YEREVAN, Armenia On March 6, 2024, American University of Armenia (AUA) Extension welcomed 45 high-schoolers and prospective university applicants to an open information session to help them learn more about the SAT, ACT, TOEFL, and IELTS standardized exams.

Considering that these tests change periodically, AUA Extension ensures that the most up-to-date information on these tests is brought to the test takers in a timely fashion.

Throughout the event, expert instructors from AUA Extension skillfully guided the young participants on the format and various sections of these exams, their content, and respective preparation techniques and strategies.
