@collegemom3717 - All standardized tests were scheduled for this year and thus most have been postponed. She’s waiting on her ACT score from August which ACT has informed us they may have lost due to the change in web portal platform - her case is being researched and marked as “urgent.” We’ve been waiting months. Sigh. She has three SAT IIs that were pushed to Dec 5 due to cancellations, and we’re hoping they aren’t cancelled again.
As for APs, she goes to a competitive and progressive private school which teaches AP level curriculum but does not encourage students to necessarily take the tests thus she never did previously - the schools prides itself on not teaching to the test, promoting independent thinking and are largely project based in approach. Had we known that she 1) would be interested in the UK and 2) how important APs are to UK schools, we obviously would have approached this differently a year or so ago.
It’s a crazy year, and if testing doesn’t happen next month, then I’ve told my daughter it might not be meant to be.
That said, super curious to know when St. A’s says they’re college board optional… do they mean it?
