Depending on the competition, standardized test-taking can also be part of the application process. There are different kinds of standardized tests: language tests, tests of skills or abilities, entrance exams etc. When it comes to applying for a scholarship program abroad, the most common standardized tests are language tests.
In most cases, standardized tests’ results are submitted with the rest of the application documents before the competition deadline. In some cases though, standardized tests can be taken after the final deadline or even after the first round of selection.
- You need to register for a standardized test before taking it. Some standardized tests have registration deadlines.
- Taking a preparation course and/or using preparation books can help you achieve better results.
