alternatives for standardized testing disregarding the sat and act when awarding scholarships

Scholarships are needed by many students to help cover the cost of their education but they are not able to receive needed financial aid because of their standardized test scores.

Instead of considering standardized test scores to determine scholarship amount, universities should take a different approach to help students reach their collegiate and future career goals.

More focus on essays and interviews would allow universities to get to know applicants on a personal level.
GPA, level of courses, extracurricular activities, and leadership experience should be considered superior qualities when reviewing applicants.
Alternate tests such as AP and IB tests are better predictors of a student's college readiness.

Disregarding standardized test scores will help more students graduate from college and reach their career goals.
