Standardized testing & AP Exams

    • SAT + ACT registration instructions
    • SAT + ACT study resources
    • Fee waiver information
    • Testing accommodations
    • TOEFL registration

    What tests are offered at FHS? 
    For the 2023-24 school year, only the SAT will be offered at Framingham High School. Students may take the ACT at other high schools. 

    Important SAT/ACT Test Day Information:
    Make sure you bring what you need for test day! This includes a printed copy of your admissions ticket, a photo ID (a school ID is valid), No.2 pencils, and an approved calculator. Need help registering? Visit the College & Career Center (K002).

    What is the Difference Between the SAT/ACT?
    There are a few key differences between the SAT and the ACT. ACT scores range between 1-36, and SAT scores range between 800-1600. The ACT allows a calculator to be used for all math sections; the SAT only permits a calculator on some sections (though, both tests focus on arithmetic, Algebra I&II, Geometry, and Trigonometry). ACT does have a science focus, unlike the SAT. *Both the ACT & SAT are accepted by almost all colleges/universities in the U.S.

    Should I take the ACT/SAT Combo Practice Test?
    Yes! For all the reasons above, you may have a standardized test preference. The only way to find out which one you have is to take a sample of each test. Contact Ms. Erikson for details on how to find an online combo practice test.

    Do I Qualify for a Fee Waiver, & Where Do I Get One?
    Do you have free/reduced lunch and/or receive any financial assistance? If so, you qualify for a SAT fee waiver! A fee waiver covers the cost of up to two SAT tests and three SAT Subject Tests. If you need an SAT or ACT fee waiver, please contact Ms. Erikson and she will get you a code and help you register.

    How do I Send Schools my ACT/SAT Scores?
    Official SAT/ACT scores must be submitted through their respective websites. Scores are NOT sent by FHS students’ respective colleges. Four score sends are covered by the registration fee for both the SAT and ACT. Students who qualify for free/reduced lunch get up to eight free score sends.
