TOEFL, SAT, GRE, GMAT, MCAT . . .
What a mess of letters! And you thought learning the English language was difficult.

Taking the Exams

Depending on the requirements of particular universities, you will need to take two or more of the following exams and receive equal to or above certain scores on each. High proficiency in English is essential when taking these exams.

For undergraduate students:

  • TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) This tests proficiency in the English language. All international students must take this test (students from some English-speaking nations may receive a waiver).
  • SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) This measures general math and verbal skills. The SAT is the most common entrance exam used by American colleges and universities.
  • ACT Assessment (American College Test) This is a general knowledge test with sections in English, math, reading, and science. It is offered five times each year.

For graduate students:

TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) This tests proficiency in English. All international students must take this test (students from some English-speaking nations may receive a waiver).

GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) The general GRE exam tests verbal, math, and analytical skills. Individual subject exams test the depth and breadth of knowledge in specific fields.

GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) This tests areas directly related to the study of business. Students who are applying to business schools must take the GMAT.

LSAT (Law School Admission Test) This tests areas directly related to the study of law. Students who are applying to law schools must take the GMAT.

MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) This tests areas directly related to the study of medicine. Students who are applying to medical schools must take the GMAT.

Depending on where you apply and for what program, schools may weigh your scores more heavily than any other part of your application, or they may simply check that you have met minimum requirements before looking at other parts of your application.

Some tests--the GRE general exam is one example--allow you to participate in a "student search service." This is a free service that allows the testing service to give your name and address to schools that are looking for applicants with certain scores. You may hear from good schools that you had not considered.
