 FAQ About Test-Optional

1. Test-Optional vs. Test-Blind

Test optional means that you can still submit your scores (and you should if you can) and universities will take them into consideration. On the other hand, test blind means colleges won’t look at test scores at all.

2. For a student entering the 10th grade, should they prepare for SAT/ ACT or wait to confirm if 2023/24 is test-optional or not?

It depends on your college list. For now, it’s a great time to take the diagnostic test and then strategize to see if you will have an advantage.

3. Do I still need to submit SAT subject test scores?

For test-optional schools, you should submit your scores. Test-blind schools will not consider the subject test scores.
