Admitted students tend to rank in the top 10-15% of their high school classes at graduation.

Harvard admits students with a range of scores on standardized tests such as SAT, ACT, and SAT Subject Tests, and reports not to have minimum required scores. But most admitted students will score between 600 and 800 on SATs.

Applicants to Harvard are advised to take two SAT Subject Tests, and should seek to demonstrate a wide range of scholarly interests by taking Subject Tests in different areas.
