Are standardized test scores required (like the SAT or ACT)?

QuestBridge -

QuestBridge recommends, but does not require, that students take at least one standardized test before applying for the College Prep Scholars Program. If you have taken any of these tests, please include these scores in your College Prep Scholars Program application by entering them on your Testing and Honors page and uploading a test score report. We will accept any PSAT, PreACT, ACT Aspire, SAT, ACT, SAT Subject Test, or Advanced Placement (AP) Exam scores.

A note about how test scores are used in our evaluation: Test scores are not everything. QuestBridge staff read your entire application and base their decisions on your application as a whole, not only your test scores. If you do not have any test scores or you feel your scores are not strong, your application won't be disregarded. Rather, your application reader will look at all of the other portions of the application to determine if you should be selected as a College Prep Scholar. Application readers will also judge your academic preparedness based on teacher recommendation, transcript, and essay. If you lack test scores, you can also demonstrate your thinking and writing skills through devoting extra effort to your essays.
