Standardized tests are expected for anyone applying as a first-year student to MIT. However, they are not the only factor, as well as the most essential aspect.
When we receive your application, we review all of your academic information—grades, scores, classes, etc.—to ensure that you will be prepared for MIT. In part because of the strength of our applicant pool, nearly all our applicants are particularly well ready to succeed at MIT.
This implies that you ought ton’t stress out too much regarding your scores, because we admit people, not numbers. With that said, tests are certainly important, and you should prepare for them as best you can.
Standardized test requirements: 2019–2020 and beyond
All applicants must complete one test from each category.
1. Standardized Test
2. Math SAT test that is subject
3. Science SAT Subject Test
For native English speakers:
We require the SAT or even the ACT. In addition, we require two SAT tests that are subject one in math (level 1 or 2), and one in science (physics, chemistry, or biology e/m). We don’t have a preference as to which science test you take or which math level you are taking.
For non-native English speakers:
You have got two options:
- Use the tests required for native English speakers (see above)
- Take the TOEFL and two SAT tests that are subject one essay writing in math (level a few) and something in science (physics, chemistry, or biology e/m)
That you take the TOEFL, although it is not required if you have been using English for less than five years or do not speak English at home or at school, we strongly suggest.
While MIT will likely not require the ACT writing section or SAT optional essay, MIT does value writing and communication highly.
MIT believes that students in virtually any field should learn how to write prose that is clear, organized, and eloquent, and to convincingly facts that are present data, and ideas. Czytaj więcej about First-year applicants: Tests & scores.How we use test scores …
