As soon as possible Take the ACT or SAT test as soon as possible. A sum score of 68 on the ACT or a score of 820 adding the verbal and math sections are the minimum scores that need to be achieved for eligibility purposes. Make sure that you select 9999 (NCAA Eligibility Center) and 009651 (Texas A&M International University) on your test application when choosing places to have your score sent.
