren

Should the U.S. Constitution be interpreted to protect flag burning? Should religious minorities be exempted from laws that burden spiritual practices? When (if ever) may government officials discriminate without violating the Constitution’s guarantee of "equal protection of the law"? Is the death penalty a violation of fundamental human rights — or a proper response by society to the problem of violent crime?

Using selected court opinions and other primary sources, you will explore the array of legal, philosophical, and political ideas that have informed American debates on these and other controversial issues throughout history. Through the use of various active-learning activities — including legislative simulations, debates, educational games, guided discussions, and mock trials — you will also learn about and practice the civic skills of dialogue, deliberation, persuasion, and accommodation that generations of Americans have used to resolve differences and solve problems in their communities.

NOTE: This module is hosted over both weeks from July 9-23. Grant funding from the Menard Family Center for Democracy may be available to admitted scholars.
