This page has information about some of the additional tests you can take. These are qualifications from the USA but they can be taken all around the world, and although we can't admit you with these qualifications (they are not included in our typical offers), they are normally taken in addition to AP exams.

 

SAT (I) Reasoning Tests

Information on SAT I Tests can be found on the College Board SAT website. You can do a search for SAT Test Centres and look at the info for taking SAT outside the USA, if relevant.

If you are taking SAT (I), note that it would need to be taken alongside other qualifications such as five Advanced Placement exams (or equivalent qualifications). We can't admit you on the basis of SAT scores alone, but we will take them into account, if that makes sense.

Please also bear in mind that if you've taken SATs, you're required to disclose all tests taken and scores achieved (including retakes) on your UCAS application. (we should warn you that you may disadvantage your application if you don't include them, and Cambridge Colleges can contact College Board or your school to confirm your results). 
 

Cambridge course The SAT scores we are looking for
Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, Medicine, Natural Sciences, and Psychological and Behavioural Sciences a minimum combined score of 1,500 with a Mathematics section score of at least 750.

SAT II Subject Tests are being phased out by College Board, but if you've taken them in the past then please ensure that you include them on your UCAS application!

We can't admit you on the basis of SAT II Subject tests (they are not equivalent to the qualifications needed to meet our entry requirements) but we will take them into account if you've taken them alongside other qualifications such as five Advanced Placements.
