Harvard prospective students

Shoul I apply without test scores?
Answered

Due to COVID-19, Harvard has waived the standart testing requirement to the class of 2026. I'm from Brazil, and have not been able to take the tests, also, it would be both financially and logistically impossible for me to do so. Will my application be damaged in any way? Is there anything I can do to strengthen it?

So you are trying to get into Harvard? Correct?

Most likely not. This situation is probably why many schools no longer required the SAT. Just explain your circumstances in the additional information section or in the COVID essay, as this will inform them as to why you were unable to take the SAT.
