Please note:

MIT and the admissions office will be closed November 24–25 for Thanksgiving break, and will open on November 28.

How does MIT use my test scores?

MIT uses a holistic admissions process, so test scores are just one factor among many for evaluating your preparedness for MIT. Test scores are evaluated alongside other components of the application such as curriculum, grades, and other examinations. Test scores are not the single factor that determines an admission decision (there is no single factor), but they do help us better evaluate academic preparation.

If you are planning on applying to MIT and would like to see our testing requirements, please visit our Tests and scores page.
