College-Bound Seniors, 1973-74.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
This national Admissions Testing Program Summary Report includes comprehensive records of all 1973-74 seniors, wherever located, who registered for the college boards before April of their senior year. Some highlights include the facts that most achievement test score averages of 1973-74 seniors were higher than those of 1972-73 seniors, and the the 1973-74 class was the first to have as many women as men take the SAT. Descriptive information indicates that 14 percent of the students belong to an ethnic minority, and that 40 percent plan to seek help in college in finding part-time work. Three-fourths of the seniors were in the highest two-fifths of their class, with their latest grades in academic areas averaging 3.0 or B. Health-related majors were the first choice field of post-secondary study for nearly one-fifth of the young women, with the popularity of education decreasing for both sexes; biological sciences were the most popular fields. The report also includes information on how to obtain other ATP summaries. (Author/PC)
