PSAT, SAT, AP AND TOEFL
Our high school program’s foundation is based upon the College Board’s SAT and AP curriculum specifications. High school students at Concordia who are preparing themselves for university or college in the United States or elsewhere including Hong Kong can qualify for admission by writing and excelling in the SAT Reasoning, Subject Tests and the TOEFL-iBT test in English proficiency.
Students with good AP scores are generally admitted in preference by universities all over the world. Successful completion of AP courses always places a student in a more advantageous position in college application.
High School students at Concordia write the following tests and exams annually:
Grade 10-11 Students : PSAT in October
Grade 11-12 Students : SAT Reasoning Test in January
SAT Subject Tests in June
AP Exams in May
Grade 11 Students : TOEFL-iBT in May
Preparation for the above stated tests/exams is built into our regular High School curriculum. Therefore, students are prepared for university/college entrance upon completing Grade 12 with our Graduation Diploma.
