29. What tests are required for admission to AUA?
Applicants must submit proof of English proficiency and math proficiency. For English proficiency, this is typically through the TOEFL iBT or IELTS Academic exams. Native and near native speakers are eligible for a waiver. For math proficiency, applicants should present official results typically from the AUA Math Test, the SAT, or ACT exams.
30. How can I ensure AUA receives my official test scores?
For AUA to receive your official test scores, you must ensure you indicate AUA’s institution code either at the time of registration or during the exam. These codes are as follows:
TOEFL iBT – 4151
SAT – 7257
ACT – 6982
IELTS Academic exam results must be sent to AUA directly from the British Council or by uploading your IELTS Test Report Form to your online application while the AUA Math Test score is automatically transferred to the Office of Admissions.

34. Is there a minimum score for English?
No. However, English language proficiency is an important factor for succeeding in your studies at AUA. Applicants with TOEFL iBT scores below the target of 79 or IELTS Academic scores below the target of 6.5 may be offered conditional admission. Applicants with a TOEFL iBT score of 67 or lower or an IELTS Academic score of 5.5 and lower will not be considered for admission.
Prior to enrollment, such applicants will need to take and successfully complete AUA Extension’s English Enhancement Course or study the English language independently and retake the TOEFL iBT (or IELTS Academic) exams by August 1 and score at least 79 (or 6.5 on the IELTS Academic).
35. I took the TOEFL iBT and scored a 75. Should I retake?
AUA practices holistic admissions and as such, all decisions are based on a number of factors. If you have the time and inclination to improve your score, it is up to you. Note, however, that the test scores are not the only decisive factors for admission to AUA. You should not decide against applying simply because of a score. However, if you do receive a score of 78 or lower, you may be offered conditional admission and must meet the conditions stipulated in your Admission Status Letter prior to enrollment. Conditions may include successfully completing AUA Extension’s English Enhancement Course or studying the English language independently and retaking the TOEFL iBT (or IELTS Academic) exams by August 1 and scoring at least 79 (or 6.5 on the IELTS Academic).
36. If I have already taken the TOEFL iBT and am scheduled to take the SAT, may I skip the English portion of the exam and only do the math?
Yes. You can choose to skip the English portion of the SAT exam if you already have a TOEFL iBT score and do not intend to use your SAT score for any other university. AUA requires applicants to demonstrate English and Math proficiency. This is normally done through the TOEFL for English and AUA Math Exam for Math. Applicants who choose to take both the TOEFL iBT and SAT may skip the English portion of the SAT exam – however, this is not recommended. Please also note that by skipping the English portion of the SAT exam, applicants will not be able to use their scores for applications to other universities.
37. How high of a score do I need for the AUA Math Test? How do I know if I need to retake it?
Admission to AUA is competitive and based on a number of factors. While AUA does have target scores, scoring above them does not guarantee your admission to AUA. On the other hand, you may be considered for conditional admission even if you score less than the targets. For a list of target scores by program, please visit here.
38. Which score will be used if I take a test more than once?
AUA will use the highest valid and official test scores.
39. Does the AUA Math Test include questions from the recently added Republic of Armenia math curriculum for high schools?
Yes. The test will contain questions on topics that are covered during the last three years of high school, based on Armenia’s mathematics curriculum. These topics fall into the following seven categories: Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Functions, Vectors, and Sets.
40. How many times can I take the AUA Math Test?
