College Counseling Corner: Important News for 11th Graders and their Families

Although the TOEFL is offered in two locations in Bamako, we recommend that students take the TOEFL iBT (Internet Based Test) at the ACI 2000 location. Our former students have had computer issues at the Badalabougou location and therefore, we do not recommend that site.

If you have not signed up for the TOEFL yet, do so as quickly as possible. The TOEFL will take place the following dates this academic year in ACI 2000:

  •  March 4
  • April 29
  • May 30
  • June 3

There are limited amounts of seats, so do not delay! Although the test is offered in the summer and will be offered next year, it is better to take the TOEFL as a junior so there are less tasks to complete your senior year.

The SAT will be offered at AISB this May and next October and December. The College Board is currently conducting a major investigation of international cheating for infractions in Asia. We take security very seriously at AISB, and will continue to do so. It is important to remember to always bring your passport identification and your ticket to a standardized test. You will always want to make sure that the name that is on your ticket matches your identification perfectly. We have had no problems here at AISB, and we expect to have none.
