The education portal SAT.com has released a new infographic detailing the best places to study for the 2020 academic year.
The data comes from the 2017 edition of the SAT, which is the only one of its kind.
For the first time, the data is split into six areas: the “school-specific test,” which assesses students’ knowledge of the subject matter and how well they can apply the material; the “test of knowledge,” which is a combination of tests taken by students in each of the six areas; the composite SAT, a measure of all subjects; the exam-taker’s test, which measures how well the student can solve a problem on the test; the final exam, which assess how well a student performed on the SAT.
The first five charts show how different schools stack up on these rankings, with the highest score in each category.
There are also a few surprises, such as a surprising amount of high-achieving schools, which have been the focus of some critics.
The most popular schools in the country for the 2021 academic year are: American University, which has scored a perfect score for every subject in the composite test; Duke University, with a score of an A-minus; and Cornell University, the highest-scoring school in each area.
It is important to note that the highest scoring schools in each subject area are listed on the left of the charts.
The chart on the right shows how well students are doing on the final SAT, the SAT-I, and the SAT Subject Tests.
For example, the top schools in Subject Test scores are Cornell, University of Texas at Austin, and University of Michigan.
A few other schools that scored high in the final test are Yale, Brown, and Princeton.
The best-performing schools in this year’s composite SAT are the University of California at Berkeley, which scored a grade of A-plus in all six subjects; Harvard University, Harvard University Medical School, and Yale University.
All six schools in all subject areas were ranked among the top 10 schools in a recent survey of schools in America by the National Association of School Administrators.
