Standardized tests are required for every freshman application to MIT. However, they are not the only factor, or even the most important factor when we review an application.
We do not have minimum scores for the tests as scores are evaluated within an applicant's context. To view test score statistics from the most recent admissions year, visit our Admissions Statistics page.
MIT uses superscoring. If you take the same test (SAT (old or new), ACT, or SAT Subject Test) multiple times, we will consider the highest score achieved in each section. We do this in order to consider all applicants in their best light.
Students are free to use the College Board's Score Choice option and the ACT's option to submit the scores of your choice.
