SAT Program

What is SAT?

 

            Many colleges and universities require their applicants  to take a three-hour standardized examination called the SAT. It measures skills that you need for academic and career success.

 

  When colleges consider your application, they take into account many factors:

 

  •           Your academic record.
  •           Your participation in school activities and sports
  •            Letters of recommendation
  •           Your SAT test scores.

 


          
What does the SAT test ?

  
            The verbal sections test your critical reading skills, your vocabulary and your writing skills. One goal of the exam is to determine whether when you read a passage you understand what the author is saying and can make valid conclusions based on the text. Another goal is to determine if the level of your vocabulary is sufficiently high for you to be able to read and understand college level texts. 
            The quantitative sections of the SAT are a test of your knowledge of arithmetic , geometry and algebra and what is more important your ability to reason logically.
What many students find difficult about these questions is not the level of mathematics . rather , it is the difficulty in which lies in the way that the students must use the mathematics they already know as they reason through the solution.

 


When should you take the SAT ?


  The SAT 1 and SAT 2 Exams are offered as follows:

 

  •    October      ( SAT 1 - only ) 
  •    November  ( SAT 2 - only )
  •    December  ( SAT 1 - only )
  •    May            ( SAT 1 - only )
  •    June (both  SAT 1 and SAT 2 are offered )

 

It is recommended to have three months preparation for the SAT exams. It is best to take the SAT at the earliest convenience to receive feedback on your score and be able to supply it the universities along with your application. 

 

 

* Registration for SAT 1 and SAT 2 are done separately *

How many times should you take the SAT ?

   
    It is of little value to take the SAT multiple times if you expect to earn roughly the same score, but there is nothing wrong with taking the SAT two or three times , so long as you are confident that your scores will improve substantially each time based on practice testing.

 


How to register for the SAT ?


     You should register for the SAT at least six weeks before your testing date. That way you will avoid late registration fees and increase your chances of taking the exam at your first choice testing centre. You can register through the mail by completing the SAT registration form found inside the annual SAT bulletin . If you'd like , you can  convenientlyregister online or by telephone.

Mailing address , phone numbers , and Web address for both of the main registration centers are:
