I'm not necessarily saying there's an advantage in not taking one or both. I'm simply saying it isn't absolutely necessary to do so. I think people who come to this forum need to be aware of what their options are. Getting more education after 12th grade without taking those standardized tests is an option.
But as for advantages, one reason some families turn to homeschooling is because their kids have test anxiety and they want to save the kids from having to take tests--sometimes especially standardized tests.
I'm surprised that people here this year don't seem to be aware of this. 10-15 years ago when I was first looking into homeschooling, it was one of the big reasons people were leaving the public schools!
