    I was wondering if I could submit my MCA test scores, the state required test scores to graduate. I did really well on them (scored in the 99 percentile). How would I submit them, and would they help me if I did submit them? Thanks!

    I can't imagine that the AFA would care about that score what-so-ever. Many states have exams and they all have different levels of difficulty. The great equalizer are the SAT/ACT tests. Study hard and get in the 99% percentile of those and THAT will help you! Good luck!

    +1 to above. I suppose it might be worthwhile indicating your achievement elsewhere in the application if it fits, but otherwise forget it. Besides, wouldn't these show up in your transcript if they are state required tests?

    I am pretty sure every state in the nation because of the No Child Left Behind Acr requires their own state version of this test if they want to get any federal funding.

    In VA it is called the SOL, In NC it is called the EOGs. However, as others have stated it should be on your official sealed transcript, or maybe the GC inputs when they do their portion, but otherwise, I highly doubt it will make any difference.

    You can be the top 99% in Idaho, but they are looking at it from a national perspective. I would contact your MOCs tosee if you can include it on your nom application. You need a nom to get appointed.

    Not that it matters right now, but it might be worth noting that "Common Core" is coming for sure.

    I think already more states are on it than not, and standardized tests are promised for 2014/2015. At that point, the SAs might decide that state testing has more value in terms of admissions criteria.
