What are standards for University oboe auditions?

The audition requirements state that scales should be played 2 octaves, but when I asked about A as an example, I was told it isn't standard, so it would not be required. I am not sure how high "standard" reaches. As of right now, I am playing 2 octaves up to F. Should I go to G for college auditions?... show more The audition requirements state that scales should be played 2 octaves, but when I asked about A as an example, I was told it isn't standard, so it would not be required.

Also, should the chromatic scale be played from the lowest note to the highest I can play, or should it be C to C?
