Standardized tests such as the SAT or ACT are required by many, but not all, colleges as part of the admissions process. Some colleges require additional standardized tests such as the SAT II subject exams. Additionally, college credit can be obtained for successful completion of AP exams.
For a description of the tests (PSAT, ACT, SAT, SAT Subject and AP), information on how to register, test preparation, and a comparison of SAT vs. ACT, see the article Testing for College Admission.
