    Explanation
    If someone wants to earn a Bachelor's degree (B.A. or B.S), they need to go to a university. Trade/vocational schools and community colleges typically offer certificate or associate degree programs, while universities offer bachelor's degree programs. Work experience alone does not typically lead to earning a bachelor's degree. Therefore, the correct answer is university.

    • A.

      University

    • B.

      Graduate School (Masters)

    • C.

      Trade/Vocational School

    Correct Answer
    C. Trade/Vocational School
    Explanation
    If you want to learn a specific trade/job such as cosmetology, fashion design, or dental assistant, it is more appropriate to go to a trade/vocational school rather than a university or graduate school. Trade/vocational schools offer specialized programs and hands-on training that are focused on practical skills required for these specific trades/jobs. These schools provide a more direct and efficient pathway to gain the necessary knowledge and experience in a shorter period of time compared to traditional academic institutions.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What school can I go to  in order to transfer to a university?

    • A.

      Community College

    • B.

      Trade School

    Correct Answer
    A. Community College
    Explanation
    A community college is a type of school where students can complete their general education requirements and earn an associate's degree. Many students choose to attend a community college with the intention of transferring to a university afterwards. Community colleges often have transfer agreements with universities, making it easier for students to transfer credits and continue their education at a four-year institution. Therefore, attending a community college is a common pathway for students who want to transfer to a university.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    UCLA is a __________  university

    • A.

      Public

    • B.

      Private

    Correct Answer
    A. Public
    Explanation
    UCLA is a public university because it is funded and operated by the government. Public universities are typically funded through taxpayer dollars and offer lower tuition rates for in-state residents. UCLA, being a public university, provides education and resources to a wide range of students from different backgrounds and is accountable to the public for its operations and decisions.

  • 7. 

    USC is a __________  university

    • A.

      Public

    • B.

      Private

    Correct Answer
    B. Private
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Private" because USC, which stands for the University of Southern California, is a privately funded university. Private universities are typically funded by tuition fees, donations, and endowments, rather than by government funding. They often have higher tuition costs compared to public universities and tend to have smaller class sizes and more resources available to students.

  • 8. 

    Mark the option that is INCORRECT. A private university

    • A.

      Is typically more expensive than public university

    • B.

      Is a better school than public university

    • C.

      Offers smaller classes

    Correct Answer
    B. Is a better school than public university
    Explanation
    The given answer "Is a better school than public university" is incorrect because the question is asking for the option that is incorrect, and this statement is not necessarily true. The quality of a university cannot be determined solely based on whether it is private or public. There are excellent public universities that are on par with or even better than some private universities in terms of academics, faculty, resources, and opportunities. Therefore, this option is incorrect.

    • D.

      All of the Above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the Above

    To be a competitive candidate for universities, aiming for high grades is important as it demonstrates academic excellence. Focused extra-curricular activities are also crucial as they showcase a well-rounded personality and the ability to manage time effectively. High test scores are another essential factor as they indicate a strong understanding of the subject matter. Therefore, all of the options mentioned (high grades, focused extra-curricular activities, and high test scores) are necessary for being a competitive candidate for universities.

    • A.

      SAT II

    • B.

      Money

    • C.

      ACT

    Correct Answer
    C. ACT
    Explanation
    Colleges will accept the ACT as a substitute for the SAT. The ACT is another standardized test that measures a student's knowledge and skills in various subject areas. Many colleges and universities accept either the SAT or ACT as part of their admissions process, allowing students to choose which test to take based on their strengths and preferences. Therefore, if a student does not want to take the SAT, they can opt to take the ACT instead and still have their scores considered by colleges.

    Rate this question:

    In order to get into a UC, the tests I need to take are:

    • A.

      SAT/ ACT & 1 SAT II (1 subject test)

    • B.

      SAT/ACT

    • C.

      SAT/ACT & 2 SAT II (2 subject tests)

    Correct Answer
    C. SAT/ACT & 2 SAT II (2 subject tests)
    Explanation
    To gain admission to a UC, the requirement is to take the SAT/ACT test along with 2 SAT II subject tests. This means that in addition to the general SAT/ACT exam, students must also choose and take two subject-specific tests. The other options mentioned in the question, such as only taking the SAT/ACT or taking one SAT II subject test, do not fulfill the admission criteria for a UC. Therefore, the correct answer is SAT/ACT & 2 SAT II (2 subject tests).

Work study programs typically offer part-time jobs that are related to the student's field of study, allowing them to gain practical skills and knowledge in their chosen career path.

It is essentially free money provided by the school or other organizations to help students pay for their education. Grants are typically awarded based on factors such as income, family size, and the cost of attending school. They are a valuable resource for students who may not have the financial means to afford their education and can help alleviate the burden of tuition and other expenses.
