Should I take AP or IB tests related to my academic interest or intended major?

Testing

Dartmouth College is test optional for the Class of 2026.

You are welcome to take whatever AP or IB tests you choose. You will likely perform best in subjects you enjoy and this can help us understand your academic strengths.

Some AP or IB test scores may help with placement at Dartmouth and give you a head start on your desired concentration, but you will also have the opportunity to take placement exams during orientation.
