Juniors: Take your Standardized Tests

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Now is not the time for students to procrastinate. It can hurt you.

Juniors: FINISH all standardized tests THIS YEAR. This includes the ACT/ SAT/ TOEFL and SUBJECT TESTS.

Waiting until the fall is almost always a bad idea, as our expert college counselors can tell you.


1. It makes choosing an early decision school extremely difficult.
2. Students cannot apply in August to rolling admissions schools.
3. If an emergency arises on the day of the test, or you’re sick, or your car breaks down, there will be no time to take the test again. If your bad day happens on the last possible test date, you’re truly out of luck – your bad score may be the one you’ll have to live with.

June 15th is the day Juniors should have completed their standardized tests, and have their early decision school selected (if students will be applying early decision). For International College Counselors students, the first draft of the common application essays is also due.

Sure college counselors will agree there’s no point in taking a standardized test if you aren’t ready, but ICC is delivering this message with enough time for you to prepare. If you need tutoring or test prep, contact one of our expert college counselors and we will give you names and numbers to call. And read about your standardized test score reporting rights.

Now is a great time for sophomores to begin to prepare for the SAT/ACT/ TOEFL and SUBJECT TESTS. Students who finish those exams in their junior year are always the happiest and usually the most successful.
