I agree that standardized tests could be a good parameter as a requirement for any application. It is known that there are many applications that ask for standardized documents.

Also, if you are going to a job interview it is possible that the company would ask you to do a psychological test. The psychological test could be a standardized test that is recognized abroad.
Finally, a standardized test could help you when you are going to apply in many opportunities like scholarships or jobs in another country. It is very important to be prepared for that kind of test if you want to win a position that is wanted and filter between other applicants.
