Information On New Summer SAT Test - Score At The Top - South Florida

Last Updated on Apr 26, 2017 9:30:00 AM

With the January SAT test date a thing of the past, the College Board is now offering a new “summer” SAT.

Most everyone we know in college admissions thinks it’s a good idea, given the college application schedule that students must set for themselves as they approach the senior year.

An August date gives rising seniors the opportunity to take the SAT at least one more time – way before even the early decision/early action deadlines. Before this year, juniors often chose to either test twice in the spring or wait until October or November of senior year to retest. You can still do that, but the August test is opening eyes to a really favorable new option.

AP, IB, and AICE Programs: A Brief Comparison (Part 4) - Score At The Top

Last Updated on Feb 2, 2015 12:00:00 AM

 

In this final post, we offer a few thoughts by way of comparing and contrasting AP, IB and AICE.

Comparisons

So how does AICE compare with IB and AP? All three programs are well established in high schools and recognized by universities around the country. Both AICE (AS and A Level) and IB are accepted at universities around the world, too. The main difference between AICE and IB is the flexibility of the AICE Diploma. Students have the freedom to create their own educational experience within the three AICE curriculum areas. We feel that AICE combines the best of both AP and IB in that students can pick and choose what courses they want but still earn an internationally-recognized diploma.
