Hi, it's great that you are only 12 and thinking ahead.

I don't know if you are an American or not but if you are, standardized testing is part of middle school and high school in America and many students get introduced to the PRE-SAT in 8th and 9th grade, the PSAT 10 in 10th grade, the Official PSAT in the first semester of 11th grade and the SAT which is the one that you have to submit to gain acceptance. There is another test that is equally valid and accepted which is the ACT. Similar to the PSAT there is something called the PreACT that high school students take in 10th grade. Both are used by 99.9% of colleges in the US.

Right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic, all colleges made these tests optional so many students are now applying to colleges without these tests. This program will continue for next year as well. As far as when you apply to college in 5 or 6 years, I would imagine the world will be a safer place and testing will return. But keep in mind there is a push to eliminate these types of tests altogether. Large state college systems in California are phasing them out altogether.

If you are not living in the US, you may also have to take an English test called the TOEFL or IELTS exam. All these tests can be registered and taken in your own country.

If you have access to the internet, start watching youtube videos like supertutortv to get yourself familiar with both types of tests and the terms and language that are used to describe the college applications process. Also, an excellent way to start gaining foundational knowledge so you can succeed at these types of tests is to open a free account on Khan Academy which is an online repository of teaching videos and lessons covering all subjects. It will help you greatly if you master core subjects like Math, Reading, and Science.



Good Luck
