Test Preparation

SAT Key Facts:
  • SAT is developed and delivered by College Board, a non-profit organization in the USA.
  • The redesigned SAT is more closely aligned with the knowledge and skills that are taught at high schools.
  • It does not assess how well you have memorized a large set of facts. Rather, it evaluates your ability to apply the knowledge and skills you will need in college and career.
  • SAT is offered internationally in most countries at least six times each year–in October, November, December, January, May, and June.
  • The redesigned SAT has four tests, with the Essay being optional.
  • Every candidate will sit Reading Test, Writing and Language Test, and Math Test.
  • It is good news that there is no penalty for wrong answers.
  • Your SAT Score Report will also include the percentile rank, which ranges from 1 to 99, for each score and subscore. Your percentile rank indicates the percentage of test-takers who scored at or below your score.
  • Registering for the SAT allows you to send your results to up to four institutions; you can identify these institutions within nine days of taking the test
