US Schools That Don’t Require SAT Scores

< 1 minute

us schools that don't need SAT scoresThe SAT test is just one of many criterion that should test how ready a person is for College. It is commonly used in the US and even other countries, as a yardstick  or admission into a university or college. However, for one reason or the other most students don’t just want to write the SAT.

The SAT, though impressive in terms of the number of students taking it yearly has its downsides. Over the years, students have found ways to trick the system into achieving higher scores. The rich have found ways to beat the system to achieve higher scores. Higher scores translate into ability to get admitted by top universities, scholarships, etc. Some schools do not buy this, and prefer to judge students on other criteria.
You don’t need SAT scores to apply to these schools. All you need is results from: WASSCE (WAEC) or simply put: your high school diploma.
