The 'College Admissions: What Really Matters' infographic gives some helpful tips and tricks to high school students looking to get an edge on the competition in the post-secondary acceptance game.

Information compiled from a report completed by the National Association for College Admission Counseling and other statistics from Online College Courses was assembled in this graphic to help students focus on what tests and grades are the most important for getting in to a good school.

According to the chart, the two most heavily weighted factors that post-secondary institutions look at are the strength and breadth of an applicant's curriculum and their grades in college prep classes.The total score on one's admission test was the third most important element to scoring a spot in the scholastic center of one's choice and the chart also recommends retaking this test if the first score received is not up to par.
